USA’s Nikki Haley and Israel’s Danny Danon Stand Tall at the UN General Assembly
Israel-bashers and Jew-haters in suits and ties, plus timid, dissembling ambassadors from countries that surely know better, voted on December 21 in the UN General Assembly to ‘nullify’ the United States’ formal recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Talk about chutzpah!
This absurd “resolution” is a pointless gesture because the UN cannot dictate any such thing to any nation. Nor can it tell any sovereign nation where it may or may not locate its own capital. The UN has once again brought shame and dishonor to itself and its charter.
Jews have lived continuously in Israel for over 3000 years, Jerusalem has always been its capital, and Israel is the only sovereign state that ever existed on that land. In his presentation, Ambassador Danon of Israel held up a 2000-year-old Israeli coin as evidence of Jerusalem being Israel’s capital.
Those who want to learn more about Jerusalem and Israel can read about in a book – it’s called The Bible. And for those who don’t like to read, there are many fine movies about it as well.
Granted, this absurdity may not rate as the UN’s darkest hour, but is is surely among its dumbest.
Ambassador Haley made it quite plain that (1) the US is “taking names” and (2) the UN may suffer financial and other consequences for this disrespectful insult to both the United States and Israel.
Kudos to Ambassadors Haley and Danon!
