A new sheriff arrived in town with the appointment of Nikki Haley, former governor of South Carolina, as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. In her first speech, she indicated the disproportionate contribution by the United States -- 22% of the UN budget and 28% of UN peacekeeping operations -- to the world organization. The UN budget should be subject "strategic cutting," and sometimes withholding of dues.
In picturesque language, Haley spoke of the need for a strong U.S. role at the UN. She had already made clear during her testimony on January 18, 2017, to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the UN had been more consistent and more outrageous in its bias against Israel, the close ally of the U.S., than regarding any other country.
Implicitly, she criticized the policy of President Barack Obama regarding Israel when the U.S. abstained from voting on UN Security Council Resolution 2334 of December 23, 2016 that condemned Israeli action on settlements and thus allowed the Resolution to be passed. According to President Donald Trump, his administration will never abstain when the UN proposes any action that comes into direct conflict with the interests and values of the U.S., or encourages a boycott of Israel.

There is a serious disconnect between the title of this thread and the content.
A new sheriff arrived in town...
There’s a disconnect in the content of the article too; it’s about an old decision by the Versailles tribunal against the PLO over building a light rail line in Jerusalem and something about the notion that Haley ought to invoke that in the UN in defense of Israel.
I hope ALL rinos learn the lesson that they don’t have to be politicians to get elected. They all believed, like Hillary, they had to say want people wanted to hear to get elected. I thunk Nicki learned if you speak the truth and mean it, that’s what the people want to hear.
You noticed too?
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
The article is a bit disjointed. There have been articles posted on the French court decision. This article attempts to relate it to SOS Haley's opinions.
It’s shameful how SO MANY news outlets put out provocative inaccurate headlines just to get you to click.
