UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s epic Moynihan-like defense of Israel at U.N.

"I’m here to say the United States will not turn a blind eye to this anymore. I am here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel. I’m here to emphasize the United States is determined to stand up to the UN’s anti-Israel bias. We will never repeat the terrible mistake of Resolution 2334 and allow one-sided Security Council resolutions to condemn Israel. Instead, we will push for action on the real threats we face in the Middle East." UN Ambassador Nikki Haley of the United States

"Nikki Haley always has been pro-Israel. But as U.N. Ambassador, she doesn’t get to voice purely personal opinions, but rather, speaks for the administration.

"Yet, any ambassador cannot help but bring his or her own style and wording to the job.
We certainly saw that with Ambassador Daniel Patrick Moynihan, when he lambasted the U.N. General Assembly after passage of the infamous (and now revoked) 1975 “Zionism is Racism” Resolution 3379." . . .

"Given that the rhetoric from the anti-Israel boycott movement, including far-left regressive Jews, mirrors the “Zionism is Racism” resolution, it’s worth revisiting Moynihan’s words".

Does Maxine Waters consider Haley and Moynihan to be "scumbags" as well?

"Haley just had her Moynihan moment, though I suspect she’ll have many more before her tenure is over.

At her first press availability since becoming Ambassador, Haley lashed out at the blatant anti-Israel bias of the U.N. in general, and the Security Council in particular.
Here is her full
prepared statement. I was going to excerpt it, but it’s just too good (emphasis added):
