U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday for indulging in “outrageous and discredited conspiracy theories” regarding Israel.Image result for nikki haley us ambassador

Delivering her remarks at a U.N. Security Council meeting, Haley slammed Abbas for a speech he gave earlier this month, in which the Palestinian leader strongly criticized both Israel and the United States.

In that speech, Abbas said he did not want the U.S. to lead peace talks between Israel and Palestine. He also called the peace plan that the Trump administration is currently working on a “slap in the face,” Fox News reported.

But Abbas wasn’t done. In his two-hour-long address, he referenced events from centuries ago in an attempt to indicate that the Jewish state is nothing more than a “colonial enterprise that has nothing to do with Jewishness.”

“The Jews were used as a tool under the concept of the promised land — call if whatever you want. Everything has been made up,” he added, according to The New York Times.

Haley was having none of it. Responding to Abbas’ “outrageous and discredited” ideas, she suggested that he does not have “courage” or “will” to seek a lasting peace.

“He rejected any American role in peace talks. He insulted the American president. He called for suspending recognition of Israel,” Haley said. 

“He invoked an ugly and fictional past, reaching back to the 17th century to paint Israel as a colonialist project engineered by European powers.” 

A speech that indulges in outrageous and discredited conspiracy theories is not the speech of a person with the courage and will to seek real peace.”

Haley also contrasted Abbas to former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, who traveled to Israel in 1977 — a visit that eventually helped facilitate peace between Egypt and Israel. The U.N. ambassador referred to Sadat as someone who was “willing to step forward, acknowledge hard truths and make compromises.”

“Where is the Palestinian Anwar Sadat?” she asked.

While emphasizing that the U.S. is “eager” for a peace deal to be reached between Israel and Palestine, she warned that America “will not chase after a Palestinian leadership that lacks what’s needed to achieve peace.” 

Haley’s remarks on Israel came the same day President Donald Trump said the U.S. might withhold aid for Palestine unless they “sit down and negotiate peace.”

“When they disrespected us a week ago by not allowing our great vice president to see them and we give them hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and support — tremendous numbers, numbers that nobody understands — that money is on the table,” Trump said from Davos, Switzerland, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by his side.

“And that money’s not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace.

African-American Leader Destroys the ‘Palestinian Myth,’ Proves Jerusalem belongs to the Jews


Reported By Onan Coca December 19, 2017

Bishop Aubrey Shines tends to make liberals very upset. Why? Because he refuses to side with them simply because society expects him to. When he disagrees with Democrat policies, plans, or ideas, he loudly explains why they are wrong and why they are wrong for the black community.

During the 2016 presidential election, Bishop Shines saw through Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, and realized that Donald Trump offered him and his community the best opportunity for growth and prosperity. This led Shines to support Trump, drawing the ire of the majority Democrat black community in America, but thus far, Trump’s policies have proven Shines right.

By most economic measures minority Americans, particularly blacks and hispanics, are already faring far better than they did during any point in the Obama era. (See here and here for the mathematical proof.)

However, Bishop Shines latest commentary isn’t drawing the ire of the left for siding with Trump when it comes to the black community, no this time he’s got liberals mad because he’s siding with Israel.

In a recent video, Bishop Shines blows up the “Palestinian Myth,” and explains why the Jews are the true owners of the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.

A partial transcript from Breitbart:

“You may be wondering where did this two-state solution idea originate from? And why hasn’t it been implemented.

Briefly, in 1936 British leaders formed a commission that felt the best way to protect the Jews that were constantly being harassed by the Arab people, was to divide the land into two states, giving over 80% to the Arabs and the small 20% to the Jews. Jews accepted, the Arabs declined. In 1947 the U.N tried the same scenario, again, the Arab countries declined.

Arab nations began intensifying their efforts by attacking the small Israeli nation, but to no avail. In 1967 the leaders of the Arab nations met and unanimously decided they would never accept Israel under no condition other than their dead bodies rotting in the streets.

So, in 1967, the Jordanians (not the so-called Palestinians), along with its Arab neighbors, invaded Israel once again in the hopes that they would wipe out the remaining Jewish presence. Israel won that war and kicked out the Jordanians from the land they had illegally occupied almost two decades prior known as the West Bank.”

This land has nothing to do with a Palestinian people; it was illegally part of Jordan for 18 years. 80% of the so-called Palestinians are Jordanian Arabs. Hence, there already is a ‘Palestinian state’ it happens to be called Jordan. Even in the year 2000 current president of Mahood Abbas was offered an additional 10% of the land for peace, of course he declined.

In 2005 the Jewish people gave the Gaza area away hoping peace would result in the gesture, instead the land has been used to attack the Jews by sending thousands of rockets into the communities that are only a few miles away, can you imagine sending your kids to school in the mornings or kissing someone you love before he or she goes to the office only to hear air sirens blaring in the streets or your office where you’re working?

The fear that would grip your heart knowing you may never see your children or your love one’s ever again?

Dividing your God given land by appeasing those that hate you, as well as, that desire to totally annihilate you hasn’t been nor will ever be the best solution. Thank you President DJT for having the resiliency and tenacity to do what a dozen other presidents promised to do but lacked the courage to do.”

 

Nobody Realized Trump Made Jerusalem Decision Exactly 1 Year After Obama Gave Holy Sites to Islam


Reported By Martin Walsh | December 10, 2017 at 8:50am

President Donald Trump’s historic announcement on Jerusalem last week is even more special when Americans remember how former President Barack Obama stabbed Israel in the back this time last year.

In 2011, Obama began taking part in further escalating the tensions between the Israeli’s and Palestinian’s by siding with Islamic terrorists over our strongest allies in the Middle East.

As noted by the Tea Party, Obama’s plans included Israel giving up large swaths of its land, including many holy sites, and the Arabs making “good faith” promises that they never kept.

Obama urged Israel to give the terrorist-supporting Palestinians half of Jerusalem, Old Jerusalem, Temple Mount, the Western Wall, and the Via Dolorosa.

Most notably, Via Dolorosa is the street in the Old City of Jerusalem that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion.

Obama’s degradation of the U.S.-Israel relationship came to a head on Dec. 23 last year, when he used a United Nations Security Council resolution to effectively sign over the holiest sites in Judaism and Christendom to radical Muslim groups. The Obama administration even played a major role in writing the United Nations Security Counsel draft that put the move into action.

A year after Obama’s treacherous move, Trump made history Wednesday by announcing that the U.S. would be moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Trump said the U.S. will officially recognize Jerusalem and the capital of Israel, a bold move former presidents only talked about doing but never had the guts to do.

Moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem shows that Trump is taking steps to bolster the United States’ already strong relationship with the Jewish state.

Obama’s self-defeating policy toward Israel for years proved he was a blundering amateur who refused to see how his decisions to disrespect Israel and take their holy land ruined the prospects for peace and further inflamed tensions in the region.

Israel has learned that it now has a true friend in the White House, and this historic move by Trump solidifies Israel’s position as owner and ruler of the holy city.

After years of Obama supporting nations that fund terrorists groups across the Middle East, Trump has made it clear that the U.S. stands with Israel.

The rest of the world is learning that, too.

America One Step Closer to Defunding Palestinian Terrorists


Reported By Elliot Friedland | Sunday, November 19, 2017

Taylor Force was an American army veteran who was killed by a Palestinian terrorist while on a university trip in Israel.

The House Foreign Affairs Committee has just approved a bill called the Taylor Force Act which would strip U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority until it changes its policies on supporting terrorism.

What Is the Taylor Force Act?

Taylor Force was a U.S. veteran killed by a Palestinian terrorist while on a university trip in Israel. An officer who had served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Force was stabbed in Tel Aviv in March 2016. His killer was shot and killed at the scene.

The Palestinian Authority is paying a salary to the family of the terrorist who killed Force, as it does to the families of all terrorists killed in action by Israeli forces. Terrorists who are not killed or who are imprisoned receive salaries directly. The longer they are in prison the more money is awarded. Palestinian leaders have long defended these payouts.

“It is the right of all of the prisoners and martyrs who have struggled and sacrificed for Palestine to receive their full salaries from the PA,” Hassan Abd Rabbo, spokesman for the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs has said.

Such payouts make up a significant portion of the Palestinian Authority budget. In 2017, the Palestinian Authority took in an estimated $693 million from international donors, but allocated nearly $345 to pay terrorists and their families.  

According to the official congressional website, the Taylor Force Act will halt U.S. payments to the Palestinian Authority until that body:

  • is taking steps to end acts of violence against U.S. and Israeli citizens perpetrated by individuals under its jurisdictional control, such as the March 2016 attack that killed former Army officer Taylor Force;
  • is publicly condemning such acts of violence and is investigating, or cooperating in investigations of, such acts; and
  • has terminated payments for acts of terrorism against U.S. and Israeli citizens to any individual who has been convicted and imprisoned for such acts, to any individual who died committing such acts, and to family members of such an individual.

Although the Palestinian Authority is technically a secular nationalist organization in direct opposition to radical Islam, Palestinian leaders have long used Islamist rhetoric to incite the population to carry out acts of terror against Israel. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in 2015 slammed Jewish access to the Temple Mount saying, “Al-Aksa is ours and so is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. They have no right to desecrate them with their filthy feet. We won’t allow them to do so and we will do whatever we can to defend Jerusalem.”

Who Supports the Bill?

The bill enjoys bipartisan support despite being drafted by Republicans. The Senate bill was sponsored by Senator Lindsey Graham. Democrats were persuaded to support the bill after concerns that the U.S. would continue to provide direct humanitarian aid, such as paying for water, were addressed. It is predicted to pass and become law.

“With this legislation, we are forcing the PA to choose between U.S. assistance and these morally reprehensible policies, and I am pleased to see this measure move forward in both chambers with so much support,” committee chairman Ed Royce (R-California).

The bill is also supported by a network of pro-Israel think tanks and political organizations.

Passing the act “will mark a vital step in the larger fight against terror, improve the lives of Israelis and Palestinians, and defend our values,” Dr. Michael Makovsky, president and CEO of the Jewish Institute for National Security of America, wrote in The Hill.

How is the Bill Progressing?

The House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee passed the bill unanimously on Wednesday. The bill will now come before the House of Representatives for a floor vote. Parallel legislation has been introduced in the Senate and will have to pass both houses to become law. The Senate’s version of the Taylor Force Act passed the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee in August.

The Taylor Force Act passed the committee alongside two other bills targeting Palestinian terrorism. One, the Hamas Human Shields Prevention Act, will impose sanctions on Hamas for its use of human shields. The other, the Palestinian International Terrorism Support Prevention Act, imposes sanctions on foreign persons, agencies and governments that assist Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad or any of their affiliates.

PATRIOTS: Should The U.S. WITHDRAW From UN Human Rights Council Because Of THIS?!


URL of the original posting site: http://clashdaily.com/2017/06/patriots-u-s-withdraw-un-human-rights-council/

Is the UN ‘Human Rights Council’ a big joke? Read on and find out…

Our new UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, has made it pretty clear that she’s disgusted with the bias against Israel and the failure of the alleged ‘Human Rights Council’ to battle actual human rights abuses.

After the sham of the last meeting, the United States is now considering withdrawing from the anti-Israel Human Rights Council.

Highlighting what it deemed a ‘biased’ stance on Israel, UN ambassador Nikki Haley said the US was ‘looking carefully’ at its role on the Human Rights Council (UNHRC).

‘The United States is looking carefully at this Council and our participation in it,’ Haley told the Geneva forum in her first address. ‘We see some areas for significant strengthening.’

She said it was ‘hard to accept’ five resolutions had been passed against Israel, a US ally, while none were considered against Venezuela, which is in the grips of bloody protests over the rule of its president Nicolas Maduro.

She called on the Council to address serious human rights violations in Venezuela and for President Maduro’s government to give up its seat in the 47-member UN body unless it gets its ‘house in order’.

It came as the UN’s top human rights official Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein called on Israel to pull out of Palestinian territories captured in 1967.

This is par for the course at the UNHRC.

(Aside: Is it just me, or should you just simply not trust anything with the initials ‘HRC’… Amirite?)

The UNHRC continually attacks Israel for existing, siding with terrorists, and completely ignoring human rights abuses by socialists.

She called on the Council to adopt ‘the strongest possible resolutions on the critical human rights situations in Syria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Belarus and Ukraine’.

Haley went on to say it should ‘follow up’ to prevent further human rights violations and abuses in those countries.

Haley described the UNHCR as ‘so corrupt’ weeks after becoming Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations.

This thing is a joke. As demonstrated by Saudi Arabia — a country with tons of human rights abuses and funders of terror — was re-elected to the council last year. Saudi Arabia, with their atrocious record of women’s rights, was also elected to the United Nations Women’s Rights Commission. This just shows you that the United Nations is a joke.

This is asinine. Why the hell are we still a part of this thing?

I agree with Krauthammer.

Don’t even hold these sham meetings on American soil. Especially not in Manhattan. Turn the damned thing into Condos and make them meet in Bhubaneswar, or Caracas, or Mogadishu, or some other God-forsaken hellhole with no international airport — like Ottawa, Candanistan.

President Trump had denounced the UN as a ‘club for people to have a good time’, so take away the good time and the ones serious about these issues will stay to make a difference. Otherwise, it’s just a lot of noise that’s costing us a whole lot of money. And some pretty prime real estate.

You know what I think.

What do YOU think?

Do we need to withdraw from the UNHRC because of their anti-Semitism?
