Haley: Gaza violence not over embassy location, “comes from those who reject existence of Israel in any location”

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley strongly defended Israel Tuesday in the face of international criticism of its response to violent demonstrations at the Gaza border, saying no other country in the chamber would act with more restraint than the Jewish state….

She also noted the report on Hamas falsely claiming to their people that Israeli soldiers were abandoning places along the fence, when in fact they were reinforcing them.

“This is how determined they are to make the lives of the Palestinian people miserable,” she said. “They light Molotov cocktails, attached to kites on fire, and attempt to fly them into Israel to cause as much destruction as possible.”

Make no mistake, she said, “Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday.”

“I ask my colleagues here in the Security Council, who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?” Haley asked. “No one would. No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has. In fact, the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained.”
