Nikki Haley ‘More Israeli Than the Israelis,’ Says Palestinian U.N. Ambassador

The Palestinian Authority’s ambassador to the UN said on Wednesday that the Trump administration was pro-Israel and that US Ambassador Nikki Haley “is becoming more Israeli than the Israelis themselves.”

Mansour cited Haley’s accusations against Arab and Islamic countries, saying this was “for the sake of promoting an unconditional defense of Israel” but “not in the interest of the United States, much more in the interest of Israel.”

He was referring to Haley’s speech to the UN Security Council Tuesday in which she accused Arab and Islamic nations of being generous with their words in support of the Palestinians but not with their wallets.

He also mentioned a failed US and Israeli effort Tuesday to amend a resolution on “the social and economic consequences of the Israeli occupation” to call for Hamas, which rules Gaza, to release two Israeli civilians and the bodies of two Israeli soldiers.

Mansour cited the Americans’ drastic cuts in funding for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees known as UNRWA. This year, the US cut some $300 million to UNRWA, leaving the agency in dire financial straits, and is now reviewing some $200 million in assistance for the Palestinians.
