EFFECTING CHANGE AT THE UNITED NATIONS

Haley’s moral clarity in standing strong against the lies and injustices directed toward Israel reminds me of an experience that I encountered 17 years ago.
American United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley’s recent defense of Israel at the UN comes as a breath of fresh air for most Israelis, who for years have been subjected to a twisted and inaccurate understanding of our country and people, created by the international world body.
Today there are more UN resolutions against Israel – 62 – than against all other countries combined.
There are currently only two resolutions critical of Syria, a country whose own government bears responsibility for a genocidal five-year civil war in which over half a million people have been killed and over 1.2 million displaced.
On a personal level, Haley’s moral clarity in standing strong against the lies and injustices directed toward Israel reminds me of an experience that I, as a young student, encountered 17 years ago, as I experienced a UN gathering for the first time.
