A UN bloc of 135 countries, 80% of the world’s population, has chosen Palestine as its next leader. The US and Israel object. To Palestine, it is part of the road to statehood.

Nikki Haley yet again stands nearly alone against world opinion: the UN resolution condemning Israel passed, amendment condemning Hamas failed to pass.
The US is in a toxic relationship that has made us indifferent on our best days, complicit in murder on our worst. Our mainstream media and our government join with Israel in bloodguilt.
Newly appointed National Security Advisor John Bolton is expected to lead the rest of Trump’s hawkish team into war. It’s just a matter of time, according to Philip Giraldi, before the US will be fighting a war in which it has no actual stake for an ally with which we have no defense agreement.
Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Colin Powell, recalls his work to invent a case for “pre-emptive” war against Iraq. It worked like a charm – ultimately at a high cost in lives, financially, and in destabilization of the whole region. Wilkerson argues that Nikki Haley and the Trump administration are doing the same thing today, only with even weaker evidence. The result could be “10 to 15 times worse than the Iraq war in terms of casualties and costs.”
What if the US Ambassador to the UN had a party for all of America’s true friends? The room might be pretty empty.
When Israel says “jump,” the US says “how high?” It’s time to stop letting the bully and its cohorts call the shots. America needs to know the truth.
None of these positions taken by Haley is an actual American interest, but they all involve Israeli preferences. I’D like to know how frequently she meets alone with Israeli officials and, most particularly, intelligence officers. Is she taking direction from the Israeli government? Is she an Israeli agent of influence or just a gullible fool? The American public, which pays her, and has to bear the consequences of her actions need to know…
Here’s what we were all thinking as we watched Nikki Haley’s UN speech!
Tom Cotton, expected to become CIA director, is owned by the Israel Lobby. In 2014 he received $1 million from the Emergency Committee for Israel and additional money from the Republican Jewish Coalition… Foundation for Defense of Democracies is neocon central… expect the neocons to initiate armed conflict…
Israel has desperately sought to be legitimized by the UN, while it has done its utmost to de-legitimize the UN. Now it wants a Security Council seat.
