President Trump and his administration have made is very clear where they stand on the subject of America’s greatest ally, Israel.
In a decision that caused reverberations throughout the modern world, President Trump announced that the United States will begin the process of moving their Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move that is considered controversial by the droves of anti-semites who oppose a Jewish state in the middle east.
Israel’s allies have long maintained that Jerusalem is the rightful capital of Israel, something that Palestinians and non-Christians alike have long denied. By interjecting the clout of the American government into the conversation, the U.S. has not only bolstered their relationship with their most loyal of allies, but President Trump has drawn a line in the sand over which the anti-Jewish cabals of the middle east won’t dare cross.
The controversial move hasn’t been universally accepted, however, with some nations reticent to put their name behind such a bold maneuver. U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has a few choice words for those indecisive countries.
“The Times of Israel reports: United States Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the US will be ‘taking names’ of countries that support a draft resolution rejecting President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, set for a General Assembly vote Thursday.
“Turkey and Yemen requested the urgent meeting of the 193-nation forum on behalf of the Arab group of countries and the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) after the US vetoed the measure in the Security Council. The two countries circulated a draft resolution that mirrors the vetoed measure, reaffirming that any decision on the status of Jerusalem has no legal effect and must be rescinded.”
This revelation comes just a day after Haley made headlines for a similarly stern statement on the situation in which the ambassador let the United Nations know that America will “not be told” what it can and cannot do with its embassies.
Long time observers of the Jewish saga in the middle east will likely see Haley’s tough-as-nails attitude on the subject as a much needed revelation that could turn the tide in the embattled region. A nation with the clout of the United States finally standing up to the horrific hatred and anti-semitism of the region will surely have some thinking twice about future anti-Israeli actions.
