UN Ambassador Haley Lectures Palestinians: “Arab Leaders Should Have Told You the Truth”

Arab leaders have done a great disservice to the Palestinian people for years because they shielded them from learning the stark realities of life, instead paying lip service but failing to provide the tangible monetary support they needed, according to American United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley. “Arab leaders are afraid to tell [the Palestinians] the truth,” she told the United Nations Security Council, admonishing that spreading vitriol against Israel is not a substitute for the kind of support Palestinians need. Mixing no words in her brief address, Haley broadsided the Arab world with her assessment that “Talk is cheap [but] no group of nations is more generous with their words than the nations who are neighbors to the Palestinians.” The ambassador reminded the Council that Hamas is a terrorist organization, suggesting that too many UN members have forgotten that fact. “It’s responsible for holding the Gaza Strip hostage,” she said.
