U.N. continues wearing blinders, ignores attacks on Israel

U.N. building in NYC (United Nations)A pro-Israel activist is praising U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley for vetoing an anti-Israel resolution by the U.N. Security Council.

The resolution was submitted by Kuwait, a non-permanent member of the Security Council, and called for "international protection" for the Palestinian people. It called on U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres to submit a report within 60 days on ways to ensure "the safety, protection and well-being of the Palestinian civilian population under Israeli occupation," including recommendations about "an international protection mechanism."

On Friday, Ambassador Haley blasted the Kuwaiti resolution, calling it "grossly one-sided" for not mentioning the Hamas terrorist group and describing it as "wildly inaccurate in its characterization of recent events in Gaza" by solely condemning Israel for the violence.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, finds the resolution unacceptable in light of the fact that Palestinians are "raining fire" down upon Israel.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)"Parts of the south are completely on fire because of these kite bombs and these petrol bombs that they're sending over in balloons and kites causing horrific destruction," she describes. "And yet the United Nations can only focus on Israel, who [in their eyes] is always guilty of everything when she [Israel] is only defending herself."

Markell contends that if Hillary Clinton had been elected president, "we would be seeing everything in absolute reverse" at the United Nations.

"[But] God had mercy. He gave us a little reprieve," she tells OneNewsNow. "And I think one of the reasons that the U.N. is as blind as it is, is because God's judgment is on them."

Haley also said the resolution makes it "completely clear that the U.N. is hopelessly biased against Israel."
