nearvideo Israeli Amb. Danon: Haley was bold, brave and missing

The Israeli Ambassador to the U. N. Danny Danon, praised Nikki Haley and the Trump administration’s leadership on the world stage.

The Israeli Ambassador to the U. N. Danny Danon announced on Saturday that he remains at his post despite a pending domestic elections — a step, the Nauert probably a boost Heather, President Trump’s pick to be the next U.S. Ambassador.

Some Israeli media reported last week that Danon was standing down as Israel’s Ambassador to run in the party primaries before the elections in Israel in April, but Danon’s office called the reports false and said that he would announce his intentions after a vote in the Israeli Parliament — the Knesset.

On Saturday, he announced that he will continue in his role, and is therefore not in the forthcoming elections for the Knesset.


“The role of Israel’s Ambassador to the U. N. is a big responsibility, and I will continue to strengthen, the reputation of Israel in this difficult time,” he said in a statement.

It was Danon, a vocally pro-American force in New York, and has a combative approach to the representation of Israel at the U. N. In 2016 in a speech before the U. N. security Council, he ended up in a screaming match with a Palestinian representative Riyad Mansour.

“You have to pay the families of the terrorists, they glorify terrorists, shame on you, to do that,” he yelled to Mansour.

His time in the Turtle Bay time is largely equal to that of the outgoing US Ambassador Nikki Haley, with whom he has joined in aggressively combating anti-Israel bias at the U. N.

This month, after a US resolution condemning Hamas terrorist attacks failed in the General Assembly, Danon crack in those countries which voted against the resolution.

“You should be ashamed, wait until you have to deal with terrorism in their own countries,” he said of the chamber. “Your silence in the face of evil shows its true face.”

Both Haley and Danon to condemn the U. N. time and again, Israel, ignoring human rights violations and terrorist attacks by Palestinian militant groups accused. This led sometimes to decide Danon some unconventional tactics to draw attention to Israel’s fate.


In August, he opened an art exhibition in the corridors of the U. N. headquarters in New York to show the scenes of destruction caused by the flaming dragons, often bearing swastikas — Israeli land, and invited U. N. Ambassador, to see it for yourself.

“No one talks about it. This is what I feel, in the security Council and the General Assembly, so that we can understand to allow this exhibition here, Ambassador,” Danon told Fox News, adding that he asks, Ambassador, visit, what would you do if the 7000 acres to their home were set on fire, by terrorists.

“I ask you,” What would you do if this happens in your country?'”

Danon has also welcomed the tougher rules brought in by Haley, the U. N., After they announced their departure, he wrote an op-ed for Fox News, in which he Haley called, the “voice of moral clarity,” he said, “helped guide the U. N. in the direction of a more just tomorrow.”

To stay the decision for Danon, the U. N. is also a boost for Nauert is likely to Trump’s pick to succeed Haley. To nominate during Trump the decision, the State Department spokeswoman and former Fox News journalist, welcomes skepticism from Democrats and liberal media, as well as the silence of some ambassadors, Danon was the first one to welcome Nauert, in view of their pro-Israel stance.


“Ms. Nauert has stood by the state of Israel in their previous positions, and I have no doubt, to strengthen the cooperation between our two countries to continue as Ambassador to the U. N. have said,” Danon.

Nauert confirmation by the Senate, and a date for their hearings is still not yet been announced.

The U.S. mission to the U. N. was not commenting to be able to Danon, the decision in his post to remain because of the partial government shutdown in Washington, DC


Danon, meanwhile, is already implementing plans to push the current U. N. Ambassador, to embrace you, a pro-Israel stance. His office announced, to limit that in January, he leads a delegation of 40 U. N. Ambassador visit to Israel, including Israel’s North.
