U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is just about killing it at the global body.
In recent remarks to the General Assembly, Haley first condemned the anti-Israel faction of the bunch for using the global body for politics, not peace promotion. And then, dramatically enough, she brought to vote a U.S.-penned measure that explicitly faulted Hamas for violence at the Gaza border — a measure that was tacked on as an amendment to an anti-Israel resolution and that actually received the thumbs-up from the majority of the voting parties.

But what’s clear is this: Haley, who’s been rocking at the United Nations since day one, hasn’t slowed her pro-Israel bent a bit.
