U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the Israel American Council’s National Council 2017 this weekend in her keynote address that the 2015 JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) nuclear deal signed between Iran and the six world powers was “very very flawed.”
“The deal’s designed to be too big to fail, to keep critics quiet . . . This is a chance not to abandon the deal but to improve it,” she said. The ambassador pointed out that the United Nations is a “hostile place” for Israel, adding that the days of standing passively while Israel was bashed, were over.
However, she added, Israel knows it needs to stay at the United Nations to fight for democracy and human rights.

Haley said the U.S. will leave the UN Human Rights Council unless it goes through with reforms, starting with item seven — the permanent item mandating review on Israel’s “crimes” on the agenda.
In addition, Haley told the gathering at the annual Washington conference of the Israeli American Council the U.S. delegation is working to stop the UN Human Rights Council from publishing a boycott blacklist against companies doing business in or with communities in Judea, Samaria, Golan Heights and areas of Jerusalem built after 1967.
