Nikki Haley Slams BDS Movement: It Has No Connection to ‘Justice’
Nikki Haley Slams BDS Movement at UN: It Is Rooted in ‘Ancient Hatred,’ Has No Connection to ‘Justice’ (The Washington Free Beacon)
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley lambasted the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel on Wednesday during her keynote speech at the second annual "Ambassadors Against BDS" event in the U.N. Security Council.
BDS is a Palestinian-led movement to wage economic war on Israel in an attempt to delegitimize the Jewish state. Supporters argue it is an effort to push back against an Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands.
Haley, who was the first governor to sign legislation to combat the BDS movement, has been an outspoken supporter of Israel in her brief time as ambassador to the U.N. and was a crowd favorite Monday when she spoke at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's annual policy conference.
