via Haley to AIPAC: Our push to end UN bias on Israel is really ‘a demand for peace’ | The Times of Israel

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration’s insistence on fair treatment for Israel at the UN is “actually a demand for peace,” the US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley told the AIPAC Policy Conference here on Monday in a speech met with thunderous applause and frequent standing ovations.

The UN’s bias against Israel, she said, has undermined peace by encouraging an illusion that Israel will simply go away. But Israel, she stressed, “is not going away,” and “when the world recognizes that, peace becomes possible” because the sides will then “be dealing with realities not fantasies” and then “reasonable compromises can prevail over absolutist demands.”
