United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley strongly rebuked a Palestinian diplomat, saying, “I will not shut up.”


“In the last year, the United States has worked to repair that damage. At the UN, I have opposed the bias against Israel, as any ally should do,” Haley said. (RELATED: Nikki Haley Nukes The Grammys After ‘Fire And Fury’ Reading)

“But that does not mean I or our administration is against the Palestinian people. Just the opposite is true. We recognize the suffering of the Palestinian people, as I have recognized here today. I sit here today offering the outstretched hand of the United States to the Palestinian people in the cause of peace.” (RELATED: WATCH: ‘We Will Remember’ — Nikki Haley Flexes Hard During U.N.

“We are fully prepared to look to a future of prosperity and co-existence. We welcome you as the leader of the Palestinian people here today. But I will decline the advice I was recently given by your top negotiator, Saeb Erekat. I will not shut up. Rather, I will respectfully speak some hard truths.”

Her critics definitely won’t like that.
