Nikki Haley blames Iran, Hamas for deaths of Palestinian protesters, as UN officials call to investigate Israel

At an emergency meeting of the Security Council this morning, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley cast blame for the deaths of Palestinian protesters in Gaza yesterday on Hamas and Iran. 

Haley stated Iran had ramped up military activity in the region over the last week creating a “reckless provocation and escalation.” Iranian rockets fired from Syria into the Golan Heights and proxy militants striking Saudi Arabia, she said, “is an example of regional violence that should occupy our attention here in the Security Council,” adding, “In recent days, Hamas terrorists, backed by Iran, have incited attacks against Israeli security forces and infrastructure. That is violence that should occupy our attention, too.”

“The common thread in all of this is the destabilizing conduct of the Iranian regime – a regime that insists on promoting violence throughout the Middle East, while depriving its own people of basic human rights,” she continued.

On Hamas, Haley said the group “has attacked the Kerem Shalom crossing, the biggest entry point in Gaza for fuel, food, and medical supplies. This is how determined they are to make the lives of the Palestinian people miserable. They light Molotov cocktails attached to kites on fire and attempt to fly them into Israel to cause as much destruction as possible.”

Haley said the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem was not a factor in yesterday’s violence where 61 demonstrators were killed by Israeli forces including 8 minors, of whom youngest casualty was 8-month old Laila al-Ghandour, according to Gaza’s ministry of health.

“The United States’ action yesterday promoted the reality and the desire for peace,” she said.

Haley went on to describe, “Those who suggest that the Gaza violence has anything to do with the location of the American embassy are sorely mistaken. Rather, the violence comes from those who reject the existence of the state of Israel in any location. Such a motivation – the destruction of a United Nations Member State – is so illegitimate as to not be worth our time in the Security Council, other than the time it takes to denounce it,” Haley said.

In the same session Israel’s representative Danny Danon said the demonstrators were not civilians, “These were not demonstrations. They were violent riots. They planted explosive devices and rolled burning tires. They have sent flaming materials over the fence, igniting fires on our agricultural lands,” adding, “Everyone who claims the decision to move the US embassy is the reason,or the justification, for Palestinian violence should take another look at history. This is an excuse, not a reason for violence against Israel.”

Yet officials with the United Nations disagreed.

The UN Special Coordinator on Middle East Peace Nickolay Mladenov called for an investigation into Israel’s actions.

“Who can possibly find words to console the mother of a child that has been killed? Who?” adding, “I call on all to join me in condemning in the strongest possible terms the actions that have led to the loss of many lives in Gaza.”

The Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Rupert Colville later released a statement calling Israel’s actions in Gaza “appalling.”

“The rules on the use of force under international law have been repeated many times but appear to have been ignored again and again,” Colville said, “It seems anyone is liable to be shot dead or injured: women, children, press personnel, first responders, bystanders, and at almost any point up to 700m from the fence.”

Michael Lynk, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, today condemned Israeli soldiers on their use of force against the demonstrators.

“This blatant excessive use of force by Israel – an eye for an eyelash – must end,” Lynk said, further accusing Israel of committing a “war crime,”

“The killing of demonstrators in violation of these rules, and within the context of occupation, may amount to willful killing, a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention, as well as a war crime,” he said.

Yesterday Kuwait circulated a draft statement to members of the Security Council, which called for countries to keep their embassies in Tel Aviv and to launch an investigation into potential crimes by Israel over the killings in Gaza. The State Department told the AP, the U.S. blocked the initiative because it was “too one-sided.”

    The bottom line is that Iran is the only cohesive state left in the Middle East, with an ancient heritage and borders and an identity that were not designed by the French, British, Italians or Americans. Israel, America and its Saudi and Emarati puppets, and Europe – to an extent -resent this and want to destroy Iran out of spite, for no even vaguely logical or moral reason. If anyone has provoked conflict it is the US which has fought two huge and bloody wars in Iraq and Afghanistan – the two countries surround Iran – for two decades, and whose politicians routinely and openly call for “regime change” in Iran.
    Blaming Israel and America’s genocidal treatment of the Palestinians on Iran is absurd and shameful. Nikki Hayley will say anything for power and has never wandered anywhere near empathy or morality. I can tell that she wishes to be white desperately; she is truly a blight on all of us South Asian Americans!

    Meanwhile people in the region have cast their lot with the Iranians and against the American, Saudi and Israeli murderers – the recent elections in Lebanon and Iraq are proof of this, as is public opinion in Syria and Yemen. Netanyahu and many American hawks (on both sides!) have lobbied for war and regime change in Iran for decades. I fear that the government there was naive and unrealistically optimistic for not vigorously pursuing nuclear weapons before the Iran deal, and for hoping that the West would play by its own rules once they agreed to the deal. This choice might prove to be disastrous for Iran and the whole world. If the Americans do launch a war against Iran, I swear I will block traffic and make a huge scene in front of the UN Headquarters until I’m arrested.

        It’s hard to know whether the constant conflation by Zionists of Israel with all Jews and all Jews with Israel is:

        – an involuntary, anti-Semitic tic.

      • Misterioso on May 16, 2018, 3:53 pm


        “Gazans have shackled themselves to the terrorist monster named Hamas.”

        You mean the “terrorist monster named Hamas” attempting for years to achieve peace with Israel, but being rebuffed at every turn?

        On 16 June 2009, after meeting with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, Ismail Haniya, prime minister of Hamas’s Gaza Strip government, announced that “If there is a real plan to resolve the Palestinian question on the basis of the creation of a Palestinian state within the borders of June 4, 1967 [i.e. 22% of historic Palestine] and with full sovereignty, we are in favour of it.”…
        “‘We accept a Palestinian state on the borders of 1967, with Jerusalem as its capital, the release of Palestinian prisoners, and the resolution of the issue of refugees,’ Haniyeh said, referring to the year of Middle East war in which Israel captured East Jerusalem and the Palestinian territories. ” (Haaretz, December 1, 2010)

        In its revised Charter, April, 2017, Hamas again agreed to a Palestinian state based on the 4 June 1967 borders. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, Israel promptly rejected the Hamas overture instead of using it to open a dialogue.
        “Senior Hamas Official: ‘I Think We Can All Live Here in This Land – Muslims, Christians and Jews.’” By Nir Gontarz. March 28, 2018, Haaretz.

        As for Netanyahu and the Likud party, here’s a brief summation of their positions that are contrary to international law and explain why the conflict continues:
        The Likud Party Platform:
        a. “The Jordan river will be the permanent eastern border of the State of Israel.”
        b. “Jerusalem is the eternal, united capital of the State of Israel and only of Israel. The government will flatly reject Palestinian proposals to divide Jerusalem”
        c. “The Government of Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan river.”

    • Misterioso on May 16, 2018, 4:10 pm


      “It’s Israel’s fault that people are killed?”

      In a word, yes!! The entity known as “Israel” is the occupier and it has also designated 25% of the land along its border with Gaza as a “no go” zone, thereby denying Palestinians access to their best farm lands to grow much needed food. Palestinians, including children, that have ventured into the zone over the years have been shot dead. Furthermore, The IDF is armed to the teeth and as recent events attest, fully indoctrinated as fascists, they are eager to kill and wound defenseless Palestinians, including children, infants, duly attired reporters and doctors (a Canadian doctor was wounded in both legs.)

      At least 100 Palestinians have been killed and 2,700 wounded. IDF casualties dead and wounded: zero.

      • Jackdaw on May 17, 2018, 3:03 am

        For months, unarmed individuals or small groups have Gazans have tried to infiltrate Israel, mostly for benign reasons. These infiltrators were not ‘shot on sight’. That wasn’t the policy.

        A violent , coordinated attempt to invade Israel, en masse, is another thing.

        This Gaza border story will end eventually.

        Than what will you do to fill your empty lives?

      Israelis are currently euphoric but they have no idea of the risks that charlatans like Trump bring to geopolitics.

    • Boomer on May 16, 2018, 7:18 am

      re Nikki Haley at the UN

      As an American, it is distressing to hear her, Bolton, et al. The U.S. is indeed headed down the sewer. By the time the next President takes office, our standing in the world will be much diminished. As for Gandhi, I’m reminded that for decades I’ve heard pundits like Tom Friedman blame Palestinians for violence, lamenting their failure to use nonviolence. Such pundits ignored the obvious truth that Israel’s dispossession of Palestinians began with violence and Israel’s oppression continued regardless of tactics used by Palestinians. The situations and cultures and external contexts in colonial India and in Jim Crow America were different from each other, and from Palestine. In truth, Palestinians have mostly been nonviolent, perforce, and that has availed them nothing.

  5. Kaisa of Finland on May 15, 2018, 6:41 pm

    Well it might be that in the end, Trump just gave the Palestinians a present:

    Since yesterday Nakba (for the first time I recall) has been mentioned and explained in all of our main news and news channels, also in all of our main newspapers. It just was a bit too much to see that “plasticky” couple of Jared and Ivanka with their “plasticky” smiles celebrating with Netanyahu while people were shot dead elsewhere.

    Also from now on, U.S.A:s role in the conflict is clear to everyone.

    Next year there might be a big Eurovision songcontest in Jerusalem – atleast that is what Netta Barzilai said when she won this year – and the place will be full of journalists from all over the Europe, also lots of turists.. That will be an excellent possibility for all kinds of non-violent action to show to the Europe the circumstances the Palestinians are living in. (There is no way Israel could hide all of it..)

    • Boomer on May 16, 2018, 8:14 am

      re: Next year there might be a big Eurovision songcontest in Jerusalem –

      It’s telling that Israel is part of the Eurovision contest. If one looks at the map, Israel appears to be in Asia, but of course its dominant population is comprised of people from Europe (some by way of North America). The next step, I suppose, will be for Israel to join the EU. First, however, I guess the EU will need to adjust its laws regarding human rights to comport with Israel’s practices.

      • Kaisa of Finland on May 16, 2018, 11:56 am


        The Eurovision songcontest has nothing to do with EU: Also f.ex. Russia, Belarus, Azerbaijan and Australia are “in”.. Traditionally it was ment to be people/cultures meeting through music and no politics allowed.

      • amigo on May 16, 2018, 5:59 pm

        Kaisa , the IBA (Israel Broadcasting Authority” is part of the European Broadcasting Authority and that allowed them to be grandfathered in.

        Apparently this was the last year as the IBA is being disbanded shortly.However and unfortunately , as winners of the 2018 contest , they get to stay in one more year.

        Needless to say they will cry antisemitism and whinge and moan if they are excluded after next year.

        Fingers crossed.

  6. rhkroell on May 15, 2018, 9:11 pm

    Americans and their allies suffer from historical amnesia when they neglect to broach the topic of their conspicuous support of Hitler’s Germany — against the U.S.S.R.’s “red menace” — in the 1930s. In 1936 the Nazis transferred German troops to the Rhine River and militarized the Rhineland, supported Mussolini in the defeat and subjugation of Abyssinia/Ethiopia, and provided economic and military aid to Franco’s fascist dictatorship in Spain.

    When the Nazis annexed Austria in March 1938, the U.S.’s allies — Great Britain and France — used aircraft to race to Germany to sign the Munich Agreement on September 30, 1938. The champions of U.S. imperialism and their allies have belatedly blamed Britain’s Conservative Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, for signing the Munich Agreement. But at the time they surely must have realized that that agreement laid out a red carpet for Hitler to annex Czechoslovakia. Neville Chamberlain alone dictated appeasement to the fascists. Right!

    Also, one hears nary a murmur from the apologists of U.S. and European imperialism about the role of the Chancellor of Austria, Engelbert Dollfuß, and his role in suppressing the socialist movement in Austria in February 1934, nor how he guaranteed the rule of “Austrofascism” through his authoritarian First of May Constitution. Not to mention the fact that the Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) advanced the rationalization (at that time) that the establishment of the Dollfuss dictatorship was somehow “necessary” to maintain Austrian independence.

    Need I mention that before the German invasion Poland on September 1, 1939, the Polish government in Warsaw had tried to negotiate with Hitler a possible joint attack against the Soviet Union. The negotiations failed primarily because the Polish elite preferred instead to sign defense agreements with Britain and France. The apostles of western imperialism tend to misremember that Poland rejected an agreement of mutual defense — against Nazis — offered by the Soviet Union. Oops!

    U.S., British and French historians often overlook the fact that on July 23, 1939, the U.S.S.R. proposed to negotiate with Britain and France a plan of defense in case of a German attack. But the western allies had another scheme in mind: to have Great Britain secretly negotiate a non-aggression pact with Hitler’s representatives in London. While the Soviet Union was proposing to the European states an anti-fascist front, the British government was secretly negotiating with the Nazis.

    U.S., British and French historians often neglect to mention the fact that from 1933-1939 the western allies were formulating military strategies to defeat the U.S.S.R. Their enemy resided in Moscow not Berlin.

    IDF Soldier Recounts Harrowing, Heroic War Story Of Killing 8-Month-Old Child

    •SEE MORE: World

    JERUSALEM—Describing the terrifying yet valiant experience to his fellow battalion members, Israel Defense Forces soldier Yossi Saadon recounted Tuesday his harrowing, heroic war story of killing an 8-month-old Palestinian child during a violent attack against protesters. “It was a heart-pounding experience—there was smoke and gunfire all around me, and I made a split-second decision to hurl that canister of tear gas at the encroaching infant cradled in her father’s arms,” said Saadon to the group of awed soldiers, describing the chills that went up and down his spine as he realized that all he had was his M16 assault rifle and some tear gas to defend himself against the unarmed Palestinian family standing only dozens of yards away. “I could see the whites of the baby’s eyes and hear her terrifying cries, and I knew it was either her or me. And this wasn’t some newborn infant, you know? This was a baby who could probably sit up independently. I was scared, but I acted quickly to throw that tear gas at her and her older sister. And who knows how many lives I saved when I shot the women trying to help her?” At press time, Saadon’s battalion commander informed him that he was submitting his name for the Medal of Valor, the IDF’s highest honor.

    •SEE MORE: Benjamin Netanyahu

    JERUSALEM—Wiping away a tear as he confirmed the public’s worst fears, Israel prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu officially declared a nationwide day of mourning Tuesday for a section of security fence damaged in yesterday’s conflict at the Gaza border. “We must all come together and take the time to grieve for this poor, innocent length of fence,” said Netanyahu, who throughout his reportedly stirring eulogy shared several images of the youthful barrier, which was first erected between Israel and the Gaza Strip in 1994. “Let us never forget what happened to this beautiful razor wire–topped barricade, which still had so much life ahead of it. As we lower our flags to half-mast, I encourage all Israelis to take a few moments to consider the great sacrifices made by our many brave fabricated enclosures.” Sources confirmed Netanyahu concluded the solemn ceremony with a 21-gun salute fired directly into a group of Palestinian protesters.

    Nikki Haley is reported to have her sights set on running for president so of course she is laying the groundwork to attract wealthy Jewish donars read Addelson. The money she receives will be blood money earned by publicly blaming Palestinians for Israel’s slaughter of unarmed civilians but hey what’s new people have sold their souls throughout history in return for a shot at power and Haley’s just another willing to do the same.

    These people would be incompetent gangsters, i suppose is life easy when you speak only in the language of sanctions, assassinations and war..know no restraint or law.

    America should stop listening to those voices in its head, unless it is enamoured of Gander Sauce.

    when you kill us it isn’t blood you spill its just the iron that is in our souls.

    things are about to get really really difficult, it doesn’t matter anymore who is to blame

    no point in harbouring fear, you can’t hear us speak so like in space you can’t hear us scream,

    so fear for is pointless for us, like Winston sings Fear, my life start and is ending in colonial wars in all the same places, you have to choose you know not just wring your hands and regret it all we can’t stop and I know to whom I offer my whole hearted support.

    Helly Nicky Haley,

    How can you, as the par excellence Israel’s constant defender, lie, accuse, and especially defend the Israeli imprisonment and murdering of Palestinians by the thousands … and come to the UN and the whole world therefore claiming Israel as the only worthy victim on this lonely inhabited planet?

    One day the whole truth will be known worldwide, and the treatment the Nazis got might be seen as reasonable compared to the treatment the ZioNazis will get. Unfortunately many Jews who are not agreeing with Zionists might then have a hard time pleading their innocence and their past total disagreement with Israel…

    As for you, no pleading will do. It will be very interesting seeing you worming on your World Court of Justice accused bench.

    Can`t make reference to ashes – would be accused of Anti – Semitism.

    Anyone would be hard pressed to find a more pathetic example of someone in denial and totally detached from reality as Nikki Haley is in this situation. But, of course, I forgot that would be easy to do by merely consulting any media source in Israel.

    Nikki Haley seems to have political ambitions, and it seems an eye on the White House.

    So she is working hard to impress the mothership. That is where she will have go first, to get the financial support, media support, and her blessings from.

    The ever-excellent Juan Cole had this to say about Haley today:

      Wow Nikki has some issues. Too bad she’s discovered in true red, white and blue/blue and white fashion that there’s always someone else to be superior too, just follow your white leader, who’ll never let you in the club anyway you silly, stupid, confused woman.

    Methinks the Bouffant Buffoon will be increasingly worried by Haleys high profile. Probably next for the axe on DT`s never ending list?
