He told Ambassador Haley: “I am speaking as a former Israeli ambassador to the UN, and I have the podium each year, so each year I come and say what I have to say about the UN. But I said yesterday that the hall still permeates with the stench of anti-Israel and antisemitic resolutions, which are the same. And I want to thank you for clearing the air out of that hall.

You’ve been doing, with President Trump and your activities, you’ve been doing wonderful things – I mean UNESCO, on UNRWA, on anti-Israel resolutions, on resolutions condemning Hamas, can you imagine that?

You obviously have both the energy and the motivation and the spirit and I want to thank you. You can see how appreciative the people of Israel are and the many friends of Israel are around the world, we appreciate and I want to thank you.

I think for many people, the story of Israel is a parable. It’s a courageous democracy, that is fighting against forces that threaten our civilization, our freedom, our values and a lot of people see through it but in the UN somebody has to say it and you’ve been saying it so I want to thank you.”
