Young Israel statement on Ambassador Haley’s resignation

October 9, 2018

The National Council of Young Israel (NCYI) today issued the following statement in the wake of the announcement that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is resigning from her position and will leave her post prior to the end of the year:

“During her tenure as the United States’ representative at the United Nations, Ambassador Nikki Haley has been a staunch supporter and fierce defender of the State of Israel. Amidst a climate where hostility towards Israel is rampant, Ambassador Haley’s resolve to publicly and persuasively underscore the inequities Israel faces at the UN and stand up for this important U.S. friend and ally on the world stage is extremely noteworthy. Her diplomatic efforts on behalf of the United States, coupled with her desire to shield Israel from unwarranted criticism, cemented her status as an envoy who epitomizes what public service is all about and as a diplomat who is unwavering in her desire to do what she knows to be right and just. We wish Ambassador Haley much success in her future endeavors and express our heartfelt gratitude for her incredible service to our country.”
