Dianne Feinstein Blasts Nikki Haley for Stopping UN Gaza Query

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D- Calif., said she was “deeply disappointed” in Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, for stopping the U.N. Security Council from investigating Israeli actions on the border with the Gaza Strip.

“I’m deeply disappointed in Ambassador Haley’s decision to block a U.N. inquiry into yesterday’s events,” Feinstein, who is Jewish, said Tuesday in a statement. “Without question there should be an independent investigation when the lives of so many are lost.”

Israeli troops killed some 60 Palestinians attempting to breach the fence between Gaza and Israel on Monday, the same day that the United States dedicated its new embassy in Jerusalem.

The protests at the fence have been held weekly for close to two months, but intensified on the day of the embassy opening, leading to condemnations worldwide of Israel and the United States.

Haley used the threat of the U.S. veto on the Security Council to block proposals for an inquiry and berated the council for even considering the issue.

“I ask my colleagues here in the Security Council, who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?” Haley said.

“No one would,” she said. “No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has. In fact, the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained.”

Haley said that those who blame the embassy opening for the Gaza violence are “sorely mistaken.”

“The violence comes from those who reject the existence of the state of Israel in any location,” she said. “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.”

Feinstein called on protesters to “remain peaceful,” but appeared to lay much of the blame on the embassy opening and what she suggested was a lack of restraint by Israel.

“While protests must remain peaceful, Israeli forces must exercise greater restraint in the use of live ammunition,” she said. “President Trump’s decision to move the U.S embassy was a serious mistake that will reverberate throughout the region. U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital should have been resolved in the context of broader peace negotiations where both sides benefit.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in a video posted on social media, also juxtaposed the embassy opening with the violence on the Gaza border. “The embassy move brought tensions to a boiling point,” the Sanders video said.

The video described the protests as “demanding an end to the ten-year blockade” Israel imposed on the Strip after a season of intensive rocket fire on Israel, “an end to the occupation, and the right to return to their former homes inside Israel.”

Sanders, who in 2016 challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, is the first Jewish candidate to win major-party nominating contests.

“Young American Jewish activists protested the embassy move,” the video said, running footage of an IfNotNow protest in Washington DC on Monday.

The video said that Sanders and another 12 Democratic senators, including Feinstein, have written to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urging him to take steps to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza.

  24. I have learned a few important things through your post. I’d also like to mention that there will be a situation in which you will obtain a loan and never need a cosigner such as a Fed Student Aid Loan. However, if you are getting credit through a regular creditor then you need to be willing to have a cosigner ready to enable you to. The lenders can base their own decision over a few variables but the most significant will be your credit worthiness. There are some lenders that will also look at your job history and make a decision based on that but in many cases it will depend on your rating.

  32. One other thing I would like to mention is that in place of trying to suit all your online degree classes on days of the week that you finish work (since the majority of people are worn out when they get home), try to find most of your lessons on the weekends and only a couple of courses in weekdays, even if it means a little time away from your saturday and sunday.

  36. Yet another thing to mention is that an online business administration program is designed for students to be able to efficiently proceed to bachelors degree programs. The Ninety credit college degree meets the lower bachelor diploma requirements so when you earn your current associate of arts in BA online, you should have access to the most recent technologies within this field. Several reasons why students would like to get their associate degree in business is because they may be interested in this area and want to obtain the general knowledge necessary in advance of jumping in to a bachelor college diploma program. Thx for the tips you really provide as part of your blog.
