Haley Demands UN Withdraw Report Branding Israel 'Apartheid' State
A United Nations report co-authored by anti-Israel scholar Richard Falk on Wednesday accused the U.S. ally of being "guilty of the crime of apartheid" – triggering a furious response from the Trump administration, which demanded the U.N. "withdraw" the study.
America's U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley blasted the report as "anti-Israel propaganda" in a statement late Wednesday.
"The United States stands with our ally Israel and will continue to oppose biased and anti-Israel actions across the UN system and around the world," Haley said.
The report was commissioned by the U.N Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia. While apartheid originally was associated with South Africa, the report said Israel's policies today meet the definition of “an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination” by one racial group over another.
