She emphasized the need for the U.N.to have an exit plan in numerous regions where it has peacekeeping troops.

America's United Nations ambassador, Nikki Haley, meets with her Israeli counterpart, Danny Danon.

The U.N. General Assembly Hall, a hotbed of anti-Israel propaganda, was filled on Wednesday with over 2,000 diplomats and activists for a conference against the boycott, divestment and sanction (BDS) movement. Haley added that she's "working to change the culture" at the Security Council, which she compared to that of the SC legislature: Both, she said, are clubs and have rules and cultures that need to change. You're not going to take our number one democratic friend in the Middle East and beat up on them.

"My concern is, you are seeing a lot of love for the Iran deal in the Security Council, and that's unfortunate".

But he and Haley have repudiated the critical vote and he has appointed an ambassador to Israel - David Friedman - with a history of skepticism toward a two-state peace deal. "This is pure antisemitism and together with the USA, our greatest ally, we will keep fighting until BDS is eliminated".

During a question-and answer segment at the day's final session, a Jewish student representing J Street U, the campus arm of the dovish pro-Israel lobby, asked how students can best oppose BDS on campus while also opposing Israel's occupation of the West Bank.

Turkey's candidacy for membership in the European Union, meanwhile, has virtually collapsed. The Netherlands also became entangled in the row with Turkey .

"At the United Nations, what is the attitude about the enforcement of the Iran Deal and how to hold Iran accountable, most importantly how to hold Iran accountable for the deal and for the threats it's posing?"

"That doesn't mean he wasn't a nice man", she continued, adding "that doesn't mean he wasn't good to America".

"I wear high heels, it's not for a fashion statement, it's because if I see something wrong I will kick it every single time".

The U.S. and Israel see the moves as part of an effort to bypass direct negotiations between the two sides and have the worldwide community bestow an independent state on the Palestinians.

"So the first thing we do is, we call the secretary-general and say, 'This is absolutely ridiculous". Haley said the U.N.'s political mission in Afghanistan will soon be under "strategic review" because "no one has ever thought to check and see if we're actually achieving any goals". "And a ridiculous report, the Falk report, came out".
