US changing anti-Israel culture at UN, Haley says

US envoy to the United Nations Nikki Haley says recent steps taken at the UN are changing the culture of anti-Israel bias at the world body.

“We changed the Israel bias that’s happening at the United Nations by making sure we call out anyone that focuses on that as opposed to focusing on the conflicts,” Haley tells ABC News. “We made sure that a ridiculous report that came out comparing Israel to apartheid state — we had that report pulled down. The director resigned.”

“We are now changing the culture at the United Nations and with that we’re changing the culture in the world in the discussions that we’re having,” she says.

Haley has recently spearheaded a US boycott of the UN Human Rights Council for what the Trump administration says is an anti-Israel bias. Last week she told the annual AIPAC conference that the “days of Israel bashing are over” at the UN.
