    (AFP) — UNITED NATIONS — The US Ambassador to the United Nations called on the international community to speak out on the unfolding protests in Iran, saying the US would seek emergency UN talks on the situation. “The people of Iran are crying out for freedom,” Nikki Haley said at a news conference. “All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause.” She said the United States would be seeking emergency sessions of the UN Security Council and the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Commission in the coming days. Haley rejected as “complete nonsense” charges by Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei...

    In 2012 a Chicago Summit was held with the heads of state and heads of government of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This was the first time ever that a NATO summit was held in the United States outside of the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. The event was originally scheduled to coincide and be held after the 2012 G8 summit in Chicago as well, but the G8 summit was later rescheduled to be held at Camp David. As far as I know no one was becoming suspicious at that time of the UN and its special relationship with Chicago. I...

    South Korea announced Sunday that it has seized another ship suspected of violating U.N. sanctions by selling oil to North Korea at sea – this time a Panama-flagged one. The announcement Sunday came just days after South Korea said it is holding the crew of a Hong Kong-flagged ship that allegedly handed over oil to a North Korean vessel in October. The 5,100-ton ship, named the KOTI, is being held in the western port of Pyeongtaek-Dangjin, maritime officials told Yonhap News Agency on Sunday. One official said the vessel has been blocked from departing the port since Dec. 21. The...

    The crew of a Hong Kong-flagged ship that allegedly violated U.N. sanctions by transferring oil to a North Korean vessel in October is being held in South Korea until a full inspection is sent to the Security Council, officials announced Friday. The Lighthouse Winmore is believed to have transferred about 600 tons of refined petroleum products to the North Korean ship, the Sam Jong 2, in international waters in the East China Sea on Oct. 19, after leaving the South Korean port of Yeosu, a South Korean Foreign Ministry official told the Associated Press. The announcement came on the same...

    Iran declared Jerusalem the "capital of Palestine" on Wednesday following a parliamentary vote, according to the country's semi-official Fars news agency. Iran's announcement to recognize the holy city as the “Palestinian capital forever” comes in direct response to President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. “It comes in response to the recent U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in hopes of dealing a blow to Muslims,” said Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, according to Turkey's Anadolu news agency.

    It’s about time that Americans stop paying so much to subsidize the dysfunctional UNRWA, especially while the Palestinians turn around and threaten to use their “weapons in the UN” against the United States The United States currently pays a mandated assessment of 22% of the United Nations’ “regular” budget and about 28.5% of its peacekeeping budget. Together, the mandated assessments the U.S. pays add up to over $3 billion annually. Moreover, the U.S. has contributed billions of dollars in voluntary donations to various UN agencies and programs, such as the UN Development Program (UNDP), UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the...

    As the UN General Assembly voted to reject America’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, US Ambassador Nikki Haley issued a stern warning: We’ll remember this the next time you come calling for more hard-earned American taxpayer dollars. Most nation-states called her bluff, leaving many to wonder what comes next. If President Trump wants to use his financial leverage at the United Nations to strike at the heart of the anti-America, anti-Israel institutional infrastructure, he should look no further than the agency responsible for Palestinian refugees: the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. By most definitions, refugees are...

    It’s Christmas and we’ve just got word about one of the best-ever Christmas gifts a patriot could ever wish for: the US ambassador at the UN Nikki Haley just announced that she negotiated a $285 million cut in United Nations’ “bloated budget”. That’s a big chunk of taxpayers dollars that will not be wasted on that globalist institution next year. Nikki Haley made the announcement on Sunday and she was quoted as saying: “The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known. We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or...

    The White House has decided to quietly withdraw from all its ties with the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority and Mahmoud Abbas. DEBKAfile’s exclusive sources report that the Trump administration has resolved to scrap all ties with the Palestinian leadership in retaliation for its campaign against US President Donald Trump and his Jerusalem policy. Several warnings to Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) of what was in store if he did not desist from castigating the US president fell on death ears. Last week, two Arab crown princes, Saudi Muhammed bin Salman and UAE Sheikh Muhammed bin Zayed, summoned Abbas to their capitals and...

    First, the United Nations Security Council voted 14-1 to rebuke the United States for its decision to move the US Embassy to Israel's capital in Jerusalem. Later, the UN General Assembly voted 128-9 to condemn the US decision. Voting with the US were Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, and Togo. Major US allies like Britain, France, Germany and Japan voted against the US. German Chancellor Angela Merkel explained that "seventy-five years ago Britain, France, Russia, and the United States ganged up on Germany. Now the shoe is on the other foot. Let's see how Mr. Trump likes...

    Nikki Haley If you trust the major headlines, the big news out of the United Nations is that the UN General Assembly just voted overwhelmingly to reprimand the U.S. over President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. " U.N. Vote Rebukes U.S. for Jerusalem Move," reports the Wall Street Journal. " Defying Trump, U.N. General Assembly Condemns U.S. Decree on Jerusalem," reports the New York Times. As bean-counting goes, that's an accurate depiction of Thursday's UN-as-usual vote, to which these headlines refer. But I'd say...

    Israel has announced it is leaving UNESCO citing the U.N. cultural agency’s “systematic attacks” on the Jewish state. Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said Friday that the decision was based on the organization’s “attempts to disconnect Jewish history from the land of Israel.” He said the official letter of departure will be submitted before the year’s end and that Israel will leave the organization by the end of 2018. Earlier this year the U.S said it will withdraw from UNESCO, also at that time, citing similar reasons. …

    The World Assembly of Anti-Semites, better known as the U.N. General Assembly, voted Thursday, December 21 against Trump's decision to accept Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This vote means that the United Nations no longer recognizes the U.S. as a sovereign country. One hundred twenty-eight U.N. members voted for this decision, nine countries supported America, 35 countries abstained, and 21 countries did not vote at all. On the eve of the vote, Trump threatened to cut American financial assistance to those countries that risk depriving the U.S. of the sovereign right to place its embassies where it pleases. According...

    Speaking to diplomats of more than 30 countries on Wednesday, Bennett stressed that “Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people, and nothing can change that reality.” Bennett said that the UN vote is “meaningless. Another empty UN vote”. Bennett also told the assembled diplomats that rejecting Jerusalem as Israel’s capital gave a tailwind to terrorism. “Your decision not to vote for Jerusalem as being the capital of Israel shows that all those who use violence against Israel are succeeding,” said Bennett. “It gives them the feeling like their actions are justified.” …
