US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, calls on Security Council to designate Hamas a terrorist organization
In addition to Hamas, its parent organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as its affiliated organizations in North America including CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) should also be designated as terrorist groups.
UnitedWithIsrael Speaking at a special UN Security Council (UNSC) meeting marking the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War, Haley called on the Council to “stand up and condemn Hamas’ reign of terror.” “Hamas represents yet another regional threat that this Council far too often ignores,” she stated.
“While UN agencies and member states dissect Israel’s actions, few speak out against the terror that Hamas continues to plot. Some Member States of this organization even maintain ties to Hamas and other terrorist groups that flourish in Gaza,” Haley charged.
Haley called on the Council members to do “much more to show Hamas that we will never tolerate terrorism. We must show that when Hamas uses homes and schools to hide its terrorist infrastructure, there will be consequences.”
