Nikki Haley at Jerusalem Event: “The US Can Never Let Israel Down”
Anti-Semitism should always be called out, Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said at a recent event for the Jerusalem College of Technology.
Haley spoke out against the recent wave of anti-Semitism, while reaffirming the need for the US to stand with Israel.
Recently, the Canadian Friends of Jerusalem College of Technology (CF-JCT) held its 50th-anniversary gala dinner in Toronto. Haley gave the keynote address and received an honorary degree.
The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, who stood strongly against an anti-Israel bias at the institution, took the opportunity to speak out against anti-Semitism, a problem that has recently skyrocketed in the United States.
“We have to call out anti-Semitism every time we see it,” Haley said to the 500 attendees at the event. “It’s not okay. It will never be okay. We have to speak up every time we see it. We have to humiliate those that do it every time they do it. And we have to remind leaders to speak up.”
She also addressed the problem of intolerance on college campuses. “We have to remind our leaders that they have to speak up because I don’t want kids going to college wondering if they will be targeted,” she said at the Toronto gala, where she also commended the Trump administration for taking the matter seriously when they enacted legislation that would pull federal funding from universities if they didn’t rebuke anti-Semitism on their campus.
