Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's Prime Minister has expressed gratitude to the United States for using its veto power on the resolution opposing the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He shared a video on his Twitter feed, where he shows how just thankful he is to US President Donald Trump for taking such a decision and to US Envoy to the United Nations, Nikky Haley, for standing up for Israel at the Security Council meeting.
Thank you, Ambassador Haley. On Hanukkah, you spoke like a Maccabi. You lit a candle of truth. You dispel the darkness. One defeated the many. Truth defeated lies. Thank you, President Trump. Thank you, Nikki Haley. pic.twitter.com/zFIiStoait— Benjamin Netanyahu (@netanyahu) 18 декабря 2017 г.

In my opinion… one of the biggest compliments you can get from the Orthodox Jewish community… is being compared to a Maccabee— Matt Rivera ✡🕎🇺🇸🇮🇱 (@marine2medicine) 18 декабря 2017 г.
Amb Haley has had years of passive ambassadorship to overcome, but she's doing it beautifully. The boundaries are being set, once again!— Politics & Tweets (@EuropeNextYear) 19 декабря 2017 г.
WE are proud of our Ambassador for standing up on behalf of Israel.— Keven McGinn (@McginnKeven) 18 декабря 2017 г.
IT IS ABOUT TIME!
Thank you for your profound words, PM Netanyahu.
…and showing how proud they are of Trump's decision.
I love this, and I’m so glad to see my government support #Israel after 8 years of letting them dangle on their own like a fish on a hook. Every #President promised to move the embassy, the #Senate voted 90-10 to do it, but only #Trump actually did it.— Jim F (@solarfleck) 18 декабря 2017 г.
@seanhannity @LouDobbs @IngrahamAngle @TuckerCarlson @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump This is such a beautiful tribute to President Trump for his strong leadership on the world stage. Thanks to Nikki Haley.— b.b (@becker_berta) 18 декабря 2017 г.
Nearly two weeks ago, US President Donald Trump made a controversial decision recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, which has provoked the condemnation of the international community and sparked mass outrage across the Arab world. The move has led to the escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic fundamentalist organization, announcing the beginning of the third intifada. The clashes between Israeli and Palestinians have developed into an echange of fire.
