‘Nikki Haley, the blood is on your hands,’ protesters shout

A number of protesters interrupted US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley’s speech at the University of Houston this week, accusing her of having the Palestinian blood on her hands and of signing off on genocide in her support for the Zionist regime.

Shortly after Haley started her speech at the university on Tuesday and had just referred to the “very busy few weeks in American foreign policy,” she was cut short by a protester shouting, “Nikki Haley, the blood is on your hands.”


“You continue to sign off on the genocide of a native people,” the protester continued among loud applause and booing.


“Nikki, Nikki can’t you see, you are on a killing spree!” a number of demonstrators shouted. “Haley, Haley, you can’t hide, you sign off on genocide.”


“Nikki, Nikki you will see, Palestine will be free!” the protesters shouted.


Haley had vehemently supported Israel at the United Nations after Israeli troops killed more than 60 Palestinians and injured hundreds others at the Great Return March protests last week.


Haley defended Israel’s “restraint” at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council before walking out of the room when Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour began speaking.


She also cast blame on Hamas and its supporters for the bloodshed. Addressing the UN Security Council, Haley said, “Let's remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States decided to move our embassy. This is what is endangering the people of Gaza. Make no mistake, Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday.”


American political commentator and antiwar activist Richard Becker told Press TV last week that “it’s a truly outrageous and incredible statement coming from the White House and Nikki Haley, of the United Nations, blaming the Palestinians for the massacre that took place yesterday”
