USAID nominee Samantha Power questioned over anti-Israel record as U.N. Ambassador


Arutz Sheva: President Joe Biden’s nominee for USAID, Samantha Power, who has been criticized for past anti-Israel statements and actions, is facing tough questions at her confirmation hearing, especially over a controversial decision made during her tenure as U.N.

That Samantha Power was all in with Obama’s decision is not in question. She (like the rest of the Obama deep state) is back and ready to wreak havoc on Israel with the re-emergence of the two state solution in defiance of God given boundaries,

Tighten those seat belts: President Biden’s UN Ambassador, Linda Thomas-Greenfield has promised to re-join the UNHRC, the anti-Semitic commission that Donald Trump withdrew from in 2019, who has condemned Israel by more resolutions than the entire rest of the world combined.
