United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley delivered the keynote address before an audience of thousands at the Christians United for Israel Summit in Washington, D.C., Monday night.
The crowd honored Haley with a standing ovation as CUFI founder Pastor John Hagee presented her with the Defender of Israel Award.
"Each year the leadership of CUFI elects the one person in America that we feel has done the most to defend and protect Israel. We are delighted and highly honored to present this award to Ambassador Haley," Hagee said as he gave her a golden plaque.
Haley is known as a loud defender of Israel at the United Nations—a place she refers to as the "global epicenter of anti-Semitism."
"The United Nations is an interesting place. There are times when it can be a force for good," she said. "The U.N. can also be an enormously frustrating and bizarre place. Nowhere is that more pronounced than in the truly awful way that the U.N. has treated Israel for decades"
Despite the United Nation's repeated attempts to condemn and undermine the Jewish State, Haley says the U.S. is changing that behavior.
"Change comes with leadership and clarity from the United States. That leadership and clarity was on full display when President Trump made the bold and right decision to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem," she said. "Jerusalem has historically been, is now and will always be the capital of Israel."
