Editorial in official PA daily rejoices at the news of US Ambassador Haley leaving her post, calling her the “the most ugly, arrogant, and conceited racist voice”

Excerpt of an editorial of the official PA daily

Headline: “Bye bye, Haley”

“Whether US Ambassador to the UN [Nikki] Haley quit or was fired – and that is the more reasonable option – the house of international legitimacy [the UN] is finally rid of the most ugly, arrogant, and conceited racist voice…
In effect, Haley was nothing more than a source of tension at the UN, and what is more – a source that incites to more violence and aggression, especially regarding her frantic defense of Israel, whose army snipes at children on the Gaza border (apparently refers to defensive measures against violent March of Return protests; see note below –Ed.)! We have no doubt that the house of international legitimacy is living in a relaxed atmosphere now…
The possibility that Haley was fired is more reasonable and logical than that she submitted her resignation of her own will because she ‘wants to rest.’ There are international political circles in which it is said that states with considerable importance in the international community advised the US to remove Haley from the UN. According to other news items, financial and administrative corruption by Haley and her differences of opinion with the [US] State Department are hiding behind the dismissal. Regardless of the situation, today Haley is out of history, which says to her: ‘Bye bye, Haley.’”

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley announced her resignation on Oct. 9, 2018. The announcement was made in a joint briefing with US President Donald Trump, who said Haley had informed him of her decision to resign citing her desire “to take a break,” and that Haley’s resignation would take effect by the end of 2018. Trump added: “We're all happy for you in one way, but we hate to lose you – hopefully you'll be coming back at some point but in a different capacity. You can have your pick.”

"The March of Return" refers to massive violent riots in Gaza, in which thousands of Palestinians are rioting on the border with Israel and attempting to cut through the security fence, attacking with firebombs, flaming kites, and gunfire. The riots began on March 30, 2018, and were scheduled to last for 6 weeks until Palestinian "Nakba" Day on May 15. On the day the US embassy opened in Jerusalem, May 14, 2018, the Palestinian attacks escalated and 62 Palestinians were killed. A senior official of the terror organization Hamas, Salah Bardawil, stated that 50 of the 62 belonged to Hamas, while Islamic Jihad identified 3 others as belonging to it.
The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, an Israeli research institute, published research documenting that from the start of the riots on March 30 until May 15, 93 of the 112 Palestinians killed in the riots (approximately 83%) were members of terrorist organizations.
Petitions against the IDF's use of live fire to combat the rioting submitted by organizations that advocate for Palestinian rights were rejected by Israel's Supreme Court on May 24, 2018. The court accepted the state's argument that the riots were "organized and directed" by Hamas, a terrorist organization, and thereby rejecting the claim that the riots were peaceful and civilian in nature. PMW reports were referred to in the Supreme Court's decision.
