Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is visiting Israel as part of a “solidarity mission” to the U.S. ally — just as Democrats are fighting among themselves over their positions on the conflict between Israel and the terrorist organization Hamas.
“No matter the challenges, the people of Israel always celebrate life and thank God for their blessings,” Haley tweeted with an image of her praying at the Western Wall. “It’s humbling to join them again in prayer at such a holy place.”

Haley and her husband Michael were in Jerusalem as part of a mission by the group Christians United for Israel that it described as a “solidarity mission” to Israel.
“We remain committed to unequivocally standing with our nation’s closest ally and will forever pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” the group tweeted.
Haley is one of a number of Republicans, including Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, to visit the country in recent weeks after Israel responded to rocket attacks launched by Hamas with airstrikes of its own.
While Republicans have backed Israel almost universally, Democrats have been split on the issue. The White House carefully expressed support for the ally, while pushing for a cease-fire. But some of the more left-wing members of the House caucus was critical of Israel and the administration’s support for what it saw as an excessive response.
