On Tuesday, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, blistered the UN as it prepared to vote on a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire between Israel and Gaza.

The UN displayed once again its contempt for Israel and its whitewashing of its enemies; the UN website admitted, “Prior to the resolution, two amendments making specific reference to extremist group Hamas were voted down by members.” The resolution ultimately passed with only 10 countries voting against it: the U.S., Israel, Austria, Czechia, Guatemala, Liberia, Micronesia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, and Paraguay. Twenty-three other countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Argentina, Malawi, the Netherlands, Ukraine, South Sudan, and Uruguay, abstained.

“Again, we find ourselves about to vote upon yet another hypocritical resolution,” Erdan began. “Not only does this resolution fail to condemn Hamas for their crimes against humanity, it doesn’t even mention Hamas at all. This is a resolution that will only prolong the death and destruction in the region.”

“On October 6, there was a ceasefire and it was abruptly violated; not by Israel, but by 3,000 Hamas Nazis who invaded my country; raping women, beheading babies, burning families alive, and deliberately exterminating innocent civilians like insects,” he recalled.

He turned to the countries who have sided against Israel in its war on Hamas: “What would your country do if you were in Israel’s shoes? Call for a ceasefire? What would Moscow do? Beijing? Istanbul? How would you respond? Everyone here knows exactly.”

Erdan noted that the December 1 pause in the war was violated by Hamas firing rockets into Israel once more. “Those who support this resolution are giving the terrorists a free pass,” he declared. “A ceasefire means one thing and one thing only: ensuring the survival of Hamas; ensuring the survival of genocidal terrorists committed to the annihilation of Israel and Jews.”


Erdan quoted Hamas leaders saying October 7 was a “rehearsal.” “A ceasefire is a death sentence for countless more Israelis and Gazans,” he declared. Then he gave the members of the UN a visual aid as he stated, “I have an idea: If you want a real ceasefire, here is the right address.” Erdan then held up a large card that read: “For a Ceasefire dial +970-599373765.” Next to a photo of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, the card also read, “Ask for Yahya Sinwar.”

“This is the phone number of Hamas’ office in Gaza,” Erdan stated. “You can all call +970-599373765 and ask for Yahya Sinwar. Tell Hamas to put down their arms, turn themselves in, and return our hostages. This will bring a complete ceasefire that will last forever.”

“So why are you not doing this?” he asked rhetorically. “Why are you not holding Hamas accountable? Ironically today is the United Nations International Day of Neutrality, the day on which the UN reminds itself to be an impartial mediator in the escalating conflict. Ignoring the war crimes of genocidal terrorists on today of all days; this body further proves its utter irrelevance. What a disgrace.”

“Hamas does not respond to General Assembly resolutions; Hamas responds only to threats on its survival,” he pointed out. “Continuing Israel’s operation in Gaza is the only way any hostages will be released. This disgraceful resolution serves only one purpose: to try to tie Israel’s hands and allow Hamas to continue its reign of terror.”

“No piece of paper, especially one that is adopted by a biased, politicized majority, will prevent Israel from defending itself against those that seek our destruction. Israel is fighting a war for our future. There is not a single member state here, not a single member state here, that would act differently in a similar situation,” he concluded.
