Video: Israeli Ambassador, Gilad Erdan, Shreds UN Charter to Protest Palestinian Bid for Full Membership

In protest against the United Nations General Assembly’s vote to advance Palestinian membership, Israel’s UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan shredded a copy of the UN Charter during his speech. The stunt aimed to illustrate what he called the General Assembly’s disregard for the founding document by endorsing a “Palestinian terror state.”

The vote was passed with 143 nations in favor. It sought to elevate Palestine’s status from an observer to a full member state. Erdan fiercely condemned the resolution, accusing the UN of opening its doors to “modern-day Nazis” and “genocidal jihadists.”

“You have opened up the United Nations to modern-day Nazis, to genocidal jihadists committed to establishing an Islamic State across Israel and the region, murdering every Jewish man, woman, and child,” Gilad Erdan declared, invoking the Holocaust and World War II.

The Israeli ambassador’s actions followed an impassioned speech by Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour, who cited the ongoing conflict in Gaza and the anti-war protests at Columbia University. Mansour implored the assembly to vote “Yes,” claiming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was “ready to kill thousands more for his political survival.”

The United Nations General Assembly’s vote was carried out following the growing tensions between Israel and Palestinian militant groups, with humanitarian officials reporting a slowdown in aid shipments to Gaza due to the ongoing battles. Israel has ordered the evacuation of an estimated 100,000 residents from the eastern part of Rafah for their safety.

While the resolution recognizes Palestine’s qualification for UN membership, it does not grant full statehood. Gilad Erdan condemned the move as a “clear violation” of the UN Charter, circumventing the Security Council’s previous veto on the matter.

“You are circumventing the Security Council, ignoring its decision and violating the norms this organization has abided by,” Erdan stated, holding up the shredded UN Charter as a mirror to the General Assembly’s actions.
