Erdan to UN: It Doesn’t Work Both Ways

The UN Security Council held a high-level meeting about the Israel-Hamas war on Wednesday in New York. Foreign ministers from some Middle Eastern countries, along with China and Brazil.

At the meeting, UN Sec.-Gen. António Guterres called for a “true humanitarian ceasefire” and the release of all hostages held by Hamas in Gaza.

“How can one call for a ceasefire and at the same time claim to seek a solution to the conflict?” Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan responded.

“Anyone who supports a ceasefire basically supports Hamas’ continued reign of terror in Gaza. Hamas is a genocidal terror organization – they don’t hide it – not a reliable partner for peace. Don’t you see the contradiction here? Calling for both a ceasefire and peace is a paradox.”
