Erdan’s Little Black Book

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan dramatically held up a poster bearing the phone number of Hamas’ central office on the United Nations floor Tuesday and urged other members to call if they want a “real ceasefire” in Gaza.

Erdan made the impassioned plea shortly before the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly adopted a resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire.

“I honestly don’t know how can someone look in the mirror and support a resolution that doesn’t condemn Hamas and doesn’t even mention Hamas by name. But you know what? I have an idea. If you want a real ceasefire, here is the right address,” Erdan said before whipping out the sign.
