At the UN Security Council, Foreign Minister Eli Cohen plays a recording of what he says is a Hamas terrorist bragging to his parents that he “is proud that he has the blood of 10 [Jews] that he murdered.”
“Mr. Secretary General, this is the world that we live [in],” he says, continuing to pound Antonio Guterres for his comment that the Hamas attacks did not occur in a vacuum.
According to the IDF, which played the tape as part of a screening for foreign journalists on Hamas atrocities a day earlier, the call was made using the phone of a woman the terrorist had just killed.
In it, the terrorist boasts of being a hero for killing 10 Jews with his own hands.
Cohen tweets that he has canceled a planned meeting with Guterres.
“After October 7, there is no room for a balanced approach,” he writes.
In Israel, minister Benny Gantz also takes aim at Guterres.
Dark are the days when the United Nations Secretary General condones terror.
Absolutely nothing can justify the slaughter of innocent civilians.
Now is the time to stand on the right side of history, or be judged by it.
Terror apologists cannot speak on behalf of the world.
