Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan walks ahead of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s speech and leaves a picture of his Holocaust-survivor grandparents at the Israeli seat.

The move is to protest Raisi’s recent comments that cast doubt on the Holocaust.

“It is a new moral low for the UN. A mass-murdering Holocaust-denier gets the podium at the UN to speak his hatred. Every ambassador that stays to hear him should be embarrassed,” Erdan says.
