Israeli envoy Erdan lashes out as UN mourns Iran’s Raisi: ‘What’s next? A moment of silence for Hitler?’

Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan lashes out at the Security Council for observing a moment’s silence today in memory of Iranian President Ebhraim Raisi, who was confirmed dead this morning.

“You read correctly, the UN Security Council today held a moment’s silence to remember a mass murder, Iranian President Raisi,” Erdan says in a video statement.

“This body, which makes no effort to free our hostages, tipped their heads today to a man who was responsible for the deaths of thousands in Iran, in Israel, and around the world.”

“What’s next? A minute of silence on the anniversary of Hitler’s death?” Erdan asks, charging that the UN Security Council has become “a danger to world peace.”
