Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum director Dani Dayan calls out Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan for donning a yellow Star of David during his address to the Security Council yesterday, saying it “dishonors both the victims of the Holocaust and the State of Israel.”
“The yellow patch symbolizes the helplessness of the Jewish people and being at the mercy of others. Today we have an independent country and a strong army,” Dayan tweets.
“We are masters of our destiny. Today we place a blue-white flag on the lapel, not a yellow patch,” he adds.
Erdan told the Security Council he and his staff would wear the yellow stars inscribed with the words “Never Again” until members of the body condemned Hamas’s “atrocities.”
