Israel’s U.N. Ambassador For Jews Who Hate Arabs
Okay, you win, I am an antisemite. I can’t find anything nice to say about Israel lately — specifically, its government. (I won’t bother saying I’ve spent most of my life in awe of Israel’s success).
The only strategy I can see in Erdan’s comments is to piss off the Arabs, to the point they might attack Israel. That would bring the U.S. into Netanyahu’s on-going wet-dream of going to war with Iran. If you have a better theory, about what Erdan hoped to accomplish here, please leave it in the comments.
I’ll say it again. If Israelis don’t reign in their government of Zionists and military hawks, World War III will be fought yards from their homes. Hamas’s 10/7 attack may go down in history as a footnote! I don’t wish that on anyone. But hey Israel, if you insist on blaming everyone but yourself.
There’s nothing ambassador-like in this speech. It’s pure blame-game. Israeli all-about-me. The U.N. is an organization for nations to work together, to solve problems. One of the problems is Palestinian children dying from bombs. Erdan won’t recognize a single other issue but the importance of killing Hamas soldiers at all costs.
(In fairness to him, ambassadors ain’t what they used to be.)
Anyway, his speech is a masterclass of omissions and historical distortions. Decide for yourself…

Thank you, Mr. President. On November 29th, 1947. The UN voted to adopt the partition plan and the establishment of the Jewish state.

Foreign ministers of some Arab countries have arrived here today in order to support a terror organization that aims to annihilate Israel.
Thankfully, the plan to eliminate Israel was unsuccessfully. Then, just as it will be unsuccessfully today. Despite terrible position, Israel was born. And not only did Israel survive their attack, but we thrived, becoming…
