Israel’s UN ambassador wears Nazi-era yellow star in protest, compares Hamas to SS death squad

Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations called out the organization for its failure to condemn Hamas “atrocities” while donning a Nazi-era yellow star as a stark reminder of what happened in the past when the “world” stayed silent.

During a heated address before the UN Security Council, Ambassador Gilad Erdan compared the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attack to what his grandfather Chaim and his children endured when they were ripped away from their lives and taken to Auschwitz by the Nazis.

“When his babies were sent to the gas chambers, the world stayed silent. When their bodies were burned along with millions of other Jewish children, the world was silent,” Erdan said during Monday’s meeting.

“Today, after innocent Jewish babies were burned alive, this Council is still silent. Some of you have learned nothing in the past 80 years.

“Some of you have forgotten why this body was established.”

Israeli United Nations Ambassador Gilad Erdan places a yellow star on his chest as he speaks during a Security Council meeting on the Israel-Hamas war at U.N. headquarters on October 30, 2023 in New York City.
Erdan told the Council he will continue to wear the star until the UN condemns Hamas's actions.
Jews are seen wearing the Star of David after being liberated from Nazi German camps by Red Army troops on Nov. 29, 1944.
