UN: 'Shame on you, collaborator' - Israel rep. to human rights leader

United States, New York City
October 18, 2018 at 19:39 GMT +00:00 · Published

Israeli Permanent Representative to the United Nations Danny Danon called the director of an Israeli human rights group a "collaborator" after he gave a speech critical of Israeli occupation in Palestine, during a UN Security Council session in New York City, on Thursday.

"Mr. El-Ad, you are a citizen of the State of Israel who serves our enemies. They use you against us. The IDF soldiers are guarding you and you are coming here to defame them. Shame on you, shame on you, collaborator," Danon said in Hebrew to Hagai El-Ad, the director of the B'Teselem non-profit organisation, after he had accused Israel of "oppressing millions while somehow still being considered a democracy."

"With more than 50 years of experience, we have had more than plenty of time to perfect this well-oiled farce. We are now quite expert at constructing this facade of legality, which has been very successful at allowing us not to have to deal with any real international consequences," El-Ad told the UNSC referring to the Israeli High Court ordering the demolition of the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar.

"I am not a traitor, nor am I a hero. The heroes are the Palestinians, who endure this occupation with courage and perseverance," added El-Ad.

United States Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley called El-Ad's speech "distorted" and "one sided" during her speech.
