Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, has strongly criticized the recent statements from the Human Rights Council (HRC) and its commissioner. Calling the HRC's claims 'false' and 'immoral,' Erdan rebuked their stance on the Hamas terrorist attacks.

During a press briefing on Tuesday, the White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, expressed her disapproval of the far-left 'Squad' members' comments on the war between Israel and Hamas. She denounced their remarks as 'wrong,' 'repugnant,' and 'disgraceful.'

A seemingly anti-Israel statement was made by Ambassador Zaman Mehdi from Pakistan on behalf of the IOC member states. He expressed deep concerns over the loss of innocent lives in occupied Palestinian territory and criticized Israel's actions as a sad reminder of illegal foreign occupation and aggression.

In response, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Turk, called on both the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Hamas to respect international humanitarian law and ease tensions. However, his criticism of Israel's 'full siege' on Gaza faced backlash from Erdan, who accused the HRC of losing its moral compass.

During their exchange, Erdan provoked a powerful question: 'How many dead Jews does it take to justify a proportionate response against a genocidal terror organization?' He emphasized Hamas' declared goal of exterminating the Israeli population and questioned the HRC's support for Israel's right to self-defense.

Erdan vowed that Israel would continue to protect itself and strongly denounced the HRC's false and immoral comparisons. He concluded by stating that the world cannot accept such a distorted moral standard that allows these atrocities to persist. Israel remains resolute in its mission to obliterate Hamas' terror infrastructure.
