"Unfortunately, rather than pushing peace forward, the Security Council’s debates on the situation in the Middle East only seem to perpetuate the conflict," Israel's Ambassador to the US and UN said.

NEW YORK – Israel's Ambassador to the United States and the United Nations Gilad Erdan sharply criticized the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday during Middle East discussions for not holding the Palestinian leadership accountable for its actions. Erdan's remarks came following the Council's decision to invite Hanan Ashrawi, a former senior leader in the Palestine Liberation Organization and Palestinian Authority, as a member of Palestinian civil society to brief the Council. He also condemned the Council for ignoring Iran's "murderous regime."

In his speech, Ambassador Erdan said, "Unfortunately, rather than pushing peace forward, the Security Council’s debates on the Situation in the Middle East, only seem to perpetuate the conflict. Rather than helping to turn the vision of peace into a reality, these debates create an alternate and false reality. These biased debates give the Palestinians the illusion that they will never be held accountable for their crimes and that all of their radical demands could be granted by the international community. The unbalanced discussions only serve to strengthen Palestinian rejectionism of any further negotiations with Israel, thereby maintaining the conflict."
