Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, addressed the General Assembly on Wednesday in a discussion on the "Question of Palestine," in which the Assembly will vote on three anti-Israel resolutions as part of an annual series of resolutions known as the "Palestinian Package." Ambassador Erdan responded to the resolutions that will be voted on and sharply criticized the resolution on Jerusalem, which deletes the original Jewish name "Temple Mount" and calls the site only by its Muslim name "Haram al-Sharif," ignoring the 3,000-year-old connection between the Jewish people and Jerusalem.

Erdan also attacked the Palestinian Authority, which is running a campaign of lies and incitement against the State of Israel and did not even condemn the murder of the late Eli Kay in Jerusalem last week by a Palestinian Arab terrorist. "Eli Kay, a young and vibrant 26-year-old, grew up in South Africa, but dreamt of immigrating to Israel, the homeland of the Jewish people. After moving to Israel, he spent time working on a Kibbutz – it was important for Eli to work the land and feel its holiness. Eli loved Israel, but he had a special connection with Jerusalem. He became a tour guide at the Western Wall and dedicated himself to sharing with others the unbreakable bond with the Holy City. Eli was accepting of everyone and always greeted people warmly with a smile, no matter who they were. Eli had been planning his upcoming engagement to Jen, his girlfriend. Jen was ready to start a family and spend the rest of her life with him, as Eli was the most gentle, caring, and considerate person she had ever met,” said Erdan.
