Yad Vashem chairman Dani Dayan has expressed his disappointment over the decision of the Israeli delegation to the UN to wear yellow badges. "We were deeply saddened to witness members of the Israeli delegation to the UN donning yellow badges," Dayan stated on Tuesday. He emphasized that such a move not only dishonors the victims of the Holocaust but also the State of Israel itself.

Dayan remarked, "The yellow badge symbolizes the historical vulnerability of the Jewish people and their dependence on the mercy of others. Today, the scenario has changed. We have an independent nation and a formidable army. We determine our own fate. Instead of a yellow badge, we should be proudly displaying a blue-and-white flag.”
