‘If Hitler were alive, he would praise the UN, which is considering recognizing a Palesti-Nazi terror state,’ says Israel’s UN Ambassador Erdan

A UNSC Committee will discuss granting a permanent member state status to the Palestinian Authority

The Palestinian Authority has long sought to become a full member of the United Nations. Hoping that the war in Gaza will strengthen their bid, the PA has renewed its bid to be recognized as a state by the world body.

On Monday, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) discussed the matter in a session that was convened following a Russian and Chinese veto on a resolution promoted by the United States. The council decided to refer the Palestinian Authority's application to the Committee of Admission of New Members.

The 15-member committee is expected to hold deliberations within the month of April. 

“Any member of the council may decide to present a resolution for membership to be voted at any time, as is the procedure of the Council,” said Vanessa Frazier, Malta’s UN ambassador. Malta holds the UNSC presidency for April.

Currently, the PA is considered a non-member observer state at the United Nations. The PA’s application to become a full member state has never reached a formal vote at the UNSC before, which is an essential requirement to guarantee its membership. Approval requires at least nine votes in favor and no vetoes by the five permanent members of the council. 

In the past, the United States which holds such a veto power, has objected to the notion. Like other Western states, the U.S. traditionally believed that such recognition should only be given following final-status peace negotiations between Israel and the PA. 

Israel vehemently rejects the idea. More so, in the aftermath of the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas, and the Palestinian Authority's refusal to condemn it. 

Israel’s UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan blasted the UNSC for considering the Palestinian request. 

“The UN, the organization founded to prevent Nazi ideology from spreading, has committed itself to reinforcing modern-day Nazi Jihadists. And today, breaking the Guinness World Record for rewarding terror, the UN now, in complete violation of its charter, is considering to force the establishment of a Palestinian terror state,” he said.

“This won’t be a regular state – it will be a Palesti-Nazi state. An entity that achieved statehood despite being committed to terror and Israel’s annihilation. If Hitler was alive today, he would be singing the UN’s praises,” Erdan continued. 

“If this happens, the UN will be remembered as a body that has been hijacked by dictators and human rights violators. A body that rewards Nazi-like monsters.”

Erdan noted that a Palestinian state would be a threat to Israel’s national security and underscored it would also be a “blatant violation of the UN Charter.” 

He explained that the basic requirements for admission to the United Nations include having a permanent population, a defined territory, a government and the capacity to enter relations with other states. 

He added, “A very important principle that was stated in Article 4 of the UN Charter is, ‘Membership in the United Nations is open to all peace-loving states.’ Peace-loving. Nothing is clearer than the fact that the Palestinians fail to meet these criteria…For many years, the PA has been paying terrorists for their murderous terror attacks. This is not customary. It is Palestinian legislation... The longer the prison sentence you get, the higher the salary. You murder more Jews, you get more money.”

Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian UN ambassador, called it a “historic moment.” 

"We sincerely hope after 12 years since we change our status to an observer state, that the Security Council will elevate itself to implementing the global consensus on the two-state solution by admitting the state of Palestine for full membership," he said.
