Watch: Israeli UN Ambassador Takes Up ALS 'Ice Bucket Challenge'


Israel's Ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, has become the latest high-profile figure to accept the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge", a viral campaign which aims to raise awareness and funds for the ALS Association to research Lou Gehrig’s disease.

"As Israel's ambassador to the United Nations I usually get a chilly reception..." quipped Prosor, who is well-known for his witty one-liners, before nominating "the Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, who spends most of his time trying to break the ice between countries" to take up the challenge himself.
