• Netanyahu Shames U.N. Assembly For Not Condemning Iran’s Threat to Destroy Israel

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered an aggressive speech to the United Nations and its member governments on Thursday, blasting the international body for their failure to contain extremism across the wider Middle East and their “utter silence” on Iran’s threats to his country’s people and existence.

    “Seventy years after the murder of 6 million Jews, Iran’s rulers promise to destroy my country, murder my people; and the response from this body — the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here — has been absolutely nothing,” the Israeli leader said in his speech to the UN General Assembly. “Utter silence. Deafening silence.”

    A defiant Netanyahu then paused for 45 seconds in the middle of his speech before the United Nations and stared silently around at the members, shaming them for the world’s complicity with the attempted genocide of the Jews in World War II.

    “Perhaps you can now understand why Israel is not joining you in celebrating this [Iran nuclear] deal,” he continued. “If Iran’s rulers were working to destroy your countries, perhaps you’d be less enthusiastic about the deal.”

    Netanyahu has denounced  the agreement that was reached among the U.S., five world powers, and Iran in July, claiming it would threaten the survival and security of his nation. Israeli leaders had demanded that the deal include a provision requiring Iran to recognize Israel as a state, but President Obama called that a “fundamental misjudgment.”
