Netanyahu Today at UN

1 10 2015

Don't worry AmericaThis was perhaps the most powerful 45 seconds of silence you will ever witness. Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu exposed the hypocrisy of the nations who have not condemned the Iran’s constant calls for Israel’s annihilation.

The most poignant moment of the speech involved no remarks at all, as Netanyahu, in his seventh UN General Assembly address, asked the body if it had forgotten the lessons of the Holocaust just seventy years since its founding. He quoted from Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, from its president and its military commanders, all reiterating a familiar pledge: Israel, a state where six million Jews reside, must be annihilated, sooner rather than later. “Seventy years after the murder of six million Jews, Iran’s rulers promise to destroy my country, murder my people,” Netanyahu said. “And the response from this body— the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here— has been absolutely nothing. Utter silence. Deafening silence.” 
Silence followed the charge as the prime minister surveyed the room with a stoic stare. None spoke or moved in the audience as Netanyahu, at the lectern, remained quiet for nearly a minute. Jerusalem Post 10-1-15

I also want to share my top five quotes from the speech:

  1. When bad behavior is rewarded, it only gets worse.
  2. The best intentions don’t prevent the worst outcomes.
  3. Make sure that the inspectors actually inspect. Make sure that the snapback sanctions actually snap back. And make sure that Iran’s violations aren’t swept under the Persian rug.
  4. In four years of horrific violence in Syria, more than a quarter of a million people have lost their lives. That’s more than ten times, more than ten times, the number of Israelis and Palestinians combined who have lost their lives in a century of conflict between us. Yet last year, this Assembly adopted 20 resolutions against Israel and just one resolution about the savage slaughter in Syria. Talk about injustice. Talk about disproportionality. Twenty. Count them. One against Syria.
  5. Israel is civilization’s front line in the battle against barbarism.So here’s a novel idea for the United Nations: Instead of continuing the shameful routine of bashing Israel, stand with Israel. Stand with Israel as we check the fanaticism at our door. Stand with Israel as we prevent that fanaticism from reaching your door. Ladies and Gentlemen, stand with Israel because Israel is not just defending itself. More than ever, Israel is defending you. (Click for full text of speech)           (Click for video of speech)

Why the West is Losing to Jihad | Elisha Vision - Commentary

[…] Headline: “Muhannad the newborn hugs Muhannad the Martyr, and the two of them unite the homeland” “Even before the Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi was buried, the cry of a baby was heard in a hospital in the Gaza Strip, heralding the birth of a baby named Muhannad Halabi… The parents of the baby decided to name their new son Muhannad Halabi after the Martyr Halabi from the village of El-Bireh, who was murdered by the occupation’s army in occupied Jerusalem. While still in the hospital, the mother of the baby called the mother of Martyr Halabi… During the phone conversation, the two mothers cried from joy: The mother of the baby cried from joy at the birth of her baby, who eternalized the name of the hero among the heroes of our eternal people, and the second mother (i.e., of the terrorist) cried from joy at the birth of the baby that will eternalize the name of her son the Martyr.” ‘I yelled for help and they spat at me,’ says victim of Jerusalem attack: “The terrorist lunged at us, started stabbing my husband, then me. I tried to take away the knife, but I failed… I yelled ‘please help me!’ and they just spat at me,” said Banita of the surrounding Palestinian shopkeepers whom she said looked on and did nothing as Palestinian terrorist Muhannad Halabi attacked her and her family in an alleyway near Lion’s Gate in the Old City. The Banitas’ two-year-old son was also lightly injured in the attack. Their infant girl was unharmed. End the evil of those who are wicked, and defend the righteous. For you look deep within the mind and heart, O righteous God. Psalm 7:9 NLT Redeem Israel, O God, out of all their troubles! Psalm 25:22 Les Lawrence, Voice of Christian Zionists             (READ MORE) […]
