In fiery speech, Netanyahu challenges UN on moral grounds

Excerpt from PM Netanyahu’s speech at the UN General Assembly:

“Ladies and gentlemen, I have long said that the greatest danger facing our world is the coupling of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. I am gravely concerned that the nuclear deal with Iran will prove to be the marriage certificate of that holy union. I know that well-intentioned people sincerely believe that this is the best way to block Iran’s path to the bomb, but one of history’s most important, yet least learned lessons is this, the best intentions don’t prevent the worst outcomes.

The vast majority of Israelis believe that this nuclear deal with Iran is a very bad deal. What makes matters even worse is that we see a world celebrating this bad deal—rushing to embrace and do business with a regime openly committed to our destruction.

Last week the major general of the Iran’s army proclaimed this, quote, ‘We will annihilate Israel for sure. We are glad that we are in the forefront of executing the supreme leader’s order to the destroy Israel,’ end quote. And as for the supreme leader, himself—a few days after the nuke nuclear deal was announced, he released his latest book. Here it is. It is a 400-page creed planning to destroy the state of Israel.

Last month, Khomeini once again made the genocidal intentions clear before Iran’s top clerical body, the assembly of experts. He spoke about Israel—home to over 6 million Jews. He pledged, quote, ‘There will be no Israel in 25 years.’ end quote. Seventy years after the murder of 6 million Jews, Iran’s rulers promised 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. Utter silence. Deafening silence.”

“Perhaps you can understand why Israel is not joining you in celebrating this deal.”
