Netanyahu Addresses the UN – The World is Silent

Ireael’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, spoke at the UN General Assembly on Thursday for over forty minutes. He speaks about the world’s silence to Israel’s plight in this short clip:

“…home to over 6,000,000 Jews. He [Iran’s ruler] pledged: “There will be no Israel in 25 years.” Seventy years after the murder of six 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.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu then dramatizes and mimics the world’s silence by pausing and staring down the crowd, glaring at them, if you will, for 44 seconds. It seemed like an eternity. He then resumed his speech:

“Perhaps you can now understand why Israel is not joining you in celebrating this deal. If Iran’s rulers were working to destroy your country, perhaps you’d be less enthusiastic about the deal. if Iran’s terror proxies were firing thousands of
rockets at your cities, perhaps you’d be more measured, in your praise, And if this deal were unleashing a nuclear arms race in your neighborhood, perhaps you’d be more reluctant to celebrate.”
