Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu Says what President Obama Should Have Said in U.N. Speech - Complete Video 9/24/09
Here is video of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaking today at the United Nations where he refuted directly the anti-semitic claims of Iranian thug Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Netanyahu actually showed minutes of a meeting Hitler had with Himmler and others to plan the Holocaust extermination of the Jewish people. He also held up the original plans for the Auschwitz Concentration Camp signed by Himmler himself and asked dramatically, "Are these (plans) a lie?"
He blasted Iran's "odious regime" as a "terrorist state," and said they threaten not only the Jewish people but the entire world.
Netanyahu asked if the United Nations would just stand idly by while Iran acquires atomic weapons. He said the people of Israel wants peace, but that it can only be achieved with security.
This was an outstanding speech by a truly courageous leader. As I listened, I could not help but think that the United States should have such a leader. Actually, I thought to myself that President Obama should have been saying yesterday the things that Netanyahu said today. Just as Reagan was strong and courageous to stand up and call the Soviet Union the "Evil Empire," Obama should be just as strong in condemning Iran and Ahmadenejad and supporting Israel.
But just as Obama's party opposed Reagan's strong stance, Obama will refuse to stand for truth and justice today. America needs a Benjamin Netanyahu to lead us in a dangerous world.
