Netanyahu Slams Ahmadinejad's Speech: Response Speech On Thursday

This is going to be a very interesting week at the UN. With PM Netanyahu scheduled to give his speech tomorrow, we could be seeing Netanyahu basically giving his basis for attacking Iran's nuclear capabilities in the near future. It promises to be a historic moment in Israel's history and quite possibly world history.

Netanyahu: 'Black Day' At UN For Those Who Didn't Walk Out

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed a letter to the citizens of Israel Wednesday just before he boarded a flight to New York, where he will address the UN General Assembly. In it, he castigated the UN delegates who chose to remain in the UN General Assembly hall as Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke there earlier in the day.

"Dear Israeli citizens," he wrote.

"I am taking off tonight to New York, to represent the State of Israel on the UN podium. On the question of Iran, we are all united in the goal of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons."
"On the day that we pray to be inscribed in the Book of Life, the podium was given to the dictatorial regime in Iran that takes every opportunity to sentence us to death."

"On the eve of Yom Kippur, a day that the Jewish people holds sacred, the Iranian dictator chose to call for our disappearance in public, with the entire world watching. This is a black day for those who chose to remain in the hall and hear these hateful words. In my speech before the representatives of nations at the UN General Assembly, they will hear our response.

"As the prime minister of Israel, the state of the Jewish people, I am acting in every possible way so that Iran does not obtain nuclear weapons. History proves that whoever wanted to erase us from the map – failed in his mission, while the Jewish nation overcame all obstacles.
"We've created a marvelous state, one of the most advanced in the world. Israel is a modern, strong state due to the strength and talent of its citizens and thanks to our belief in the justness of our path. I wish you a gmar chatima tova." 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left for New York in the immediate aftermath of the Yom Kippur fast on Wednesday evening, to address the annual General Assembly of the United Nations on Thursday and conduct meetings with several world leaders.Shortly before flying out, Netanyahu bitterly castigated Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech to the UN earlier Wednesday, and those who stayed in the room to hear it. “On the day that we pray to be inscribed in the Book of Life,” the prime minister said in reference to Yom Kippur, “the authoritarian Iranian regime takes every opportunity to condemn us to death.”
He added: “The Iranian oppressor chose to call in public, in front of the entire world, for our disappearance… That is a black day for those who chose to to remain in the room and listen to these accusatory words.”Netanyahu said his own speech on Thursday would constitute “our response,” and also pledged to “use every possible means” to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.Netanyahu’s speech, which aides said would contain “significant” content, might be tweaked until the last minute, officials told The Times of Israel. Netanyahu will be speaking shortly after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas addresses the gathering.

This speech will most definitely be worth watching. 

A report Tuesday in Maariv claimed Netanyahu would specify “red lines” which, if crossed by Iran, would prompt military action. But officials did not confirm this, although it is understood that the address will focus primarily on the Iranian threat, and go into detail about Tehran’s nuclear program and the specifics of the advances made by Iran despite international sanctions.“I will reiterate that the most dangerous country in the world must not be allowed to arm itself with the most dangerous weapon in the world,” Netanyahu said Sunday during the weekly cabinet meeting.Surprisingly, Netanyahu’s visit will not include a meeting with Obama, because of what the White House claimed were scheduling difficulties. At one point the White House said no such meeting had been sought, prompting the remarkable charge by an unnamed aide to the prime minister that the White House was lying.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu left hours after the end of Yom Kippur Wednesday night for New York to address the United Nations where he pledged to give a fitting response to Iran's desire to "sentence us to death."
Netanyahu wrote that on the day before Yom Kippur, Ahmadinejad – in comments to the US media  – said Israel would be eliminated.

Netanyahu is expected to go further than he has in the past in spelling out dangers posed by Iran and what needs to be done to stop the Islamic Republic, including stepping up sanctions and drawing red lines.
Netanyahu is expected to arrive in New York Thursday at 8 a.m., and give his speech at the UN five hours later. 
Netanyahu will be accompanied on the trip by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, who will be staying on longer in New York to hold meetings. Liberman has scheduled a long line of meetings, including with the prime minister of Ethiopia and numerous foreign ministers, including his counterparts from France, Russia, Spain, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Argentina, Panama, South Sudan and Kenya.

Whieeee Doogie:

Bet bomb squads and fire departments are gonna be on hand for tomorrow's speech. My money is on Bibi to smile and deliver a fire-breathing, in your face, absolutely explosive speech the all the Cowards-n-Chiefs of the world, not to mention those openly supporting Adolf-n-Associates.

Don't cha wish there were applause meters where we could support him.

After all this, I hope he toasts Obozo, pulls the curtain on his lieing-n-trechery and humiliates him. Shucks, at this point....what has he got to loose.

Robin said...

LOL, brother . . .cant stop laughing at your colorful description. Tomorrow will definitely be an exciting day to watch, alright.

Did anyone catch that Ahmadinejad brought up the Mahdi again today? It's just beyond creepy, knowing what lies ahead and listen to him describe his own version with a different outcome.

Dylan said...

Well it's his last speech at the UN as president of Iran. Who knows? Next september we might be wishing for Ahmedinejad to come back. Who knows what kind of crackpot is gonna get elected in June?

Scott said...

There was an article about that a week or so ago - I think I posted it (I'll see if I can find it, but there is so much news coming in so fast who knows) - anyway, he's 100% in like with Iran's current philosophy and he is the military guy who stamped down their protests a couple of years ago. In brutal fashion as well.

In addition to what Scott has said I think that Ahmedinejad truly thinks he is the 'ONE' who is called to hasten the coming of the Mahdi. With that said he may think that he might not have that opportunity any longer after the US election. Just a thought here. -Jec

Bibi said that

"Israel is a modern and strong state due to the strength and talent of our citizens and thanks to our belief in the justness of our path..."

He didn't give ANY glory to the God of Israel.

Ruh roe.....

Scott, since we are on 'moderation' again, why do we have the letter-number thingy to put in?

LOL, it takes me more than one try to get it right.....sad but true.

Sister JD, :)
Im kinda perplexed at your statement about Bibi? He is not a Rabbi, or an Old Testament Saint, he is the Leader of the nation of Israel. A Leader that God has raised up for this very moment in all of time. Bibi is a man of God without question, and makes Biblical references in his speeches. With your questions about the Shofar, I was surprised to read that your hubby is Jewish, but anyway, do you both follow the government officials statements in Israel? Specifically the Deputy Knesset Speaker, Danny Danon?

God Bless :)

JD Siegel said...

Hi Mrs C, no need to be perplexed. Bibi has many strong believers who actually have his ear, ie, and especially Joel Rosenberg. Bibi also has "bible quiet time" in his home. I am sure you know his son won a Tanach knowledge contest in Israel. I believe Bibi would be aware of and know better than most that to not give glory to God for the success and protection of Israel is a dangerous thing to do.
As to you being surprised I have a Jewish husband, I am not sure what you mean by that. He is a bible believing Jew, and a God lover, but not Da'ati, and not a believer that Jesus is the Messiah. As to a question about the shofar, I don't remember it.
And Danny Danon, I don't follow him, no.
