What Obama Did During Netanyahu’s UN Speech Is The Ultimate Slap In Israel’s Face

Even as President Obama has been working as hard as he can to make the Middle East a more dangerous place by arming Iran with nuclear weapons, he also just snubbed the only true ally we have in the region by refusing to allow the top members of the US delegation to the UN to attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech earlier this week.

As Netanyahu fought for freedom, democracy, and liberty, Obama predictably turned away, refusing to allow our own officials to hear the Prime Minister’s speech.

To give our top officials an excuse to miss the speech, Breitbart News reports that Obama called Secretary of State John Kerry and the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Power, into a video conference only moments before the PM started his speech.

“Ambassador Power and Secretary Kerry were unable to attend Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before the General Assembly because they were called into a meeting with President Obama, which they participated in via video teleconference,” a State Department Official reported.

So, as Netanyahu represented the free world, Obama and his most senior foreign policy officials appeared to be absent.

The long-serving Israeli Prime Minister notably stared down those in attendance at the U.N. for a blistering 44 seconds of silence to symbolize the “utter silence, deafening silence” given to Iran’s constant threat that at some point, it intends to murder every Jew in the world.

Because of Iran’s constant boasts of genocide, Netanyahu noted, “Perhaps you can now understand why Israel is not joining you in celebrating this deal.”

It is no wonder that Obama and his top officials wanted to skip the speech. Since Obama is the biggest proponent of giving Iran the tools to carry out its threat of annihilating Israel, it isn’t likely that Obama was interested in being scolded over what Israel feels is his complicit part in Iran’s plans.

Watch: Netanyahu Makes A Bizarre Action During UN Speech That World Leaders Can’t Possibly Ignore

Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu delivered yet another impressive and emotional speech at the General Assembly of the United Nations (UNGA), taking the world body to task about its obsession with the Jewish State and its sheepish acceptance of the nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers.

“We see a world celebrating this bad deal, rushing to embrace and do business with a regime openly committed to our destruction,” The Israeli PM said.

Netanyahu took an unusual step to pause during his speech after he compared the reaction of the international community to Iran’s repeated vows to annihilate Israel to what happened in the world more than seventy years ago when the Nazi’s murdered six million Jews.

“Seventy years after the murder of six million Jews, Iran’s rulers promise to destroy my country, to 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,” Netanyahu told the UNGA.

After he lambasted the United Nations for its deafening silence in response to the Iranian threats the Israeli PM stood at the podium of the General Assembly and stared silently at the delegates of UN member states for 45 seconds to make his point.

Netanyahu gave the General Assembly several examples of recent threats to exterminate Israel made by Iranian leaders and showed the delegates a new book written by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, that deals with a detailed plan to destroy Israel.

He detailed how Iran has used the period of the final negotiations about a nuclear deal with six world powers to supply new sophisticated weaponry to its proxy armies at Israel’s border and to boost weapon supply to the forces of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Netanyahu also told the UNGA that Iran was behind Hezbollah terror plots that have recently been discovered in Kuwait, Jordan and Cyprus.

Netanyahu said that the amount of explosives found in the Cyprus terror plot was enough to commit a devastating act of terror comparable to the Oklahoma attack in the United States and warned that Iran is currently preparing dozens of other attacks including several in the northern hemisphere.

The Israeli PM said that the nuclear agreement will not turn the rapacious tiger (Iran) into a kitten and added that when bad behavior is rewarded it only gets worse.

“The greatest danger facing our world is the coupling of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. The deal with Iran could be “the marriage certificate of this unholy union,” Netanyahu added.

At the end of his remarks on Iran, Netanyahu again made clear that Israel is not bound by the nuclear agreement with Iran and threatened the international community that Israel will never allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons.

He told the Iranian leaders that their plans to annihilate Israel will fail and mentioned empires that had tried to destroy the Jewish nation throughout its history of three thousand years but vanished from the face of earth while the Jewish people returned home and are alive and kicking. “Am Yisrael Chai,” (The people of Israel is alive), Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu briefly touched upon the speech of PA President Abbas who addressed the UNGA yesterday.

Abbas had accused Israel of seeking to change the status quo on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem which is today home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Mosque of Omar (Dome of the Rock) and threatened to terminate the Oslo accords when Israel continues to breach the agreements.

Netanyahu said that Israel does everything possible to maintain the status quo on the Temple Mount including a ban on Jewish prayer and accused the Palestinians of smuggling explosives into the mosque and of violent acts against Christian and Jewish visitors on the Temple Mount.

“President Abbas, stop spreading lies about Israel’s alleged intentions on the Temple Mount. Israel is fully committed to maintaining the status quo there. What President Abbas should be speaking out against are the actions of militant Islamists who are smuggling explosives into the al-Aqsa Mosque and trying to prevent Jewish and Christian visitors from entering the site,” Netanyahu said. He added that this was the real threat to this sacred site.

Netanyahu told the UNGA that “Israel expects the Palestinian Authority to abide by its commitments,” implying that it is the PA that is in breach of the Oslo Accords.

“The Palestinians should not walk away from peace,” he said. Netanyahu repeated his offer to Abbas, to return to the negotiation table immediately “without preconditions.” He said that it would not be easy to reach an accord but that both leaders owe this to their peoples. The UN can help advance peace but not by imposing solutions and not encourage Palestinian rejectionism, he added.

At the end of his speech, Netanyahu told the delegates that the UN should rid itself of its obsessive bashing of Israel. He gave one example of this obsession. Despite four years of horrific violence in Syria during which more than 250,000 people lost their life, the UN continues to adopt resolutions that condemn Israel and not the Syrian regime. Just last year the UNGA adopted twenty resolutions against Israel and just one resolution about the ‘savage slaughter’ in Syria, Netanyahu said.

He called upon the UN to finally stand with Israel because “Israel is not just defending itself but you.”

Just two hours after Netanyahu delivered his speech at the General Assembly of the United Nations, Palestinian terrorists killed two Israeli citizens near the village of Itamar in the northern West Bank (Shomron). Israeli paramedics found the bodies of two Jewish Israelis who were murdered by gunshots in the chest in a car along the road between Alon Moreh and Itamar. Four children who apparently traveled with the victims escaped unharmed and were brought to the Itamar junction where they were examined by doctors who had arrived at the scene.

World Leader Goes To The UN And Drops Bombshell Claim About Obama Admin And Iran

Did a former Obama administration official attempt to get Argentina to provide Iran with nuclear fuel? That’s what Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner claimed during the U.N. General Assembly on Monday.

Gary Samore, former White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction, did indeed visit Argentina in 2010, as Kirchener claimed. Kirchener also claimed that Samore asked Argentina to provide nuclear fuel to Iran.

Samore did provide the context of his request in a statement to TheBlaze.

Kirchener also said that Argentina’s government requested the transfer request in writing (as is protocol); but after that, the Minister of Foreign Affairs never heard from Samore again.

Kirchener stated at the UN: “They came to ask us, Argentines, to provide the Islamic Republic of Iran with nuclear fuel. Rohani was not in office yet. It was Ahmadinejad’s administration and negotiations had already started.”

As previously mentioned, Samore did provide context for his request to TheBlaze.

He stated the story that he went to Argentina and made the request is “true,” and then said:

As I recall, Minister Timmerman told me that Argentina could not participate in the project because of Iran’s refusal to cooperate in the AMIA investigation. I said that I understood the political sensitivities and accepted that Argentina could not be part of the project.

We subsequently approached France, which agreed to manufacture the fuel for the Tehran Research Reactor.

In October 2009, Iran agreed to the deal: Iran would ship 1,200 kilograms of low enriched uranium hexafluoride (less than 5%) to Russia; Russia would further enrich the uranium to 19.5% and ship it to France for fabrication into research reactor fuel, which would then be shipped to Iran.

From Washington’s standpoint, the objective of the agreement was to remove most of Iran’s low enriched uranium stockpile at that time and therefore make it more difficult for Iran to produce weapons grade enriched uranium.

He added, though, that the deal “fell through,” as Iran’s Supreme Leader Khameini rejected the deal.

Facebook CEO Caught On Hot Mic Saying Something That Could Have A Huge Impact On Users’ News Feed

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were caught on a hot mic at the United Nations on Saturday discussing the removing of certain posts from the prolific site.

Merkel brought up the subject of anti-immigrant posts appearing on the German version of Facebook, as the country grapples with how to handle the largest refugee crisis since World War II.

“We need to do some work.” Zuckerberg says. The German chancellor presses him. “Are you working on this?” she asks in English. “Yeah,” the Facebook CEO responds before the introductory remarks of the lunch meeting cuts off their conversation.

As Germany seeks to assimilate potentially millions of Syrian refugees, not everyone in the country is accepting them with open arms.

Reuters reported earlier this month that Facebook intends to cooperate with the German government in eliminating ‘hate postings’ regarding the refugees. Specifically, the social media site will partner with the German Internet watchdog Voluntary Self-Monitoring of Multimedia Service Providers to identify offending posts.

“We are committed to working closely with the German government on this important issue,” Facebook spokeswoman Debbie Frost said via e-mail to BloombergBusiness. “We think the best solutions to dealing with people who make racist and xenophobic comments can be found when service providers, government and civil society all work together to address this common challenge.”

Bloomberg international correspondent Hans Nichols said that the German government believes “if Facebook polices nude photos [from its site], then why can’t they police racist or xenophobic comments?”

Netanyahu Just Revealed What ‘The World Needs To Know’ About Israel. Let’s Hope Obama’s Listening

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will speak to the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday, addressing topics like the Iran nuclear deal, Syria and growing tensions with Palestinians over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

“Whenever I speak at the UN, it is a great merit and responsibility to tell the nations of the world the truth about Israel, about our country,” Netanyahu told reporters in Israel.

He said there are a number of issues of importance to the security of Israel, with a top concern being the deal struck with Iran. Netanyahu fought against any deal with the neighboring country.

“The world needs to know how the citizens of Israel feel about the nuclear deal with Iran and what we expect of the international community following the agreement,” Netanyahu said. “In my speech, I shall also refer, of course, to Israel’s policy on Syria and the dangers that lurk on our northern border.”

The prime minister has scheduled meetings with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon during his visit in the United States. It is expected that Netanyahu will talk about peace in the Middle East and the ongoing dispute over the Temple Mount.

Israeli officials closed the Temple Mount to both Muslims and Jews in October 2014 amid rising tensions, but reopened it to Muslim prayers the next day. Palestinians said last fall that closing the Mount would result in war. While the Temple Mount is Israel’s most sacred place, Jews are not allowed to pray there. Muslims, who also lay claim to it, are allowed to worship at the Dome of the Rock, and the Temple Mount is open to tourism. Netanyahu said he is committed to maintaining the status quo regarding the Temple Mount. However, Muslim activists are harassing Jewish people visiting the holy site.

“The Palestinian rioters at the temple Mount that bring in weapons, pipe bombs and fireworks – they are the ones who hurt the sanctity of the place and breach the status quo. Every day that passes makes it obvious that Israel is an island of stability in the Middle East,” he commented.

Netanyahu met with Israeli activists over the past year to hear their concerns and listen to their views on worshiping on the Mount, but has maintained there will be no change in policy. Israel’s policies regarding the Temple Mount have been in place since 1967.
