A few words from Netanyahu

I respect the man, though not always in agreement with his policies he is a reasoned voice when it comes to the refugees.  Here are a few more words from him at the UN.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Addresses U.N. General Assembly, Says Palestinians Are Not Interested in Peace  

In addressing the U.N. General Assembly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reacted to Palestine’s request for statehood. Netayahu said, “It’s here, year after year that Israel, is unjustly singled out for condemnation. It’s singled out for condemnation more often than all the nations of the world combined.  

Netanyahu said that he didn’t come to the United Nations for applause, but instead came to speak the truth. He continued, saying, “The truth is that Israel wants peace. The truth is that I want peace. The truth is that in the Middle East, at all times, but especially during these turbulent days, peace must be anchored in security.”He argued that peace can’t be achieved through U.N. resolutions, but only through direct negotiations, which Palestine isn’t interested in.

Netanyahu went onto describe militant Islam as a “malignancy is growing between East and West,” that seeks to destroy.He also said that Iran must be stopped, for if it’s not, “we will all face the spectra of nuclear terrorism and the Arab Spring would soon become an Iranian Winter. That would be a tragedy.”
