PM's speech to the UN reflects 90 percent of Israeli electorate
Following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday, officials in Israel and around the world are responding, with many in Israel feeling that the prime minister addressed the most important issues facing Israelis today.But they won't. They never even respected the Oslo accords to begin with, and Norway didn't want them to either.
Most of Netanyahu's 43-minute speech was focused on the threat posed by Iran. Toward the end, he responded to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' U.N. speech on Wednesday, in which Abbas said recent Israeli security actions at Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem could ignite a religious war.
Netanyahu told the General Assembly that Abbas should stop "spreading lies about Israel's alleged intentions on the Temple Mount," and return to direct negotiations to secure peace between the Israelis and Palestinians.
Here's a transcript of Netanyahu's speech on The Algemeiner. And, here's another recording on C-Span.
