Once again Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demonstrated why he is the closest thing we have to a leader of the free world with his speech to the UN General Assembly in which he lambasted that body’s indifference to the Iran nuclear deal.
The most powerful moment of the speech came when he declared the response of most countries present was one of “utter silence, deafening silence.” Then Bibi went silent for 45 seconds and gave the UN General Assembly his death stare.
I suspect that President Obama has been the recipient of his death stare on more than one occasion.
When Netanyahu broke his silence he said, “Perhaps you can now understand why Israel is not joining you in celebrating this deal. If Iran’s rulers were working to destroy your countries, perhaps you’d be somewhat less enthusiastic about the deal. If Iran’s terror proxies were firing thousands of rockets at your cities, perhaps you’d be more measured in your praise.”
If only we had a leader who half of Bibi’s eloquence. If only we had a leader who had all of Bibi’s resolve to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
