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.
