Startling moment at UN as Netanyahu says if forced, “Israel will stand alone”

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Frame grab: Fox News)I can’t watch Benjamin Netanyahu speak without being mesmerized. Maybe it’s the voice made for public speaking. Maybe it’s the earnestness. More likely it’s the timbre in the voice coupled with the knowledge Israel must feel very vulnerable right now.

There’s a personal element for me as well. Much of my heritage, my faith, and classical education comes directly from the Jewish faith, as it does for many Christians my age. Some may sneer at that statement; I don’t care because it’s true.

As Netanyahu looked at members in the assembly, there was a point in his address when he said, “Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons…If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone.” He said that in doing so, Israel would be defending “many, many others.” That nuanced statement references other Mideast countries who are also concerned about Iran’s objectives.

Netanyahu politely but firmly sets Obama straight

Old City of Jerusalem from CIA World Fact Book/US Government. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu set President Barack Obama straight on a matter of contention about Obama’s speech on Thursday. Appearing with Obama after they’d met, Netanyahu declared in a polite but firm manner that Israel will most definitely not go back to 1967 borders in negotiating peace terms with Palestinians.

Netanyahu had first thanked the president and First Lady Michelle Obama for their “gracious hospitality” during this visit. That hospitality sharply contrasted with what most perceived as a snub of the Israeli PM during a prior visit to Washington.

In a speech on Thursday, Obama endorsed the idea of Israel reverting to the 1967 borders.
