Here is complete video of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Speech today before AIPAC (“American Israel Public Affairs Conference”), just one day before he addresses a Joint Session of Congress at the nation’s Capitol.
Netanyahu praised the U.S. – Israel relationship, and vowed that it will remain strong despite differences on how to deal with Iran’s Nuclear ambitions. He thanked President Obama for all he has done, and said his speech tomorrow before Congress was in no way meant as disrespect towards him. However, Netanyahu made it clear that Israel will defend herself. He said his intention with tomorrow’s speech is to “speak up about a potential deal with Iran that could threaten the survival of Israel.” He said Iran is the “foremost state sponsor of terrorism in the world.” Netanyahu pointed out that Iran is on record as saying they will use Nuclear Weapons to destroy Israel, and he vowed, “We must not let that happen.”
Netanyahu powerfully reminded everyone that for 2000 years, the Jewish people were “utterly powerless” to defend themselves in the face of threats. “Well, No more!,” Netanyahu said. “The days when the Jewish People are passive in the face of threats to annihilate us, those days are over!”
A great speech by a great man. We can only wish that one day, the United States will have a leader like Benjamin Netanyahu again.
