I love Benjamin Netanyahu! He is clearly the New World Leader in my eyes. His speech at the United Nations was one of the few worth listening to—-and heeding.
I have always followed the life and politics of Netanyahu…Benjamin anyway. His younger brother was killed in the raid on a hi-jacked El Al (Israeli) airliner at Entebbe airport in Africa. The raid was a success, even with the deaths of several Israeli rangers..highly trained troops who killed the hijackers and rescued those on board the El Al airliner. It was after that attack on hijackers at Entebbe that we heard little more of any hijackings on Israel’s airlines. Terrorists and Hijackers understand one thing…..superior force and the killing of their own people. Sad but true—-but diplomacy and "Kum-Bah-Yah" attempts at negotiations just do not mean diddly- squat to those perpetrators or pure unadulterated evil in this world and that includes the present generation of Islamic extremists who practice, support and encourage terrorist attacks on the Innocent, like all those who have died in Terrorist attacks over the past decade or longer….starting with the U.S. Marines who died in an attack on a Marine Baracks in Lebanon in the early 1980s…the throwing overboard of an elderly Jewish man on board the ship Achille Lauro in that same time frame….the attacks against the embassies in Africa…the first attack on the world trade center in the early 1990′s and the terrorist attack on the American naval vessel harbored in a Yemeni port with the many lives of American sailors lost…culminating in the surprise attacks with airliners on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and the unsuccessful American airliner headed for Washington DC when its passengers led by the man whose last words were "Let’s roll!" turned on the Terrorists and caused the airliner to crash in rural Pennsylvania. All the latter events occurred in September 2001 which led to the declaration of the "War On Terror".
Now at the lastest UN general assembly meetings, too many so called "leaders" ranted hysterically. (Libya’s Ghaddafi and Iran’s unspellable Terrorist leader…good old "A.A." who kills his own people when they rise up against the fixed election in which he declared himself the winner again.) Or else they denounce the nations who act against Terrorists. Gaddafi’s so- called speech was so bizarre and so lengthy that even his own Libyan interpreter collapsed after saying he "could not go on anymore". It has been reported that he suffered a seizure after trying to translate his leader’s insane ravings about Swine Flu and the attacks of 9-11- 2001 as well as Ghaddafi’s other wild ravings. How the United Nations can even allow a murdurer like Ghaddafi to have a hearing at the UN is unbelievable….he who sent his minions out to place that bomb on the Pan Am airplane …a United States airliner whose passengers were blown up in mid- air over Scotland in December 1988 and then the same Insane Libyan leader welcomes the Lockerbie bomber home with celebrations at the airport in Tripoli just a few weeks ago….is beyond insane. The United Nations, at its birth in 1945, began with the aim of stopping wars and conflicts in the world by cooperative efforts of all the nations who belonged. But now—-the UN is a helpless, hopeless, gigantic bureaucracy that cannot stop even its own leader (Kofi Annan) from making off with funds for the Iraqi people in the "food for oil" effort! His (Annan’s son) was caught with his filthy fingers in the UN "cookie jar" also but no punishment or jail time was ever levied against the father and son, both purveyors of the highest corruption of all time at the UN.
Our own American leader, President Obama, sunk so low as to refer to the Israeli "occupiers" in their own Promised Land. No current politician or so called diplomat even has a grain of understanding about the true history of the homeland of the Jews—-except for the New World Leader, Benjamin Netanyahu. His speech on Thursday contained the strongest and most wisdom – filled words of any of the previous speechifiers, including Barack Obama. Parts of Netanyahu’s speech are worth repeating.
Netanyahu opened with a reprimand of the Holocaust deniers. He held in his hands for all to see the actual documents from Germany, preserved by German governments since WW 2 to record for history, the plans laid by the Nazis for the extermination of the world’s Jews plus the actual building plans for one or more of the death camps built by Hitler’s regime.
Quoting Netanyahu: "Yesterday the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium. To those who refused to come here and to those who left this room in protest, I commend you. You stood up for moral clarity, and you brought honor to your countries. But to those who gave this Holocaust denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people, the Jewish people, and decent people everywhere: Have you no shame? Have you no decency?"
Netanyahu pointed out that one-third of all Jews died in the conflagration we know as he Holocaust, and it included several members of his own family—-his wife’s grandparents, her father’s two sisters and three brothers and all the aunts and uncles and cousins…all of them were murdured by the Nazis in the WW2 death camps and gas chambers.
Another series of quotes from Netanyahu’s UN speech: "THIS Iranian regime is fueled by an extreme fundamentalism that burst onto the world scene three decades after ago after lying dormant for centuries. In the past 30 years, this fanaticism has swept the globe with a murdurous violence and cold impartiality in its choice of victims. It has callously slaughtered Moslems and Christians, Jews and Hindus and many others……The primitivism of the 9th century ought to be no match for the progress of the 21st century…..But if the most primitive fanaticism can acquire the most deadly weapons, the march of history could be reversed for a time. And like the belated victory over the Nazis, the forces of progress and freedom will prevail only after a horrific toll of blood and fortune has been extracted from mankind."
Netanyahu sees what the future of nuclear weapons in the hands of a regime like that of Iran– who would no doubt, hand them out to other Terrorist entities…would wreak on the world of all mankind. To contemplate such events is almost more than one can bear to think of.
Many Christians …and other religions…which anticipate a final great world conflict in which the nations of the world come against Israel …. can detect prophecies being fulfilled before our eyes with current events unfolding every day, week, and month. For Christians, one only has to review the prophecies in the final New Testament book , Revelation, or in the book of the prophet Daniel, to see how the Hand of God is working even now in the current affairs of mankind. Such things can also be denied..like those who deny the Holocaust, but both groups of people who are the deniers are treading a dangerous path of personal destruction… ultimately.
Netanyahu is a man for his age….a man put in a leadership position for the perilous times we are witnessing. I do not believe that his leadership in this world is an accident. He is the best hope for world leadership of free nations at this time. There is not another like him in the entire panoply of world nations and peoples.
