As I write this blog, Israel\’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is speaking before the UN.
Many members pulled their delegations from the floor when he started.
But as he talked about the danger of a nuclear Iran, the spread of ISIS, and Israel\’s herculean attempts to protect Gazan civilians from its bombing of hamas targets – which is certainly more than hamas ever has done, there actually was applause – something that Israelis don\’t get very often.
He\’s some helluva speaker. And it helps that he\’s telling the truth.
More on the Netanyahu speech later.
