Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the Iranian nuclear deal during his speech at the U.N. General Assembly, ripping them over their “deafening silence.”
“70 years afte the murder of six million Jews, Iran’s leaders threaten to destroy my country, to murder my people and yet the respons from this body, from nearly every one of the governments represented here, the response from every one of you here, utter silence,” he said. “Deafening silence.”
Netanyahu said nothing, simply staring intensely and silently at the crowd of world leaders for nearly a minute.
“If Iran’s rulers were working to destroy your countries, perhaps you’d be somewhat less enthusiastic about the deal,” he said. “If Iran’s terror proxies were firing thousands of rockets at your cities, perhaps you’d be more measured in your praise.”
“And if this deal were unleashing anuclear arms race in your neighborhood perhaps you would be more reluctant to celebrate.”
