Netanyahu At UN: Saying Iran Doesn’t Practice Terrorism Is Like Saying Derek Jeter Never Played Shortstop For The New York Yankees


netanyahu-jeterFireworks erupted at the United Nations today as Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly this afternoon and charged that ISIS and Hamas are “branches of the same poisonous tree.”

In a United Nations often noted for a pro-Arab, anti-Israel bias, Netanyahu got a surprise round of applause for some of his remarks – particularly as he called Iran to task over terrorism.

“ISIS must be defeated, but to defeat ISIS and leave Iran as a threshold nuclear power, is to win the battle and lose the war,” Netanyahu told the UN General Assembly.

As he has for years, Netanyahu made an impassioned plea to stop Iran from getting the bomb. He used now-retired Yankees Captain Derek Jeter in his speech to illustrate his point.

“To say Iran doesn’t practice terrorism is like saying Derek Jeter never played shortstop for the New York Yankees,” Netanyahu said.

“The Middle East is in chaos,” Netanyahu continued. “States are disintegrating. And militant Islamists are filling the void. Israel cannot have territories from which it withdraws, taken over by Islamic militants yet again as happened in Gaza and Lebanon. That would place the likes of ISIS within mortar range – a few miles of 80 percent of our population. Now think about that: The distance between the 1967 lines and the suburbs of Tel Aviv is like the distance between the UN building here and Times Square.”

  1. To ???????,

    You don’t get it. He’s using his ??? to protect Hashem’s People, to the best of his ability. That’s also part of avodas Hashem.

    We all should strive to do Hashem’s will 100%, but unfortunately we are all lacking in some area or the other.

    I believe that Hashem will surely reward BB for the good that he does, as the Rambam spells out in a letter vis a vis ???? and ?????, that they were rewarded for the good deeds that they did.
