Netanyahu’s UN Demagoguery
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
He’s Trump’s alter ego, two despicable rogue actors, threatening world peace, belonging in prison, not high office.
Their deplorable UN General Assembly addresses made painful listening, remarks responsible leaders wouldn’t touch, disgraceful hate-filled demagoguery.
Netanyahu failed attempting to portray rogue state Israel as a responsible nation. The whole world knows otherwise, terrorizing Palestinians for decades, threatening neighboring states, at war with Syria without declaring it.
As long as its ruthless policies continue, no one is safe regionally or anywhere else. Israel is nuclear armed and dangerous.
It maintains stockpiles of banned chemical and biological weapons. Its ICBM capability can strike nations far distant from its undeclared borders, kept that way to expand them.
Netanyahu’s claim about the world “embracing Israel” rang hollow. Over 30 nations have no diplomatic relations with its regime – Bolivia, Cuba, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, North Korea, Pakistan, Syria, Venezuela, and most Arab League ones among them.
He blasted UN policy toward Israel. Truth-telling irks him, unable to suppress Israel’s lawless agenda, worse than earlier on his watch.
Disgracefully, he calls justifiable criticism of Israel anti-Semitic, yesterday saying its global “epicenter (is) right here at the UN.”
He praised Trump’s deplorable UN address, speaking ahead of himself, calling his disgraceful remarks “courageous and forthright.”
Like other times in UN addresses and elsewhere, he lashed out at Iran, spewing venom, repeating long ago exposed Big Lies.
“Iran vows to destroy my country,” he roared. False!
“Iran is conducting a campaign of conquest across the Middle East, and Iran is developing ballistic missiles to threaten the entire world.” Another disgraceful Big Lie.
Netanyahu repeats them so often, he’s likely no longer able to distinguish between facts and fiction – including falsely claiming Iran seeks nuclear weapons, despite the important Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) he wants abandoned, and its abhorrence of these weapons, wanting the region free from them.
No nations threaten Israel. The regime is its own worst enemy. Netanyahu barely stopped short of declaring war on Iran, showing the menace he represents, revealing his true colors in front of other world leaders and officials.
Israel deplores peace and stability. Netanyahu lied claiming otherwise. Palestinians understand most of all, enduring his viciousness daily, human rights activists persecuted the same way, arrested and imprisoned for doing the right things.
Netanyahu turned truth on its head, claiming Israel’s “light is shining across the continents, bringing hope and salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Israel is an apartheid regime, an international outlaw, a menacing scourge, terrorizing Palestinians, endangering neighboring states, threatening regional and world peace.
Netanyahu is a world-class thug, an unindicted war criminal representing the worst of rogue state leadership, exceeding Sharonian evil, waging slow-motion genocide on Palestine – with full US-led Western support, accountability not forthcoming.
