Bibi Netanyahu says what needs to be said at the UN

I’ve long been a Netanyahu fan — going back to the 1970s.  He is a brilliant man, a strong executive, an effective communicator, and, as he showed at the UN, he has a moral compass.  Obama could take lessons:

Be Sociable, Share!

    I share your admiration for Netanyahu. Great speaker too, has the presence of an actor, reminds me of Jose Ferrer in voice and cadence. But as for Obama: he doesn’t take lessons. Excuse the pun, I think the One is constitutionally incapable of taking lessons from any lesser mortal.

    I voted for Bibi in 1996. Unfortunately, Israeli politics being what they are (see attached) his term was short lived. I have great respect for the man. His speeches were and are always clear and on target.

    Of course, Bibi understands East from West unlike our man in the W.H.

    Speaking of a moral compass, a voice from just the second syllable – an ass. I have always referred to him as Ole Merde and for good reason/s (read attached) as well as personal ones.
    I had the unlucky draw of seating arrangements at an event in Jerusalem once upon a time and found myself seating several seats away from him. He was then the mayor of Jerusalem. It was just Mr. & Mrs.Ole Merde and myself on this one row. I had gotten up to say to hello to some friends and then reseated myself. The program was about to begin and for expediency reasons I decided to pass myself in front of them rather than walk around to the other end. The look on his face as I passed in front of him was ‘how dare you’. I gave him the same look back plus. He had no idea that I was there because the program was honoring my grandfather not him.

    A Teddy Kollack he wasn’t. A putz of the first degree he is and was and to piggy back on the ‘How dare You’ … his revelations get a ‘HOW DARED YOU’ from me.

    I saw a YouTube snippet of Bibi’s speech where he took the U.N. to task for even listening to Ahmadinejad’s vile speech.

    Aside from my loud “You go!” as I watched, I was reminded of Jesus’s admonition about casting pearls before swine.

    If you believed that dismantling settlements would give you peace, you were a fool.

    Only conducting punitive attacks against Palestinians, civilians or otherwise, will give you peace. Unless some foreign power comes in and changes the power dynamic.

    I always liked Bibi – a lion of a man! God Bless Israel!
