Bibi to UN: You’re a ‘moral farce’
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used the occasion of being at the United Nations to blast the organization.
Netanyahu said Thursday to the United Nations General Assembly debate in New York that the government in Jerusalem will not accept any attempt by the UN to dictate terms to Israel.
“The road to peace runs through Jerusalem and Ramallah, not New York,” he stressed.
The prime minister turned to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s speech to the plenum earlier on Thursday, urging the PA leader to address Israel’s Knesset instead of condemning it at the UN. Netanyahu added that he was prepared to address the Palestinian people in Ramallah.
The premier opened his speech by slamming the “moral farce” of the United Nations, before telling the assembled diplomats and world leaders that the “obsession” and voting patterns over Israel will change, “and sooner than you think,” thanks to increasing Israeli cooperation with foreign nations across the world.
