After leaders of two-thirds of the world's countries listened silently to Iranian attacks against Israel on Thursday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced he would address the UN General Assembly next month.
"In Tehran the representatives of 120 countries listened to a blood libel against Israel and were quiet. That silence needs to stop, therefore I will travel to the UN's General Assembly and in a clear voice speak the truth about the Iranian terrorist regime that represents the biggest threat to world peace," Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu is scheduled to leave for the UN on Wednesday night September 27, immediately after Yom Kippur, and return to Israel Sunday, September 30, just before the onset of Succot. Although there has been talk of a meeting at the UN with US President Barack Obama, no meeting has yet been officially announced.
