The Prime Minister's Office said Monday Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech at the United Nations' General Assembly on Thursday will be a "dramatic" speech, directly tackling three main issues: the Iranian nuclear threat, the regional peace process and the recent UN Human Rights' Council-sanctioned Goldstone report on Operation Cast Lead. Netanyahu will stress the threat a nuclear-armed Iran poses to the entire world and not only to Israel. If Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stays in the hall during the prime minister's speech, he will hear Netanyahu say that his country threatens the entire free world, democracy and the Middle East. Netanyahu is also expected to call for another deadline to cap diplomatic engagement with Iran. Netanyahu will also slam the report commissioned by the UNHCR and written by a small team headed by South African former judge Richard Goldstone. He is expected to say the report ties the hands of democracies fighting terrorism and rewards the terrorists' modes of operation.
