Bibi’s Bomb Stole The Show

Troodler-101212

The use of visual aids is not new to the UN. In 1962, during the Cuban missile crisis, Adlai Stevenson, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, publicly displayed for the first time aerial photographs of Soviet missiles in Cuba. In 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell presented satellite images and a vial containing white powder intended to look like anthrax in order to make his point that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. In 2009, then-Libyan leader Muammar Khaddafi held a copy of the UN Charter aloft, tore it up, and dramatically tossed it aside during his UN address.

Over the years, Netanyahu has shown a propensity for utilizing visual aids. For example, in 2009 he brandished a copy of the blueprints from Auschwitz as he denounced Ahmadinejad’s statements that the Holocaust never happened.

In retrospect, the Bibi Bomb was a perfect public relations tool. With his red marker, Netanyahu displayed a stroke of PR genius. On the international stage, with the world watching, his explosive visual aid and magical pen got the entire world talking about the threat of a nuclear Iran.

In any event, Mr. Netanyahu after the election sought to soften his statement on Palestinian statehood and apologized for what he conceded were remarks that “offended some Israeli citizens and offended members of the Israeli Arab community.”

A worthy idea any way you look at it.

Whether it emanates from world leaders or media reports, there is a barrage of public opinion chastising Israel for policies that supposedly impede the path to peace in the Middle East.

With the dramatic stroke of a red marker, the “Bibi Bomb” became an instant sensation.

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stood before world leaders on September 27 at the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly, he faced a colossal challenge. Despite the vocal skepticism of those who feel the situation is not as dire as he maintains, Netanyahu has been steadfast in his insistence that Iran is well on its way to stockpiling enough enriched uranium to construct a nuclear bomb.
