Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided to speak at the U.N. General Assembly next month in order to speak “the truth about Iran’s regime of terror,” which he said “constitutes the greatest threat to world peace.”
Netanyahu said his decision was in response to the Non-Aligned movement summit held in Iran.
“Today in Tehran the representatives of 120 countries heard a blood libel against the State of Israel and were silent,” Netanyahu said. “This silence must be stopped.”
The General Assembly will convene at the end of September. In order to speak Netanyahu will have to fly to New York immediately after the end of Yom Kippur.Daniel Tauber
