Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu speaks to the UNGA, Sept. 29, 2014.
AP’s Matt Lee’s tweet makes it look as though Netanyahu’s UN speech merely made fun of the UN Human Rights Commission.

Not surprisingly, there were and are no members of the press corps who made any effort to recast the negative press characterizations as lacking context or any efforts to ask a question intended to elicit a fair-minded response to Netanyahu’s speech. There never is.

  1. Shema (Hebrew “hear or listen”) everyone. If you don’t say no to Islam, stop the spread of this disease, and reject its ideology in your country, state or town. Then this ideology will eat your country, state or town away like cancer. All freedoms of speech will be gone, your women belittled, will be treated as inferior, your blood will flow from those who refuse to convert to this sickening religion. If you think this is not true, feel free to contact the nations, and ask the people about this so called religion of peace. I am only a watchman sounding the alarm, warning you as to your destination if you do not act swiftly. I do pray for the people of Islam, that they would come to their senses, and open their eyes to their religion, and repent, and flee fast and long out of this abomination. Say no NOW to Islam, before it’s to late. G-d have mercy on our souls.

  2. So many seem blind to what is taken place in Dearborn….in Tenn… the number of Islamic jihad camps the street killings ! The fact that at least 12 of Obamas high seated cab… are in fact Islamic breeders. Islamic flags put up..sharia courts… women ..girls being talked into this sick life style; If we do not rise up and crush this unholy evil asap… we will surly die.

  3. Netanyahu's speech was masterful. He told the truth and those knowledgeable about militant Islam know that. The State Department is filled with incompetents, political hacks, and fools – fronting for the wrong team. American Patriots need not apply.

  4. They all have their agendas and we know it. We get assaulted with from all sides and take it all with a grain of salt. The media here and abroad tends to assume we are so naive that they can shape our views. We do listen to the speeches but we tune out the talking heads when the day is done. In regards to Netanyahu’s speech? Well I can't speak for all Americans but I live in East Texas and the remark I’ve heard a time or two since his speech is “Netanyahu for President”

  5. The news media in the US has no real credibility with the American people. Those days are long gone. We don’t read newspapers or watch the nightly newscasts anymore. We have ‘news’ reporting in all flavors, left, right and everything in between. They all have their agendas and we know it. We get assaulted from all sides but know to take it all with a grain of salt. The media here tends to assume we are so naive that they can shape our views. Don't confuse what you see in the American media with the American people. We listen to speeches and tune out the talking heads trying to tell us what we just heard with our own ears. In regards to Netanyahu’s speech? I live in East Texas and I can't speak for all Americans but the remark I’ve heard a time or two since his speech is “Netanyahu for President”
