Benjamin Netanyahu’s full speech at the U.N. today was a masterpiece. It is available at the U.N. website.  Listen to the whole thing, it’s about 45 minutes.

Here is a clip of most of it:

Contrast it with the delusional and dishonest speech of Mahmoud Abbas at the U.N. today which included this line:

I come before you today from the Holy Land, the land of Palestine, the land of divine messages, ascension of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the birthplace of Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), to speak on behalf of the Palestinian people in the homeland and in the Diaspora, to say, after 63 years of suffering of an ongoing Nakba: Enough.

Not the land of “Jews.”  Only Christians and Muslims.  And 63 years of suffering, not since the 1967 war but since from the 1948 War of Independence in Israel.

They still don’t accept Jewish historical ties to the land or the Jewish state.  That is the problem.

Update:  Here’s what Abbas told 200 Palestinian Americans just prior to his speech:

“They talk to us about the Jewish state, but I respond to them with a final answer: We shall not recognize a Jewish state,” Abbas said in a meeting with some 200 senior representatives of the Palestinian community in the US, shortly before taking the podium and delivering a speech at the United Nations General Assembly.
