I commented the other day on the abysmal speech that the Dear Leader, President Obama, gave to the General Assembly at the United Nations.
That speech was full of sophistry and the least realistic view of the world since that of former President Jimmah Carter.
I would like to contrast that with the speech of the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu one day later before the cast of the Freak Show known as the General Assembly.
I think that these words need to be repeated over, and over, and over to the Dear Leader, President Obama, and his minions as they try the power of the Dear Leader over the power of tyranny and terrorism.
I stand here today as the Prime Minister of Israel, the Jewish state, and I speak to you on behalf of my country and my people.
Nothing has undermined that central mission more than the systematic assault on the truth. Yesterday the President of Iran stood at this very podium, spewing his latest anti-Semitic rants. Just a few days earlier, he again claimed that the Holocaust is a lie.
This June, President Obama visited the Buchenwald concentration camp. Did President Obama pay tribute to a lie?Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium. To those who refused to come here and to those who left this room in protest, I commend you. You stood up for moral clarity and you brought honor to your countries.
But to those who gave this Holocaust-denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people, the Jewish people, and decent people everywhere: Have you no shame? Have you no decency?
A mere six decades after the Holocaust, you give legitimacy to a man who denies that the murder of six million Jews took place and pledges to wipe out the Jewish state.
What a disgrace! What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations! Perhaps some of you think that this man and his odious regime threaten only the Jews. You're wrong.
History has shown us time and again that what starts with attacks on the Jews eventually ends up engulfing many others.
Read the whole transcript that is linked.
Unlike the Dear Leader, President Obama, Mr. Netanyahu lives in the real world. And that real world is a dangerous neighborhood called the Middle East. It is not a hospitable place for those that are Jewish and believe that it is their God-given right for a place to call home. There are some really bad, dangerous and fanatical people in that neighborhood that would like nothing more than to wipe the State of Israel right off the map. And a few million more Jews will die, incinerated in a nuclear holocaust if the cretin in Tehran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has his way.
Mr. Netanyahu is not polyanish about the rough road that lies ahead. He realizes that his nation maybe the only ones with the wherewithal and stomach to do what may have to be done.
And that is take out the nuclear development going on right now in Iran. By utter, brute force.
By contrast, the Dear Leader, President Obama, really believes that all he has to do is give the little cretin, Ahmadinejad, some face time and somehow, all will be rosy.
Moral clarity helps to have a sane foreign policy. When that is thrown out the window as the Dear Leader, President Obama, seems to be doing, it really is a disgrace. When the Dear Leader says that the United States is no longer the beacon of freedom for the world, that we are as equal a nation as any other, that is a huge red flag. When the Dear Leader, President Obama, says such mealie pap as this comedy at his speech at the Freak Show:
No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed. No balance of power among nations will hold. The traditional division between nations of the south and north makes no sense in an interconnected world. Nor do alignments of nations rooted in the cleavages of a long gone Cold War.
Well, Dear Leader, unless the nations of the world cease to exist, that is beyond an unrealistic way to look at the world. A "world order" that makes the United States as equal as Iran, North Korea, Red China and Red Cuba is not worth the price, Dear Leader.
It is a balance of power that had kept the United States out of a hot war with the old Soviet Union. Does the Dear Leader, President Obama, want to end NATO? I mean, it is a result of the Cold War.
I only hope that the Dear Leader, President Obama, was just playing to the loony-left base that catapulted him to the Oval Office. He needed to go to the Buchenwald death camp with Prime Minister Netenyahu. And understood that if it were not for the moral clarity and leadership of the United States, the Nazis and their allies may have been able to achieve their perverse goals.
As I wrote in the headline, on foreign policy, too bad that Bibi Netanyahu is not our leader.
