A Bold Speech at the United Nations

Today the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, climbed the Podium of the United Nations to address the General Assembly. His address was a stinging indictment of the ideology of Hate preached by the likes of Iran, Libya, and elsewhere in the World. It was an address that proclaimed a love of Freedom and the Truth.

It was also an address that highlighted the moral bankruptcy of the United Nations. An organization founded on hallowed principles of Freedom and Human Rights is today, a mockery of those principles. The very nations that are indicted for the worst abuses of Human Rights are the celebrated and the virtuous and strong are mocked. The United Nations is a disgrace that has failed to live up to its lofty ideals.

Prime Minister Netanyahu, like President George W. Bush before him, displayed incredible courage in speaking the Truth to a den of vipers.
