We watched the Abbas speech and found it very good, very well-delivered. Compelling. He held our attention. We were very encouraged at the good applause he received from the people representing the people of the world. We consider it an historical speech.
Now for the Netanyahu speech.
Paraphrasing Netanyahu in the first two minutes:
Happening NOW RIGHT NOW. Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon now presides over the UN security council. This means IN EFFECT that a terror organization presides over the body entrusted with the world's security. You couldn't make this stuff up.
He makes a statement. It is not even a statement of fact, because Lebanon does not "preside over" the UN security council.
IN FACT, it's like this. Lebanon, Burkina Faso, Costa Rica, Croatia, Libya and Vietnam were elected non-veto-holding members of the 15-nation UN security council, which has the authority to impose sanctions and send peacekeeping forces.
NOT THE SAME as presiding over.
Certainly we could say that terror organizations do in fact preside over world (in)security, but we would not be talking about Hezbollah.
We think his arrogance and criminal insanity shine through perfectly clearly in the speech, especially when he delivers the more egregious lies with that little head pattern (lower, raise, stare, blink, lie).
In any case, the only reason we listened to this asshole is to find out what he projected as the problems in the world today, and of course we were not surprised to hear the usual litany: Lebanon, Hezbollah, Iran, nuclear weapons, militant Islam, Gaza, Hamas, etc.
OF COURSE he failed to mention the Mossad, and what they may have been doing to wreck the "theory" of how peace actually works. Poor Israel did all these nice things, withdrawing from land that doesn't belong to them in the first place, and they did not get peace in return, but war. So regrettable. So confusing then? Not really. The problem is the same problem everywhere in the world with the out-of-control intelligence and military services playing a video game with real people on the ground, as Netanyahu knows perfectly well, as these people CREATE the REALITY ON THE GROUND that he LOVES TO COMPLAIN ABOUT because it JUSTIFIES WHAT HE WANTS TO DO.
Also, since Netanyahu brings up Gilad Shalit, let's remember that Israel holds over five thousand Palestinian in prison, and has stolen organs from Palestinians in the past.
Count on Bibi to leave out the important bits.
