If Only G-d Was Mentioned
I always think Netanyahu gives excellent speeches. If only he would be the first prime minister to invoke G-d. I keep hearing that if we will not return of our own accord to Judaism G-d will make our situation so precarious we will have no choice but to turn to Him seeing there is no where else to turn to. I think with the Iranian nuclear threat and Hezbollah and Hamas and Islamic Jihad and Islamist Egypt and Islamist Turkey the PM should say the Jews survived all odds and still do this day while their enemies have disappeared because G-d is with us. Perhaps He wants us to show we do not feel "my own might have gotten me all this"

An excellent speech(plea).A lone voice crying in the wilderness of wilful ignorance. The question is,Will the world listen? Clouds of ignorance and denial are again sweeping over the tranquilized Chamberlains of this world. They falsely perceive a nuclear Iran as only an Israeli(Jewish) problem. Echoes of the past stalk us!!! I commend Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his speech to the UN.(teaching aid and all) Hope the world wakes up and act before it is too late!

Even though I don't believe it's possible to negotiate with people who are bent on murder, death, & destruction; I do strongly support Prime Minister Netanyahu, and what he said in his speech to the UN.

We have a lot to say to the UN and the World.
Let's hope this speech is the first step to our open and clear declaration of our Rights for the Land of Israel in Torah TERMS and on WHOLE and HOLY JERUSALEM,the more we try to compromise the less support we will have both in Heavens and on Earth.On the inner most level all the people of the planet bear a Spiritual Truth of the sizes and the places given to them by the Creator and the greedy wishes of some of them to have what doesn't belong to them make them such a big harm that if they had known it they would have left the territory which is called in Torah the Land of Israel and espessially Jerusalem immidiatly.We speak already about people that don't fit to their job or do not fit to their paternal functions,the same we should state on the level of the countries,their leaders and their attitude to their people.I feel very sorry for the common arabs who are suppressed and treaded as animals by their own leaders and the world should know that there is no even ONE ISRAELI ARAB who wishes the Palestinain country to be made( yes-to be made, because such a country or such a nation never existed and has no spiritual roots on the eternal level)The Arabs who live in Israel are the people who most afraid of the possibility of such a country,because none of them wish to find oneself under the leadership of murderers,they learned to live in Israel in democratic conditions,they study in our Universities,getting care in our hospitals and ENJOY all the benifits our country gives to its people,people of Gaza Strip DREAM of the days when they could work in Israel and bring good salary to their families,the Palestian leaders made their lives missirable and lacking any future and gave them only one choice -to die.I'm sure the common arabs WISH for their countries to be like ISRAEL and their is no even one person in Gaza Strip who wouldn't leave it if only they had such an opportunity.Those who fight Israel fight the future of their nation and support dictatorship and violence.

Superb speech - Obama needs to take a page from his book and finally take some action before it is too late i.e. "too little too late".
