Following President Obama’s address on Tuesday in which the Iranian nuclear issue and the drive for peace between Israelis and Palestinians was discussed, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will speak to the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday, and according to the Maariv newspaper, Netanyahu is expected to address in detail the red lines he believes the international community should lay out for Tehran to ensure that a nuclear weapon does not fall into the hands of the Iranian regime.

Netanyahu is expected to discuss the developments of Iranian uranium enrichment, why its necessary to ensure Iran does not attain a nuclear weapon, and why he believes clear red lines, which if crossed would invoke a military response, should be made clear to Iran by the international community.

In an exclusive interview with the Israeli business publication Globes, Netanyahu said his main concern will be ensuring the safety of his country while addressing the General Assembly in New York.

    As an American living in Israel for over 6 years, I have experienced two wars, and many rockets from Gaza. Every citizen, no matter what country, deserves the right to live in peace. Children should not fear rockets; nor, should moms send their children off to war.

    I like the replay of PM Netanyahu in regard of is pray request to God. Jews people need to do the same and ask the Maker for they needs. As a Christian, Jesus the Son of Man is the maker as is well state in Genesis.
    Historically the Jews had received miraculous salvation from enemy by God.
    Alliance-protection with world power had been proved historically a disaster, only the change of the hearth of Jews will open the way for the deliverance promised in Jesus Christ the Messiah.
    Jesus had clearly state love your enemy and pray.
    Israel in my understanding is getting closer to the week as had been reborn in 1948 that counting a week as 70 years as in Daniel prophecy will be 2018.
    If Jews are seriously, like some prominent one at the time of the Republic of Venice had done, many years ago and conclude that they had to embrace Jesus Way, they will study the scripture that are pointing to the fulfillment in Jesus be born and resurrected. If keep instead go and trust in a wall build by human hand, is not much hope.
    Or are you still believed the false priest -leader of Jesus time? They said that he was not God as was not from Bethlehem, but they know the realty! Jesus was born there! They decide to ignore as they wanted the power and status quo! Were the Jews believers at Jesus time mad? They had been the fonder of Jesus Way and still are.
    Humanity is God creation and we must love all human been, they are the Iranian, Palestinians terrorist too, pray for Jesus to change them.
    Last week Jews medical had restored a Palestinian life, which is the way, Old Testament 2King6:15-23 (Elisha) so he threw a big banquet for them and they ate and drank. Then he sent them back to their master. After that no Syrian raiding parties again invaded the land of Israel.
    God love Israel
