Netanyahu, the King of Israel Public Relations
No matter how anyone who supports the Israel feels, there’s no question that Prime Minister Netanyahu is an amazing spokesperson for the Jewish State. Watching his address today to the Joint Members of Congress was inspiring and chilling.
Whilst I, and many others may not agree with every word, he included many wise statements which should be heard and absorbed around the world:
1. “Of 300 million Arabs in the Arab world, the only ones who are truly free and live in a democratic country are the Arabs who live in Israel. Israel is not what is wrong about the Middle East, Israel is what is right about the Middle East.”
My 2 cents: Why doesn’t the world act for gay rights, feminism rights, and non torture amongst other things throughout the Arab world ? Where’s Obama’s outrage on these issues ?
2. “America must never permit Iran to develop nuclear weapons.” “Jerusalem must remain under Israel’s sovereignty to ensure all religions can continue to pray in Jerusalem.”
Classic Netanyahu – Tie America and Israel together. One wonders how many churches and other religions function freely in the Muslim world ? Why doesn’t Obama and other seekers of peace speak out about these vital issues ?
3. “In Judea and Samaria, the Jewish People are not foreign occupiers. There should be no distortion of history between the Jewish people and the Jewish land.”
He spoke of biblical messages. Inspiring (and beautiful to see pictures come out on facebook of a meal where he and his advisors wore yarmulkes. Proud Jews.)
As Netanyahu said, “when we say never again, we mean never again. We rose from the generation of the Holocaust.” Citizens of the world, and this grandson of Holocaust survivors, and son of a woman born in a DP camp must never forget to remember those words.
Prime Minister Netanyahu deserves the thanks of the Jewish people, for speaking so clearly in front of the joint members of congress. Let us all pray, and act to support him and the Jewish state. Benjamin Netanyahu – thank you for speaking truth to power.
