Benjamin Netanyahu, the current Prime Minister of Israel, made an extremely critical address at the United Nations General Assembly this Thursday past, denouncing many of their ideas and worldviews.
But perhaps the most shocking moment of all was when Netanyahu called the organization a “moral farce.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Netanyahu’s speech was one that world leaders will never forget.
Netanyahu opened his speech by praising the U.N., as he said Israel has a bright future with the organization. But the praise did not last long. Immediately, Netanyahu opened fire in the room, hurling insult after insult at his fellow leaders.
“Year after year, I’ve stood at this very podium and slammed the U.N. for its obsessive bias against Israel, and the U.N. deserved every scathing word,” Netanyahu said.
“For the disgrace of the General Assembly that last year passed 20 resolutions against the democratic state of Israel and a grand total of three resolutions against all the other countries on the planet. Israel: 20. Rest of the world: three.”
The prime minister had much more to say, slamming other groups within the U.N.
“And what about the joke called the U.N. Human Rights Council, which each year condemns Israel more than all the other countries of the world combined?” he asked.
“As women are being systematically raped, murdered, sold into slavery across the world, which is the only country that the U.N.’s Commission on Women chose to condemn this year? Yep, you guessed it, Israel,”Netanyahu continued.
“Israel, where women fly fighter jets, lead major corporations, head universities, preside, twice, over the Supreme Court, and have served as speaker of the Knesset and prime minister.”
“Ladies and gentlemen,” stated the Prime Minister of Israel. “What began as a moral force has become a moral farce.”
