Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warns the United Nations about Iran’s development of nuclear weapons.
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, speaking at the United Nations General Assembly’s final session of speakers on Monday, claimed Iran continues to sponsor terrorist groups in the Middle East that seek to destroy Israel.
Bennett warned of Iran’s progress in creating a nuclear bomb, saying the country has reached a “watershed point” in its efforts.
Israel has lost its “patience” in waiting for the international community to respond, according to Bennett.
Bennett echoed US President Joe Biden’s remarks last week, saying, “We will not allow [Iran] to obtain a nuclear weapon.” “Words have no effect on centrifuges spinning.”
Israel, according to Bennett, is located in the “toughest neighborhood on Earth,” surrounded by terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah who seek Israel’s destruction. He claimed that Iran funds all of these organizations.
“Anyone who wishes to open their eyes may see Iran’s grand goal clearly. Iran wants to rule the area, and it wants to do so with the help of nuclear weapons. Iran has been wreaking havoc and destroying countries across the Middle East for the past three decades.”
Monday was the last day of the annual General Assembly’s General Debate session.
Bennett, who took office as Prime Minister earlier this year, also slammed a recent conference commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Durban Declaration and Program of Action to combat global racism, claiming that it has devolved into a conference that promotes bigotry by taking an anti-Israel stance.
Bennett, on the other hand, made no mention of Israel’s decades-long struggle with the Palestinians. President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority slammed Israel for demolishing Palestinian homes in a speech last week, calling the campaign “apartheid” and “ethnic cleansing.”
Bennett has been chastised by Israel’s Likud Party, which is run by former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for failing to address the problem on the international scene.
According to Haaretz, “Netanyahu’s comments at the United Nations generated waves all over the world and propelled Israel’s political concerns to the forefront of international attention.”
Bennett, on the other hand, gave a meaningless speech in front of an empty auditorium and wasted empty words rather than seizing a significant worldwide platform.”
