We Can All Be Proud

On this erev Yom Kippur 5770 we can all be proud of the way that the Prime Minister of Israel, Benyamin Netanyahu, addressed the United Nations last week. That strong, articulate and impassioned speech has done much to counter the lies and half-truths told by our enemies.

The first part of the speech is below and I have included links to part 2 & 3 on YouTube.

Part 3 is here

Maybe even more impressive is Netanyahu's statement to the Israeli press after his speech where he emotionally recalls meeting with the Rebbe on Simchas Torah evening in 1984. He obviously took the Rebbe's words to heart.

Following his impassioned speech, Netanyahu spoke with members of the Israeli media. In answer to one journalist who asked whether he might not be lending credibility to Ahmadenijad by addressing his denial of the Holocaust, Netanyahu chose to focus on a prescient experience he had with the Lubavitcher Rebbe,Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, 25 years ago.
