LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat discuss Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks when he spoke to APAIC this week. Every time Prime Minister Netanyahu speaks to AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) it’s a special time especially since AIPAC is a lobbying group that advocates pro-Israel policies to the Congress and Executive Branch of the United States. In his address Netanyahu said he had come to draw a line. “My friends, I’ve come here to draw a clear line. You know that I like to draw lines — especially red ones. But the line I want to draw today is the line between life and death, between right and wrong, between the blessings of a brilliant future and the curses of a dark past.”
“Many Arab leaders — and believe me, this is a fact, not a hypothesis, it’s a fact many Arab leaders today already realize that Israel is not their enemy, that peace with the Palestinians would turn our relations with them and with many Arab countries into open and thriving relationships.”
Prime Minister Benjamin NetanyahuHe continued to discuss how he was able to visit an Israeli hospital in the Golan Heights that was set up for Syrians caught in the Syrian conflict. He spoke of his emotions regarding what he experienced and the testimony of a shell shock husband and father whose wife and daughter had been blown away with a bomb while he held his young son. He spoke about how Syria’s President had lied to them and said that Iran was their friend and Israel was their enemy although it was Iran’s bombs that were hurting them and it was Israel who was helping them. He continued to ask if you have ever heard of any of Iran’s humanitarian efforts. “Did you ever hear about Syria sending a field hospital anywhere? Did you ever hear about Iran sending a humanitarian delegation overseas? No? You missed that memo? You know why? You know why you haven’t heard anything about that? Because the only thing that Iran sends abroad are rockets, terrorists and missiles to murder, maim and menace the innocent.” His speech was filled with many poignant truth filled words as not to leave any confusion as to who Israel is and who their enemies are. In quoting the head of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, he said Hezbollah loves death and Israel loves life. And that’s why, he said, Iran and Hezbollah will win and Israel will lose. Well, he’s right about the first point. They do glorify death, and we do sanctify life. But he’s dead wrong on the second point. It’s precisely because we love life that Israel shall win.” The Prime Minister continued to make his case as to why Iran must be prevented from developing a nuclear bomb and went to great lengths to communicate that the emphasis was on prevention as opposed to stopping a nuclear armed Iran. He further discussed how Iran has repeatedly said they are not building nuclear weapons so the question remains why do they continue to build ICBM’s, intercontinental ballistic missiles, whose only purpose is to carry nuclear warheads? He continued to reiterate that since Iran scuds missiles can already reach Israel the reason behind ICMB’s which can travel across vast oceans and can strike cities on the eastern seaboard like Washington D.C. and very soon after that Los Angeles. Netanyahu warned America, “This scud is for you”. Iran must be stopped and Netanyahu made it clear that Israel has every intention to do so. In recent days the Israeli Navy intercepted Iranian scud missiles headed to the Gaza strip. The time has come for those who stand with Israel to be known and accounted for. A nuclear armed Iran put’s the entire world at risk.
