Obama pulls Kerry and Power from audience of Netanyahu's powerful UN speech

In another slap in the face for Israel and its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Obama pulled Secretary of State Kerry and U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power out of the General Assembly during Netanyahu’s powerful address.  A large number of delegations walked out of the General Assembly for the speech, but Obama left behind a crew of underlings bearing Jewish names:

“Ambassador Power and Secretary Kerry were unable to attend Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before the General Assembly because they were called into a meeting with President Obama, which they participated in via video teleconference,” a State Department Official told Breitbart News.

 “The United States was represented at the speech by Ambassador David Pressman, Alternate Representative of the United States to the United Nations for Special Political Affairs, Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro, and Ambassador Richard Erdman, Alternate Representative to the UN General Assembly,” the official added.

The message delivered by the Israeli PM castigated the U.N. for its silence in the face of Iran’s repeated threats to wipe out Israel and the Jews and indicted that Israel will take action to make sure this does not happen.  The entire speech is embedded below, but for those with little time, the most dramatic moment, when Netanyahu shamed the U.N. with 44 seconds of silence, is here:

I believe that Netanyahu’s speech may go down as one of the most significant in U.N. history, particularly if Israel takes the military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities that he hinted at.  The League of Nations has vanished from history, but the memory lives on of Ethiopia’s Emperor Haile Selassie’s 1935 speech warning to that body that his nation was mobilizing for the Italian invasion that was threatened and that followed.  That speech is remembered with shame and cited as an example of the moral and practical bankruptcy of the League.  The U.N. should take note.  History will not be kind to either the U.N. or Obama when the next promised genocide is attempted.

Here is the complete speech of Netanyahu.
