The speech most needed to be given to the world
By Victor Sharpe
March 4, 2015

After hearing so many of his other speeches, this one to the joint session of Congress on March 3, 2015 may have been Netanyahu's best. Certainly it was the one he most needed to make.

He was bold, clear, articulate and eminently wise. He spoke empirical truths to Congress and to the world. He provided facts, searing facts.

He honored Holocaust survivor, Eli Wiesel, and wove that man's towering passion, both during and since the Holocaust, into his speech.

The implication was towards the destruction of the six million Jews who perished during the Holocaust – a third of the world's Jewish population – and of the existential threat to the more than six million Jews in Israel of yet another holocaust.

Finally his reference to Moses' injunction to the Jewish people for all time, was powerful and echoed thunderously in the chamber.

He didn't put down Obama. On the contrary, the standing ovations and the warm closing greetings on both sides of the isle are a testimony to his maturity and grace.

Above all it accounts for the strong support of Congress and the American people for embattled Israel.

PM Netanyahu was outstanding. Obama, Kerry, Biden, Pelosi, and those Democrats who chose to follow them in boycotting the speech, have acted beneath contempt.

The Iranian ayatollahs have never backed down from their stated aim of destroying Judeo-Christian civilization. They have never wavered from their depiction of the United States as the "Great Satan."

Just last week, Iran bragged about its recent test-firing of "new strategic weapons" that it says will "play a key role" in any future battle against the "Great Satan; the U.S."

Iran also continues developing new ICBM missiles and launch sites with devastating long-range capability. Just last week they had a military exercise where they practiced destroying a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf.

And only two days ago, Iranians burnt an effigy of Obama. This, while talks are continuing between Secretary of State Kerry and the Iranian foreign minister.

Iran continues to enrich uranium and plutonium. Only recently has the West discovered secret new secret Iranian enriching sites with ever more sophisticated centrifuges spinning .

Iran may be only a short step from a nuclear bomb. It has a lengthy record of lying and cheating about its military activities. Its abominable human rights record makes the very angels in heaven weep.

About the only thing Iran never lies about is its absolute, unyielding determination to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, leads a nation, Israel, surrounded by Islamo-Nazi enemies; a nation so small that prior to the June 1967 defensive war it fought against Arab genocidal aggression, it was a mere 9 miles wide.

Contrast that to America's 3,000 mile width from sea to shiny sea.

That is why the Prime Minister owed it to his nation to accept Speaker Boehner's invitation and warn the world – before it is too late – of the Iranian mullahs' fanatical rush to inflict a nuclear inferno.
