A year after giving up his participation in the event following the Knesset elections, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now (Tuesday) delivering a speech at the 75th UN General Assembly, currently being held at the organization’s headquarters in New York. The speech is broadcast via a pre-recorded digital broadcast in recent days. Between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain as well as the importance of sanctions against Iran and the return of the arms embargo.
“Arab and Muslim countries will join the peace circle”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “The Middle East generally does not provide good news, and no one expected this year to be different – especially with the Corona. But I can bring 2 reports of good news.”
“Israel has signed peace agreements with Bahrain and the Emirates, for the first time in 25 years in which peace agreements with Israel are signed. These agreements will bring Israel the blessings of peace and economic prosperity.”
Netanyahu added: “I have no doubt that more countries will join the peace circle soon, very close. These agreements came on the basis of breaking the failed principles of peace of the past. For too long the Palestinians have been vetoing peace and holding it hostage to unreasonable demands, such as withdrawal. To the 67 lines or the deportation of tens of thousands of Jews. “
He said, “The demands of the Palestinians are impossible for any Israeli agreement, but for years the world has tried to promote them – and as a result they have acted to promote an unrealistic illusion.”
“Fortunately, President Trump understood this and acted differently – he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in the Golan Heights as part of the country, and promoted a realistic and logical plan for peace, which recognizes Israel’s right to exist, maintains security and allows Palestinians to advance safely.”
The prime minister continued: “Everyone has argued that it will eliminate the chance for peace – they were wrong, Trump’s steps have promoted peace with two other countries and even more will come. Trump’s steps have not made peace less likely, but peace closer.”
“At some point, the Palestinians will understand that they have no right of veto, and will open negotiations – and we will be willing to negotiate on the basis of the Trump plan to end the conflict once and for all.”
“There is a Hezbollah missile depot in the heart of Beirut”
Netanyahu said: “Israel and the Arab states stand together not only in the desire to promote peace, but also stand together against the biggest threat in the Middle East – Iran, which attacks its neighbors and its terrorist affiliates promote violence throughout the Middle East – Iraq, Yemen, and of course Lebanon.”
In addition, Netanyahu presented a map of the location of the explosion in Beirut, saying: “Hundreds were killed, thousands injured and tens of thousands lost their homes. Tonight I show you the place where the next explosion could occur – the Janah neighborhood, near the airport in Beirut. Hezbollah stores It has a secret reservoir of weapons, very close to the factories of a gas company and gas stations. “
“I tell the people of Janah – act now. Because if there is an explosion, it will be another disaster. We do not want you to be harmed, but Iran and Hezbollah do want it. You have to tell Hezbollah: dismantle these reservoirs. The world must tell Hezbollah to stop using Lebanese citizens as human shields. “
“Iran will have enough uranium for two nuclear bombs within months”
Netanyahu added: “We all need to stand up to Iran, and President Trump is to be commended for acting in this way. He was right when he withdrew from the signed nuclear deal – as early as 2015 I opposed this agreement alone because he does not stop them from acquiring nuclear weapons.
“Now they are also violating their small commitments in the agreement – and as a result, in a few months Iran will already have enough uranium enriched for 2 nuclear bombs, and the hand is still outstretched. There is no doubt that Iran is striving for nuclear weapons, and we have proven this without a shadow of a doubt.”
“Before the signing of the agreement, Europe was told in Israel that any breach of the agreement by Iran would be responded to quickly and resolutely – but since the Security Council has done nothing. Instead of stopping Iranian aggression, the nuclear deal has strengthened it,” the prime minister said.
“When world leaders signed the nuclear deal, they opened the lion’s cage – and now we’re all paying the price: Iran has gotten richer and stronger, and as a result has become bolder in promoting terrorism.”
“While the Security Council is divided, we in the region are united. Arabs and Israelis alike are calling for strong action against Iran – and when Arabs and Israelis agree on something – others should pay attention.”
“Israel calls on all members of the Security Council to stand by the United States in the face of Iranian aggression, to stand with it, to put an end to its nuclear program once and for all, and to face together with the United States the greatest danger to peace in our region.”
“Continue sanctions on Iran”
Earlier, the Israeli ambassador to the UN, Gilad Ardan, delivered a speech, during which he said: “Abraham’s agreement is in line with the UN’s vision to promote world peace. I thank the leaders of the Emirates and Bahrain for their initiative. We would expect the UN to encourage more countries to take action. They are similar, but instead they ignore the agreement. “
“Relations with Israel are constituted on the understanding of the common threats facing Israel and the Arab states – Iran and its metamorphoses support terrorism. The price of silence before the arms embargo removal will be shocking, we must continue with sanctions with all our might.”
Arden noted that “Israel will continue to reach out for peace, and invites the Palestinians to do the same. I hope that more countries will understand that it is the Palestinians, not Israel, who need to return to negotiations.”
