Pink Flamingo friend Sally Vee sent this to me – the close of Bibi’s speech.
“Adonai yevarekh et ahmo beshalom
Adonai yiten ohz le-ahmo
Adonai yevarekh et ahmo beshalom.”
“My Lord will bless his people with peace.
My Lord will give strength to his people.
My Lord will bless his people with peace.”
“My Lord” is also translated as “God.”
Bibi Netanyahu stood up for decency and honor.
“…Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attacks Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s comments about the Holocaust, calling them a “disgrace” and a “mockery.”
“Are these protocols lies?” he asked, waving them in his hand. “Are the successive German governments that have kept these documents for posterity all liars?”
He opened his remarks by saying that the greatest threat to the U.N. effort to prevent a repetition of the carnage of the World War II is the “assault on truth.”
“Yesterday the president of Iran stood at this very podium and spewed his anti-Semitic rants,” he said. “Just a few days earlier he claimed that the Holocaust was a lie.” He then described how he had obtained the documents he held up before the assembly.
“Nearly one-third of all Jews at the time perished in the Holocaust,” he said. “Nearly every family was affected, including my own.”
Mr. Netanyahu continued about Mr. Ahmadinejad, “Perhaps some of you think this man and his odious regime only threaten the Jews. Well, if you think that you are wrong, dead wrong.
“What starts as attacks on Jews always ends up engulfing others … this regime embodies the extremes of Islamic fundamentalism.”…”
