Prop! Sign showing Iran’s secret atomic sites
Netanyahu gave the location on google maps (didn’t catch it, sorry) says it’s 100m from rug cleaners - “by now, they may be radioactive rugs”
Netanyahu says the Iranians took apart that site and spread it around the city. He says residents of Teheran can get a Geiger Counter on Amazon for $29.99!
Netanyahu: Why did Iran keep a secret atomic archive and a secret atomic warehouse? When S. Africa and Libya gave up, they destroyed their archives & warehouses. Iran hasn’t given up its goal to develop atomic weapons.
Netanyahu says he believes IAEA chief Amani wants to do the right thing & inspects the warehouse before it’s cleared out.

“Remember when you said there could be inspections at any time any where? How about inspections right here, right now? Tell the world the truth about Iran”
Netanyahu: Israel will never allow a regime that wants to destroy it to develop nuclear weapons...We will act wherever and whenever we just act to defend our state and our people
“Some peace, some moderation” - Netanyahu says, listing Iran’s funding in Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, terror attacks in Europe. Accuses Europe of appeasing Iran by not lifting sanctions, says “appeasement” is a strong word but it’s “exactly what we see again in Europe”
“Have these European leaders learned nothing from history? We in israel don’t need a wake up call because Iran threatens us every day. Despite the many hopes, this deal brought war ever closer to our borders”
Netanyahu: Hezbollah is deliberately using the innocent people of Beirut as human shields

Calls this “a picture that is worth 1000 missiles,” points to missive sites by soccer stadiums, airport
Netanyahu to Hezbollah and Iran, in a nutshell
Netanyahu commends Trump sanctions, says despite predictions, the sanctions are collapsing Iran’s economy, many companies “scrambling to get out”
Netanyahu: Iranian people “aren’t rallying around the regime, they’re rallying against the regime. They’re not chanting death to America, they’re chanting death to the dictator.”
Netanyahu is praising his own YouTube videos directed to Iranians, says he gets positive responses from people in Iran.
Netanyahu calls out the women uncovering their hair #WhiteWednesdays
Netanyahu says he’s grateful to trump for withdrawing from nuclear deal as are other Arab nations.
Netanyahu has a “confession,” the one positive aspect of the Iran Nuclear Deal - “bringing Israel and many Arab states closer together than ever before in an intimacy and friendship...that would’ve been unimaginable years ago” (applause)
BINGO!!! Netanyahu calling UNESCO “morally corrupt” was the final one
More UN bashing as Netanyahu mentions “Zionism is racism” resolution, says it’s “foul stench still reeks in these halls.” Talks about Ethiopian Aliya and Israeli Arabs serving on courts, etc.
“It’s the same old antisemitism...The Jewish State is slandered and held to a different standard”
Got sidetracked there...meanwhile Netanyahu is defending the Nation-State Law, points out that many other countries have similar laws about their nationalities and aren’t condemned
Netanyahu: What is unique about the Jewish People isn’t that we have a Jewish state, it’s that many oppose us having a state.
Netanyahu calls out Abbas for calling Jewish self-determination racist, his Holocaust denying dissertation and the PA’s death penalty for selling land to Jews.
Netanyahu on Palestinian payments to terrorists: “The more they slay, the more they pay...The UN should condemn such a despicable policy”

Calls on Hamas to released Shaul, Goldin, Mengistu, al-Sayed
Lots of Bible references, recognition of right to Jewish state by League of Nations, equal individual rights of all citizens of Israel...
“I could not be more proud to represent my country israel,” @netanyahu says.
Requisite agriculture and technology mentions
“Most of all I’m proud of the ppl of israel who draw extraordinary strength from the wellsprings of our heritage”
And we’re done. I was one away from blackout!
Very strong speech from Netanyahu. Multiple rounds of applause, which is not to be taken for granted from the hostile audience of the UN.
