The way the Arab world views Netanyahu’s speech. It is worth seeing how this speech was reinterpreted for the Arab world. They draw comparisons between Gaza and the Holocaust, and describe the UN as the body that created the Jewish state in the “heart of the Arab world”.

Delegates from Iran were absent, as Netanyahu denounced the UN for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s previous speech.

  • Have the Israelis send me to negotiate and have the Palestinians send Nadya Rasheed. We’ll work something out.


  • I am an American and I enjoy Al-Jazeera’s unbiased coverage especially concerning Israel. Anyone who sincerely acknowledges the facts behind the creation of the state of Israel cannot deny the ethnic cleansing that took place in 1947-8 and continues today.
    Netanyahu is another example of an Israeli leader who is unwilling to allow basic human rights to the indigenous Palestinians. He follows in a long line of terrorist leaders such as M. Begin, A. Sharon and Y. Shamir and his rhetoric matches their crimes against humanity.
    Al-Jazeera is unwanted and unpopular in Israel and the US because it asks questions and raises concerns that directly contradict the government propaganda being disseminated in each country. For the Israeli or Jewish readers here, you will know that Haaretz also offers critical reporting that runs counter to official discourse. The world needs this kind of journalism to support the victims of the world (which do NOT include Israelis or Americans).

    sincerely, Cameron
