Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is speaking tonight in New York City. I am waiting for him to arrive. Netanyahu gave a powerful speech today at the United Nations following Obama, Ahmadinejad and Gaddafi who spoke yesterday. I will report more later.
Iran hit back against the killer Iranian regime earlier today at the General Assembly.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brandished at the U.N. on Thursday Nazi-era documents on the extermination of Jews, dramatically rebutting Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s denial of the Holocaust.
“Yesterday, the man who called the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium,” Netanyahu said in an address to the U.N. General Assembly.
“To those who refused to come and to those who left in protest, I commend you,” he said.
“But to those who gave this Holocaust denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people, the Jewish people, and decent people everywhere: Have you no shame? Have you no decency?”
Netanyahu held aloft two documents — a copy of the minutes of the Wansee Conference, in which Nazi officials planned the Final Solution that led to the killing of six million Jews and the original blueprints of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camps.
He received the blueprints, discovered last year, during a visit to Germany in August.
“They contain a signature by Heinrich Himmler, Hitler’s deputy himself. Are these plans of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp where one million Jews were murdered … a lie, too?
Netanyahu’s speech this evening to a the New York Jewish Community was much more subdued. He focused more on the international anti-Israel propaganda.
