Bibi, what a great actor. i'm sure he took an acting class, he should be in Hollywood.
I guess anyone can take over a land, claim it's it in their holly book, and kick the native population out. i guess i'm gonna give it a shot.i just need to find a very good spot. Israel got away with it, why not me...
Plain spoken eloquence. No one misunderstands what he says.
Contrast with Obama. Nuanced double speak that can't be pinned down
to any discernible position. He speaks like he voted: "present".
He leads from behind: "All right , men follow me. I'm right behind you!"
Two things Netanyahu got wrong in his speech: 1.) The Arab spring does not automatically mean the ushering in of democracy in the middle east ( all the evidence points to more sharia states being formed in the middle east)nor is democracy necessarily a good system. ie. mob rule via majority. 2.) Militant Islam does not threaten islam, militant islam is apart of Islam. A is A and Islam is Islam.
i have to say: i hate netanyahu, hate factionalist bashing of obama and i think that congress should show more support for our president- even if they disagree with him- than any foreign nation's leader.
even i think he gave a great speech.
Great Speech, but too heavy on the "democracy" stuff. It is a common meme in todays politics, but democracy is VERY VERY bad.... "America" property known as the Untied States of America is a Representative Constitutional Republic. VERY VERY VERY VERY different from a democracy.
Although with each passing year we lose pieces of the republic to the onslaught of the desire to turn this great nation to a democracy with the end goal of a socialist utopia that will never come to be, for long before that would occur "America" will be lost to the pages of history.
You are correct in what you say. I often wonder why noone else says it. However, in all fairness, they may have been taught that in school as I was. I graduated from H.S. in 1967. GO figure!
Great job! We don't want a democracy, so to speak, in the USA. Basically, idiots outnumber rational and independent citizens, and the idiots get to dictate to everyone. Our Constitution states that each person has certain rights; this is all I want, not mob rule, which democracy gives you.
Actually, the Constitution grants those rights to "all" people, a Democracy grants them to the majority. That is why democracy's eventually fail. Greed, power hunger, etc. + money=failed Democracy
i agree that people are stupid, but your apparent desire to abdicate your freedom terrifies me. i prefer to make my own decisions and accept the consequences that follow.
Reminding each other America is a constitutional republic is not "abdicating" our freedom - it is reinforcing it. The founders knew that 'pure democracies' (like after french revolution) are "violent in their death." Once a group realizes it can "out vote" another one, all sorts of terrible things happen. The focus in the republic is individual rights - regardless of what dumb thing the majority wants to do.
David, your second sentence is right in line with living in a republic - plus it also highlights personal responsibility - we each are responsible - Uncle Sam is not supposed to 'solve our problems' or tell us how to live, believe, or anything. We are dumbing down and becoming less free, more controlled with time. Plus, the fed reserve sells us debt so it keeps growing... (another big topic).
I have been to Israel a couple years ago, we talked to a number of people, and even you see Arabs living alongside Jews, and Arab stores and vendors there. It is great for Netanyahu to bring the truth to light and remind us of the dangers there. Hamas likes to fire rockets from residential areas to prevent return fire. Plus they kill their own people at will.
Imagine Canada telling us we have to split Washington DC down the middle - is that going to fly? (comparing splitting of Jerusalem) Israel has been promised that land for thousands of years, and their race was nearly destroyed, so they have to be wary. Plus Ahmadinejad (sp?) says he wants to wipe Israel off the map. They have to be vigilant if they are to survive.
They need to disband the UN. If there is any peace to be given - they are are instrument in the destruction of the State of Israel.
Every once in a while, American's need to be given a lesson in history - at the very least, remember the past inequities against a race.One must ask:Who in their right mind would support a terrorist group whose only lot in life is to annihilate a group of people?
Who in their right mind can't see the evil doers only reason and goal is to destroy a race?
Who in their right mind would even suggest that the State of Israel should even consider going back prior to the 1967 border.
Excellent speech by a leader who knows the fundamental problems in the middle east.
I'd say Prime Minister Netanyahu's has left an impression on the American people what true leadership should be.
A great speech from a great speaker.
What is Joe B. writing down around 30:10? He seemed to take note of the fact that many Arab leaders were "unwilling to end the conflict".

What a speaker, fully explaining what our press won't - Israel's muslims are free. Anywhere else, muslims are one with god, state and the collective society. Individual rights don't exist. If they do, the muslims that speak out are met with bullets.
9/11 was very good for Israel

Leaving out the o in God isn't a fear thing. It is a reverance thing, but I do not know the Jewish tradition about it that some practice. In that light, I think it's rather a nice thing. I'm not Jewish. I noticed in reading articles and blogs written by Rabbis that it is something they do as well.
lol, dude, he's probably a devout jew. that's how they do it. they take "do not take my name in vain" very seriously.
It's not fear, it's a Jewish tradition expressing utmost respect. You can read about it here: http://www.faqs.org/faqs/judaism/FAQ/05-Worship/section-52.html
traditionally many Jewish people and those who follow the Hebraic movement in Christianity leave the vowel out to honor the holiness or setting apart of the name or in Hebrew Hashim, which directly translated means 'the name' it is a sign of respect and in no way reflects fear of anything but G-d
I would so love for this man to be our president. He is a true leader. The contrast b/w him and the fraud we have is unbelieveable really.
Well considering that the Left, Right, Progressives and even the Constitutionalists have willfully flushed Article 2, Section 1 down the toilet, let's draft Bibi.
Better a Zionist who loves America than an Islamist who loathes her.
.... and in clear contrast to the Pelosi-Reid Congress' standing ovation of Felipe Cauldron's arrogant denigration of America and our right to protect our sovereign borders.
We can thank Barack Hussein Obama for this moral clarity. He and the other Marxist vermin have crawled out of their cesspools into the light of day. They stand in the shadows of leaders like Netanyahu.
The time to choose is upon us and it is not between donkeys and elephants. It is liberty or tyranny.
