Netanyahu at the 92 Street Y

September 29, 2009

The appraisals of Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the UN range from an exercise in futility to an address worthy of the new leader of the free world (especially against the backdrop of Obama’s tepid remarks).

Whatever one may think of the UN speech, I have found Netanyahu’s address before the Jewish American leaders at the 92nd Street Y to be very poignant. In it Netanyahu cited the Lubavitcher Rebbe as the driving force behind his 25-year-long career as Israel’s leading advocate abroad and the inspiration for the latest appearance before the UN.

Netanyahu revealed that he had met the Rebbe in 1984, while serving as Israel’s ambassador to the UN, and was instructed to light a candle of truth in the pitch darkness reigning inside the house of lies (Rebbe’s assessment of the UN). In his interview to the Israeli TV, Netanyahu said this message has been guiding him ever since.

Giving credit where credit is due is always admirable.
