Netanyahu: “We Have a Voice”

Evoking the ancient fear among Jews of annihilation at the hands of their enemies, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Monday proclaimed “we have a voice,” saying the Jewish people will never again be passive in the face of threats to their existence.

“Those days are over,” Netanyahu said. “No more,” he declared, echoing the vow of “never again” Jews commonly use in reference to the Holocaust.

Netanyahu spoke during an appearance before AIPAC, the pro-Israel lobbying group. His remarks are a preview of those he will make Tuesday to Congress.

“Today we have a voice, and tomorrow as prime minister of the one and only Jewish state, I plan to use that voice,” he said. “American leaders worry about the security of their country,” he said. “Israeli leaders worry about the survival of their country.”

Showing a graphic he said depicted Iran’s training, arming and dispatching of terrorists on five continents, Netanyahu said Iranians’ “tentacles of terror” reached across the world.

“This is what Iran is doing now – without nuclear weapons. Imagine what Iran would do with nuclear weapons. And this same Iran vows to annihilate Israel. If it develops nuclear weapons, it would have the means to achieve that goal,” he said. “And as prime minister of Israel, I have a moral obligation to speak up in the face of these dangers while there is still time to avert them.”

Netanyahu said his appearance in Congress, arranged without the blessing of the White House, was not intended to show President Obama disrespect.

“My speech is not intended to show any disrespect to President Obama or the esteemed office that he holds. I have great respect for both,” he said, receiving, according to the Associated Press, a standing ovation from more than 15,000 pro-Israel supporters.

  1. My prayers are that the American citizens, our elected leaders, and those of other nations will hear Prime Minister Netanyahu’s ‘We Have a Voice’ speaking directly to their hearts, minds, and souls and awaken millions to the imminent and catastrophic dangers of a nuclear Iran to Israel and to the civilized World! Make certain that your Senators and Reps are in attendance! Call the Senate at 1-202-244-____) and ask to be connected to your Senator or ask for their extention. Don’t wait, plus call your Reps local offices in your community. We can have a ‘voice’, too! jb

    • Last ditch effort by the administration to get it’s voice, (rhetoric) out on the networks.
      Ain’t gonna work with the people that are in the know.
      Rice is a liar and Powers is the wife of Cass Sunstein.

      • Correct. I do not know how many people in position fussed, and made that squeeze these two in. When I found out they were going to attend, I didn’t think they were going to run their mouth. I thought they would be sitting in the audience listening….

  2. We see now, after Bibi’s APAC speech, why the knock-kneed, nervous critters now populating the White House are terrified of what he will say. He will take down Obama’s house of cards in about 5 minutes.

  3. Obama is severely outclassed by Benjamin Netanyahu, and he knows it.

    Therefore, he must attempt to diminish the effect that this speech will have even before it has occurred.

    These are the tactics that the left uses to prop up a weak president, one faced with a true leader that is more eloquent and passionate for his Country than Obama will ever be.

    These are the tactics that Obama used to get where he is today and he is using them against a far more intelligent man and a far more experienced man than ever before.

    Jesus told his disciples of wars and rumors of wars, but that is not the end, only My Father knows.

  4. Don’t worry about Lord Barack BiBi. He gets upset if his navel gazing isn’t productive. We are just biding our time until he exits the WH. Hoping he can somehow be tied in knots to prevent any more damage to our country.
