Yes, I saw his speech as well as many others at the General Council meeting.
In my opinion, he spoke as if to scare almost every single country in this world and yet he does not have the evidence to do so.
IAEA and Iran
I'm an empirical evidence type of guy, and though that may be hard to receive, any evidence whatsoever would be a good start. Although I do believe
radical Islam is indeed a very dangerous threat to world stability and we should take the necessary precautions and action against such a threat,
starting a war that could escalate to a much larger conflict is not what I consider the necessary actions. The Israeli regime, although I cannot paint
with such a broad brush because there are many even within the regime that have broke with the ranks on this issue (though you will not hear about
that on the news), has undoubtedly inflated the nuclear threat of Iran without having any evidence to do so for purposes I can only begin to speculate
I also found his prop and presentation to be somewhat disrespectful and condescending, as he needed a crude presentation to explain to the rest of the
world, who I guess he sees as too stupid to understand, the threat posed by a nation that has not been involved in a war since they fought Iraq in the
80's. I really thought it was quite unbelievable, where did he get these percentages from? Enriching low grade uranium is 70 percent of the process?
Nothing much surprises me anymore in the realm of geo-politics, I must say. It was absolutely ridiculous in my humble opinion, and that is why I made
a joke of it. Because to me it was just that. He trivialized a very serious matter.
I think what Netanyahu does not understand is that no one wants a pre-emptive attack on Iran. But that will not stop him from pushing for one. And
anyone who pushes for war despite the necessary evidence, since I believe war should ALWAYS be the last option as it is the most vile and evil of
actions as it always involves the loss of innocence life, is not someone I can or will trust.
