Netanyahu's Powerful Moment of 'Deafening Silence' At U.N.

(Truth Revolt) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke passionately before the United Nations on Thursday afternoon, attacking the Iran nuclear deal and the general support for it in the international body. At one point, Netanyahu spoke of the "utter silence" in the U.N. over Iran's commitment to the destruction of Israel:
"Seventy years after the murder of 6 million Jews, Iran’s leaders promise to destroy my country, murder my people and the response from this body, the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here, has been absolutely nothing. Utter silence. Deafening silence."
His words were followed by literal silence as he stared into the assembly without speaking for a full 45 seconds. The dramatic moment and the import of his words left to weigh on the consciences of the gathered, and of those at home.

Perhaps, one hopes, even at the White House, assuming any conscience there remains.
