On Thursday, September 22, 2016, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke before the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). He had some choice words to say about the UN.

As perhaps you know, the UN has had a neurotic fixation with the world's only Jewish state (Joseph Puder, "New research confirms UN obsession with Israel", frontpagemag, September 19, 2016).

Here is some of the evidence for this diagnosis. The UN has condemned/blamed Israel:

-for occupying Muslim Holy sites in Jerusalem (Gregory Tomlim, "UN body condemns Israel for illegal occupation in Jerusalem of Muslim Holy Sites", christianexaminer, April 18, 2016).

-for being the world's worst health violator (unwatch, May 25, 2016).

-for being the world's worst human rights violator (Ann Bayefsky, "UN says Israel, not Iran, North Korea or Syria worst violator of human rights", foxnews, March 29, 2015).

-for creating an impediment to peace ("UN condemns Israeli settlement plan as impediment to peace", alray, July 30, 2015).

-for committing war crimes (The UN's Israel Inquisition", wallstreetjournal, June 24, 2015).

-for violating children's rights ("UN blames Israel for committing violations against Palestinian children", americansunitedwithIsrael, August 3, 2016).

-for degrading women (Daniel Harper, "UN to condemn Israel over treatment of women, ignore Syria", theweeklystandard, March 8, 2012).

-for, apparently, being the only nation in the world to violate women's rights ("UN condemns Israel for women's rights violations", lockerdome, March, 2015) Note: according to a 2014 World Economic Forum report, Israel ranked 57th of 137 nations for 'female political empowerment'; the US ranked 54th; Saudi Arabia ranked 117th (ibid).

-for being the world's worst violator of women's rights (Elad Benari, "UN finds greatest violator of women's rights--Israel, of course", arutzsheva, March 20, 2015).

-for being responsible for 'Palestinian' economic troubles ("UN blames Israel for sagging Palestinian economy", youtube, September 7, 2016).

-for being the cause of Gaza and Palestinian Authority incompetence ("UN on failed Gaza, Palestinian governments: it's all Israel's fault", breakingisraelnews, September 6, 2016).

-for being the reason 'Palestinian' men beat their wives ("UN blames Israel for Palestinian men who beat their wives", elderofzyion, March 9, 2016).

-for causing phone problems in Hamas anti-Israel terror tunnels ("UN blames Israel for lousy mobile reception in Hamas tunnels", jewishpress, June 22, 2016).

The UN even holds what might be a world record for Israel-bashing. On November 26, 2013, it condemned Israel six times before the end of the workday ("UN condemns Israel six times in one day", abundanthope, December 5, 2013).

This hateful neurosis has become so extreme the UN has condemned Israel for leaving the Middle East in order to commit yet "another" act of 'occupation' --against Nepal (Roger Pumper, "UN condemns Israel for occupation of Nepal", middleeastbeast, March 23-4, 2016).

On September 22, 2016, Israel Prime Minister Nentayahu stepped into this insanely anti-Israel environment. He gave a a speech to the UN General Assembly.

How does a Jewish leader of the world's most vilified nation speak in such a place? What can a Jewish leader say?

Here's a video excerpt from that speech. It's worth your time to listen to this leader of the Jewish nation.

This video is 4:06 long. It's dated September 22, 2016. It was uploaded to washingtonfreebeacon by Jack Heretik. Listen carefully to what PM Netanyahu says, how he says it--and how this excerpt begins:

For me, Netanyahu's words refer to more than Israel's future political place at the UN. His words echo a Jewish dream.

Many of us who wait for the Final Redemption of the Jewish nation believe that Netanyahu is correct. There is about to be a great change in this world.

Consciously or not, Benjamin Netanyahu refers to a change that goes far beyond the United Nations. Those of us who wait for Redemption know that, when Redemption comes, everything (as Netanyahu said in that speech) will change. The entire world will know about it. The United Nations General Assembly will know about it. The world's attitude towards Israel will change.

On more than one level, Netanyahu is correct. The change that is coming will begin to unfold sooner than we think.

Yes, Netanyahu is definitely correct. Israel is becoming the Beacon that guides the world. Israel is destined to become the Light that changes the world.

Stay tuned.

Shabbat shalom.
