“I saw a sign right at the entrance there. It says, ‘this doesn’t represent the United Nations.’ I have two comments on that, the first is, of course it doesn’t represent the United Nations, it represents the truth. And will continue to tell the truth and speak the truth everywhere, including in the United Nations.”

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister, Israel:
“This exhibit would not have been possible ten years ago. And this exhibit will be unnecessary ten years from now. We are changing the world. We are changing Israel’s position in the world, and above all we are making it clear that we fight for the truth and for our rights.”
6. Various shots, Jerusalem exhibit
7. SOUNDBITE (English) Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister, Israel:
“Iran not merely wishes to extinguish our history, it wishes to extinguish our present and our future. And we will not let that happen. I was asked in Washington what is Israel’s position on the request of countries to enrich uranium, countries in the Middle East. And I said, why is it that they want to enrich uranium? And they said that the reason that they are asking to enrich uranium is because Iran has received the right to enrich uranium under the dubious nuclear agreement. The best way to prevent the nuclearization of the Middle East is to either fully fix the Iran deal, or fully nix it. This is the only way to prevent the inevitable spread of nuclear technology and nuclear weapons into the Middle East.”

STORYLINE:

The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, today (8 Mar) visited a historical exhibit titled “3000 years of Jews in Jerusalem,” at United Nations Headquarters.

Netanyahu said this exhibit “represents the truth,” and stressed that Israel “will continue to tell the truth and speak the truth everywhere, including in the United Nations.”

The Prime Minister said this exhibit of historical artefacts representing Jewish life in Jerusalem over millennia “would not have been possible ten years ago” and “will be unnecessary ten years from now.”

He said, “we are changing Israel’s position in the world, and above all we are making it clear that we fight for the truth and for our rights.”

Turning to Iran and the Iran nuclear deal, Netanyahu said “Iran not merely wishes to extinguish our history, it wishes to extinguish our present and our future.”

He said “the best way to prevent the nuclearization of the Middle East is to either fully fix the Iran deal, or fully nix it. This is the only way to prevent the inevitable spread of nuclear technology and nuclear weapons into the Middle East.”
