Watch: Netanyahu Uses Final Speech To Air All The Dirty Laundry & Puts Biden In His Place, ‘With All Due Respect…’
Recently ousted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used his final speech to put Biden in his place.
Speaking in front of the Knesset he detailed that the Biden administration asked him not to publicly comment on their disagreement over the Iran deal. Netanyahu explained that the leader of the Israeli government should have the right to disagree with the President of the United States when what is being discussed could threaten the survival of his country.
From Fox News:
Netanyahu went on to talk about the challenges in dealing with the U.S. He said “the administration” in Washington had asked him “not to discuss our disagreement on Iran publicly.”
“But with all due respect, I can’t do that,” Netanyahu said, according to the Jerusalem Post.
The paper said Netanyahu compared the attempt by the U.S. to return to the Iran nuke deal to the decision by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt not to bomb the train tracks that led to Auschwitz — the concentration camp — when there was an opportunity in 1944.
“The prime minister of Israel needs to be able to say no to the president of the United States on issues that threaten our existence,” he said. The report said Netanyahu recalled his 2015 speech in front of a joint session of Congress to voice his dismay over the Obama-era nuke deal.
The White House has not responded however immediately congratulated new Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. Despite being a rival to Netanyahu, Bennett has already condemned the Biden administration for wishing to return to the Iran nuke deal.
Netanyahu is still the head of the largest coalition in parliament, the other coalition is made up of numerous small parties, should the government hold together Bennett will have to step down after two years and allow centrists Yair Lapid to lead.
