Australia’s B’nai Brith Anti-Defamation Commission (ADC) and the ZFA have welcomed and applauded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s eloquent speech to a  joint session of the U.S. Congress.

Dr Dvir Abramovich, Chairman of the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission, issued the following statement:

“We welcome and commend Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s stirring speech to a  joint session of the U.S. Congress, and more broadly to the international  community, in which he passionately and determinedly spoke about the need to ensure that Iran is not permitted to develop nuclear weapons.  We agree with the Prime Minister’s grave concerns about the current P5+1 negotiations and his statements that “Iran’s regime is as radical as ever”, that “the greatest dangers facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons” and that “We can’t let that happen”. As we have stated previously, it is our hope that the P5+1  talks lead to a future settlement that imposes restrictions on Iran’s capacity to produce nuclear weapons, and removes the existential threat posed by Iran to Israel, the Middle-East and to global security. We urge the Australian government and the international community to heed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s warnings and to work together to effect a deal that prevents Iran from building a nuclear bomb”.

Dr Danny Lamm, president of the Zionist Federation of Australia, added: “We commend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his brave and timely speech to a joint session of Congress in the United States on the dangers of a nuclear deal with Iran. In the face of much criticism internally and externally, PM Netanyahu delivered a speech which was more than just rhetoric; a speech full of substance and tangible, peaceful alternatives to making a deal with the devil. We can only hope that his advice does not fall on deaf ears in America or indeed the world, or the consequences could be dangerous not just for Israel but for the entire free world.”

    The real issue is whether Netanyahu’s speech was applauded by U.S Congress and the media, not just the Jewish Community.
