Now the explosive start the United Nations General Assembly Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who called for Israel to be wiped off the map is set to speak -- Wednesday.
Now why is that sparking outrage even more -- new show.
Because Wednesday is -- -- tour the holiest Jewish holiday of the year that we spoke with former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani about the controversy.
They're -- yes sir how are you -- nice to see you do.
Very well I wanna start first with that president Ahmadinejad and -- your overall view of him coming to the United States and addressing in the general assembly once again.
We'll -- always thought it was an outrage -- -- -- we were used to be successful in keeping.
People out like him in the past but you know -- happens and this guy is a I don't know what he -- and he's obviously a killer a murderer.
I think a maniac.
Someone who has announced over and over again that he wants to see the destruction of the State of Israel.
In many ways you'd like to see the destruction the United States of America and he's -- you know the status of speaking as -- head of state.
With a with a UN that.
At least a larger segments of which are very sympathetic to him.
And something has to be of great concern to us because it this is a man who's determined to become a nuclear power.
And it seems like the president of the United States.
For the United States announced yesterday on sixty minutes.
That this is just a noise.
This idea of Iran becoming nuclear just noise that he blocks out and that is a frightening statement.
By the president of the United States.
Is there any way it took prevented him from coming United States or is it by virtue of the fact that the United Nations is in New York.
The senate special I'm Clegg has many Americans probably sitting out there thinking why in the world -- -- permitted to be here well.
When we had a president that was a lot tougher namely Ronald Reagan who I.
-- -- work -- we knew that we were successful in keeping Arafat out that is not be a little part of -- -- of state.
But the reality is that is really what concerns there were concerns me is that when -- preventing him from becoming a nuclear power.
And the president United States take a very cavalier attitude about it which he describes as he he he he deals with these.
Claims of Iran becoming a nuclear power by saying it's noise that he blocks out.
And you know governor Romney makes slight little statement that somebody can misinterpret.
-- in the news for five days Obama makes an astounding.
Irresponsible statement like this and you know it's ignored.
You may thought and the fact that he's going to be speaking on -- could pour.
Which of course is that one of the as the holiest of days to Israelis to Jews and America.
And and this is a man who wants to wipe Israel off the map that he is said there like a tumor mean he's done nothing but so let me.
Whose idea was it to have a speed that they like immediately speak today or on Thursday or some other -- Well I don't know why -- -- shows the lack of sensitivity.
To work to do what's going on in the total lack of concern about about the State of Israel which.
Frankly I don't think it's very high on the president's agenda -- the president.
The New York today he won on the view.
But he -- -- would Netanyahu or any other world leaders he was here a couple of days ago when he visited beyoncé and Jay-Z and collective forty grand -- person.
And didn't have enough time to meet with Netanyahu.
Which gives us a sense of where Israel -- in his priority scheme which is not very high -- he announced.
He announced on sixty minutes that Israel just one of our allies.
As if it is our most important ally in the Middle East and he treats them almost as if they're not an ally.
I don't understand why why I'm trying to look at it like from his perspective why in the world would he go on the -- Not meet with Netanyahu brown the prime minister of Israel.
He need Diaz these bad fund raisers which sale which everybody does but did you -- such -- bad bad appears to politically elected team here referring to the Middle East with that Ahmadinejad as noisy can you think of any.
Explanation from his side.
Yes it did -- it displays I think his priorities.
His priorities have been to be much more concerned about the Palestinian Authority -- the State of Israel put a lot more pressure on Israel.
The Palestinian Authority to be much more concerned about.
Trying to meet with and then negotiate with.
-- -- and the Ayatollah a couple of months back you wrote a letter to the Ayatollah seeking to.
Seeking to -- an attempt to negotiate with him -- -- to -- to create fear.
That there might be a massive military strike if in fact.
Iran does this totally irresponsible thing of trying to become a nuclear power.
President completely seems to miss the real danger of a nuclear Iran which is an Iran that can hand nuclear material off.
To the terrorists that they -- presently.
Sponsoring the terrorists that they are presently giving arms to.
If they have nuclear material that they can hand to these twenty -- thirty terrorist groups that they are presently sponsoring.
We could very easily have a dirty bomb go off and won the New York Los Angeles Washington.
And then the Iranian government will do what they did about there.
Plot to kill -- Saudi Arabian ambassador.
Which the president seems to have ignored also at least in terms of any kind of definitive response they'll just lie about it.
Well last night on sixty minutes he referred to what has gone out and Libya and and also trying to figure out what contacts -- what he could possibly mean about.
But he refers to -- at with a very poor choice of words as bump in the road at least -- You know I candidate is far more profound than a bump in the road but found -- -- -- Imagine.
How that must.
How how much how how that affects the families of of our now slaughtered ambassador.
And the other diplomat in the two seals it died -- death was a bump in the road the killing of 20000 people.
In Syria is a bump in the road the killing of our -- of our soldiers in Afghanistan.
Is a bump in the road this is an outrageous statement.
But it's beyond just being a mistake.
It indicates -- the president has a different priority for what's going on in the Middle East and what I think the priority should be.
And it may give us some misunderstanding of why that as to why the proper security wasn't there.
I think when the president caption Ben laden.
In addition to kind of organizing administration to try to do Hollywood movies about what a superhero yes.
I think with the president -- stage did was I think he I think he thought he had defeated al-Qaeda.
They said he was gonna move on to Asia now.
We can't move on we can't move on because there are thousands and thousands of people in this part of the world that want to kill us have now succeeded in doing it.
Chris Stewart was the first American ambassador killed since Jimmy Carter.
I mean I should send a pretty powerful message as too.
They're not being really the proper security and the proper understanding.
And how dangerous Islamic extremist terrorism is and what have you ever heard the president United States used the words Islamic extremist.
He had -- -- -- must do something with the Israeli Palestinian conflict.
I don't see and I don't even maybe there's some behind the scenes but diplomatic work being done but nothing has been done there we see.
Israel bar our greatest allies in the region Odyssey have very concerned they are asking the United States for some sort of help and we -- -- things get leaked to the New York Times which says that they can't do it themselves and we don't seem.
We save our greatest ally but we seemed a little -- be throwing them on -- the bus.
Brought him out a little bit throwing -- on the -- I think we are throwing him under the bus and the fact is that this is beyond -- pop politics or what he -- somebody you know.
The prime minister of Israel has to make eight.
Very difficult decision I would not want to be in issues I wouldn't have to make me wanna make a decision.
They're very very critical decision as to whether he takes action or it doesn't.
He's entitled to a meeting with the president United States so they can sit down face to face discussed this with politics put aside with posturing put aside.
It's the height of irresponsibility that a president that doesn't get all of -- morals as far as security briefings anyway.
Won't sit down with him and talk to him but yet he's begging to try to talk to -- -- -- and -- the -- What do you what do make of his video controversy the past couple ways it's a YouTube video that has you know which is.
Has been used as a -- White House came out -- that that was the first of provocation behind Libya and Egypt -- now they're dialing that back.
But -- Ahmadinejad as he is saying that he's -- terribly insulted by the video in the United States is doing nothing.
Yet he claims said -- insults our crime that he comes here and insults everybody and his brother.
But what do you think of the -- video blog.
-- video as an excuse for a well planned well executed attack I mean that that that attack certainly the one and Libya.
What's planned for quite some -- this video goes back to June or July -- California time to act on this video if it was going to be.
In the words of president Obama's administration a spontaneous attack.
I mean that I can't imagine how -- anytime they would have concluded this was a spontaneous attack since there were rocket propelled hand grenades used in other.
Massive weapons that we used in this attack -- you don't spontaneously.
Just acquire these weapons.
And start and start using him to kill an American ambassador.
Look at Greta I have to come to the conclusion with his comments about this just being you know bump in the road and his comments about it's just noise.
And the comments about how this is a spontaneous attack.
That this administration dangerously has its head in the sand about the continuing danger of Islamic extremist terrorism which they seem to want to write off.
May I think -- guys -- thank you sir thank you --
