-- prime minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu set to -- world leaders to help crush Iran's chances of building a nuclear weapon that is his goal when he speaks before the UN this morning.
He's also expected to urge using threats of force.
In order to achieve that goal in his speech comes as Iranian President -- Ahmadinejad.
Who spoke yesterday claimed that Israel.
Has no roots in the Middle East.
Which as you can imagine.
Warmly received he has notoriously said that Israel he believes should be quote wiped off the map.
I'm joined now by ambassador -- killer man he is former us ambassador to the UN also a Fox News contributor.
And has traveled here with the prime minister of Israel to you are app for the week thank you so much ambassador good to have you here today.
Thank you -- good to be with you.
Talk to me a little bit about what we should expect today from prime minister Netanyahu.
-- -- you know yesterday we Rhode and insane.
Speech full of diatribes and fantasies and a -- optic.
Extreme speech I think what you were here today is a very -- Very responsible.
And very very.
Read his speech which will spell out where we are at this moment in time especially off the what we hood yesterday.
No -- yesterday was you -- -- -- the holiest Jewish holiday.
Which is actually a day of atonement and I think what the world has to do especially off the yesterday.
But had to do long ago is the tone for the fact that that there's a -- -- of this.
Extreme fundamentalist person to even and to the United States and take the stage.
And old soul not listen carefully to what he has to say I think what we will hear from the prime minister there is a way golf course to the world.
And telling the world this and you -- disbursement listened to him take him at face value they could seriously.
So we know that there have been some tensions between President Obama and prime minister Netanyahu that there was no meeting that was scheduled between the two.
I can can you.
Confirm for -- at that meeting was requested.
By prime minister Netanyahu and what what happens now -- in I was there is any chance of that happening.
Well I'm I'm not sure meeting was requested I think that the prime minister as well aware of the fact that the president is on the campaign trail and as far as I and -- he.
Refused about twenty heads of state so I I don't think this should be taken -- maybe I do those things that they're meeting between the prime minister of Israel.
President of the United -- should happen it should be.
A very very important meeting it will probably be the most crucial meeting between the prime minister of Israel -- the president of Israel -- the president the United States.
Ever because of what we have is the destiny.
Of the Jewish people and in fact the civilization as we know it and want to to continue.
And the fact that Iran is on this quest for nuclear weapons is something which those -- leave those shall discuss in earnest.
In private tell each other the truth look each other in the all right.
And make sure that they both understand the gravity of the situation that.
You know meaning you can't help but.
Feel that there's a very different.
Hone in terms of the urgency of that and I can since it immediately in your voice that you feel that this is.
A moment of crisis.
For the Israeli people.
And that's something must be done now.
And we heard Benjamin Netanyahu say that you know -- wait what are we waiting for exactly.
So will he expressed today.
It is specifics about why he believes that now is the moment to act and that if -- this moment is messed.
It could be very perilous for your people.
I certainly believe so -- I think you know army just.
Imagine the weight and the responsibility on the shoulders of prime minister and that -- no I mean being the prime minister of Israel.
Is on any given day probably of the toughest drove in the world.
But today being that neither of the country which is probably the only country in the world which is -- pretty threatened by another country.
-- that wants to wipe it off the face of the map imagine the gravity -- -- the responsibility.
I mean I I the very good night sleep on the play and I'm not sure the prime minister had much sleep I think he feels the weight of that responsibility and I think what -- will be.
Saying I ID imagine is to the world listened to that person and do something before it's too late we've hood.
You know we we need the Jewish people and the world -- that from horrendous price.
Just seventy years ago we've been less than that.
For listening to a tyrants diatribes and threat from dismissing them as the woods of music we cannot to fold.
To do that again less than seventy years later.
Mysterious thing ambassador Gillman thank you very much -- watch with great interest of course prime minister Netanyahu speech.
Later today thank you sir thank you -- that before one of.
