May have unnoticed though you may have lost state in all the noise about the -- but you may have noticed.
The Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a very strong speech at the United Nations General Assembly -- today.
In which he said that that Israel essentially will attack Iran if it feels it needs to.
Netanyahu seemed to imply that Israel felt fairly alone.
On the world stage in dealing with the Iranian threat of nuclear weapons right now and -- is that -- prep bad.
To -- Act alone Judy -- -- of course Fox News contributor and knows everything about everything.
That one of the speech first -- it was it was pretty darned straight for it it was a very tough speech it was a speech aimed Jonathan at in his -- audience not an American audience but of course it was -- here.
And interpreted here.
Israel is going to stand alone was prepared -- stand -- was the theme that he wanted to Israelis to understand he already had a meeting.
A side meeting with the president it was just for people you and my understanding -- the meeting was extremely.
It was very very straightforward but that.
President Obama sad look.
I'm going to test the Iranian intention I'm not buying this on -- and that's what the Israelis.
Really wanted to hear them so the people around ten Yahoo!.
Are saying they were pleased with the outcome the Israeli press.
Not so much the Israeli press is skeptical saying.
Did he really change the tone change the -- on.
Did we hear a lot of Iran O phobia -- are we kind of behind the curve here was this -- Chinese moment the president of Iran.
But there was one newspaper which is the free newspaper which is owned by someone who's very pro Netanyahu.
Who said look at what he did.
He moved the bar for military action.
Before the Israelis -- we're talking military action by anti Israel before the Israelis had been talking about.
If Iran would not abandon in Richmond that is making the fuel they need for a bomb.
In the speech yesterday he spoke very clearly about Iran getting a bomb.
So now not only is the bar higher you but also he and the president are on the same page.
What did you make all his comment which -- was interesting he described.
The former Iranian President Ahmadinejad as a wolf in wolves clothing the clothing and the new president has -- room -- As a wolf in sheep's clothing I mean you've watched -- -- was so many years would you say that that is safe.
I think that's the way the Israeli -- Feared this might play out than in other words nothing has really changed the Iranians are just buying for time as they have all along.
Most people who heard grew on me out and I met with -- it's -- the foreign minister while -- was here.
I think half of New York met with what either one of them -- Laughter what -- it was very very unusual was the tone.
The uses the word Israel for example before it had always been the zionist entity.
Now it's Israel they are actually complaining about person someone he and the state they acknowledged to they're talking about wanting to do a deal.
And most Americans who follow Iran closely say this is a very unusual moment.
-- very unusual I mean you can call denying nobody can deny that there is a changing tone.
Equally you go back to the old adage.
They're the Reagan -- you -- -- to -- exactly or in this case test and verify what was done was as good as -- I don't know this race distrusted dismantle and then there and then -- exactly.
Is going to be you know what was interesting was that.
The Iranians reacted rather sharply.
To the Netanyahu.
Obama meeting they didn't like what they had didn't they didn't like hearing that.
The United States had Israel's back I didn't like what Kerry said about.
Not getting rid of the sanctions until -- -- and actually do something as opposed to talk about earnings something.
So I think they understand now having heard.
Not only from the president on the telephone.
But from the Israeli is and through the speeches at the UN.
That they have a way to go before people are persuaded by this sudden new line that's coming from Iran that this is an exceptional moment I thought that I would.
