Analysis: In stark contrast to Abbas, Netanyahu radiates optimism at UN

editor 29 September 2016

By Herb Keinon.. This time there were no props – like a cartoon of a bomb – and no gimmicks, such as a 45-second pause to ram home a point, when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the UN General Assembly on Thursday (September 22, 2016). Instead, there was a long, 40-minute speech that broke little new ground, but radiated – in stark contrast to the speech given by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas just a few minutes before him – a sense of optimism.
