Israeli Prime Minister's Passionate Plea to International Community: 'I Ask You to Support Israel's Right to Defend Itself

"I ask you to stand with Israel because it is right."


On Tuesday, a U.N. delegation lead by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon met with Israel's leaders, including Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu.

During the visit, Netanyahu showed the Secretary evidence of the Hamas rockets that have been raining down from Gaza for the past few weeks.

The Prime Minister also displayed detailed photos of the locations in Gaza where Hamas had dug tunnels inside a kindergarten and near a school.

When showing the maps and photographs of the tunnels that crossed from Gaza into Israel, Netanyahu explained:

"The international community has pressed us to give cement to Gaza to build schools, hospitals and homes. And now we see what has happened to those deliveries of cement. They have not been used to build kindergartens, but to build a tunnel that penetrates our territory so that Hamas can blow up our kindergartens and murder our children."

Netanyahu also gave what appeared to be an impromptu address to a group described by the Prime Minister's Facebook page as "ambassadors." In the brief statement, the Prime Minster delivered a clear warning to the rest of the world about radical Islam.

In the short clip, Netanyahu was clear in what he wanted from the crowd, "I ask not only for your support... I ask you to support Israel's right to defend itself, and not to sanctify the idea."
