Just hours after meeting with Obama on Monday, Prime Minister Netanyahu began his speech at AIPAC, referring to Jerusalem as “the eternal, united capital if Israel”, almost as if to thumb his nose Obama and his call for a return to 1967 borders.
Netanyahu said all options are on the table to keep Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb. “The Jewish state will not allow those who seek our destruction to possess the means to achieve that goal,” he said. “A nuclear armed Iran must be stopped.”
To raucous applause he continued, “Ladies and gentleman, if it looks like a duck, if it walks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck, then what is it? … That’s right, it’s a duck! But this duck is a nuclear duck. It’s time the world started calling a duck a duck.”
