Netanyahu stares down UN members for 45 seconds of deafening silence; ‘brutal, magnificent, unbelievable’

Israeli Prime minister Bibi Netanyahu brought the Internet to its knees with a powerful moment of silence in the middle of his impassioned United Nations speech, Thursday.

Netanyahu didn’t use the moment of silence to offer a prayer, instead he blasted U.N. nations for their “utter silence” on Iran’s threats to his country and people. He shamed the U.N. members with an intense 45 second silent stare down and drilled the point home.

“Seventy years after the murder of 6 million Jews, Iran’s rulers promise to destroy my country, murder my people; and the response from this body — the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here — has been absolutely nothing,” Netanyahu said.

“Utter silence. Deafening silence.”

Netanyahu went silent and seemingly stared down everyone in the room.

“Perhaps you can now understand why Israel is not joining you in celebrating this [Iran nuclear] deal,” he continued. “If Iran’s rulers were working to destroy your countries, perhaps you’d be less enthusiastic about the deal.”

Of course, there was mockery from the progressive left who have an ingrained contempt for Israel, but Netanyahu’s big moment wasn’t lost on everyone. Not by a long shot.

Brutal, magnificent, and awe inspiring were just some of the words used to describe the moment:
