Netanyahu takes international community to task for silence over Iran’s genocidal threats


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a rebuke to the international community for failing to confront Iran over its threats to destroy Israel. To the room full of delegates, he declared, “Seventy years after the murder of six million Jews, Iran’s rulers promise to destroy my country, to murder my people, and the response from this body, the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here, has been absolutely nothing. Utter silence. Deafening silence.” He then proceeded to stand in silence, staring at the audience for 45 seconds. He continued, “Perhaps you can now understand why Israel is not joining you in celebrating this deal. If Iran’s rulers were working to destroy your country, perhaps you’d be less enthusiastic about the deal.” The Israeli prime minister proclaimed that Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei “made his genocidal intentions clear” when only a month ago he declared, “There will be no Israel in 25 years.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s opposition to the Iran deal reached in July. He said, “We see a world celebrating this bad deal, rushing to embrace and do business with a regime openly committed to our destruction.” He reminded the international community of Iran’s continued support for terrorism around the globe, the regional destruction it sows through its proxy groups, and the egregious human rights violations it commits against its citizens. He reminded the global powers of their failure to enforce the six previous UN Security Council Resolutions imposed on Iran that it continuously violated and admonished the global powers to enforce the recently-inked deal. He advised, “Keep Iran’s feet to the fire . . . And make sure that Iran’s violations aren’t swept under the Persian rug.”

The Israeli leader also warned about the dangers of Iran’s nefarious uses of the sanctions relief it is slated to receive as part of the nuclear deal: buying weapons, developing satellites (as part of missile programs), and supporting its regional terrorist proxies. He asked, “You think Iran is doing that to advance peace? You think hundreds of billions of dollars in sanctions relief and fat contracts will turn this rapacious tiger into a kitten?”


An Israeli couple were killed in a shooting while driving between Itamar and Elan Moreh in the West Bank.

The assailants reportedly shot multiple times from at least two weapons, a rifle and a handgun, before speeding away in their car, which was later abandoned. The Times of Israel reported that four children were also in the car but were unhurt.

Reports are emerging of clashes between Israelis and Palestinians in the area.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon criticized Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for using “inflammatory rhetoric” regarding the Temple Mount, the holiest cite in Judaism and the third-holiest in Islam. Abbas proclaimed in a speech two weeks ago that Jews would not be allowed to defile holy sites in Jerusalem with their “filthy feet,” and blessed “every drop of blood … spilled for Jerusalem.” (via


When Coca-Cola and Amazon needed help to get users on board their latest apps, they turned to Tomer Hen, a 21-year-old from Tel Aviv. The ad agencies launching Coca-Cola’s loyalty app in Berlin and Amazon’s shopping app in India are both depending on Israel’s MobCo Media  to get users on board. MobCo, an engagement-driven performance agency for mobile apps, is led by 21-year-old Tomer Hen, widely recognized as one of the world’s foremost experts in exploiting the marketing potential of mobile devices. His multimillion-shekel businesses, Tomer Hen Mobile Marketing Consulting and Mobile Marketing College, grew out of his 10th-grade realization of the untapped opportunities in the mobile ad space. Bootstrapped by his bar mitzvah money, he enjoyed swift success in designing and placing mobile ads and then teaching others how to monetize mobile. He made his first million before graduating high school in Netanya. “In late 2013 I founded MobCo Media as an internal venture of Mobile Marketing College, to be the bridge between advertisers and publishers,” he tells ISRAEL21c. “There are recruiters looking for hot apps to promote and ad managers looking for traffic, and we manage both sides.” MobCo Media grew quickly and is now handling about 500 campaigns in 160 countries; clients have included Gett,, Angry Birds and Candy Crush. Hen’s company collects a fee every time someone pays to download or use the customer’s app or ad. “We’re also consulting for app developers because there are so many talented developers who don’t know the business of marketing, monetization and investor relations. We manage the business together with them so within six to 12 months they can handle it on their own,” says Hen, who lives and works in Tel Aviv and oversees 14 employees. (via Israel21c)
