Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said the world must stand together to stop Iran from gaining access to a nuclear weapon in his much-anticipated address to the U.S. Congress. Al Jazeera’s senior political analyst, Marwan Bishara, analyses Netanyahu’s speech arguing that the Israeli prime minister chose to focus on Iran’s nuclear programme to avoid having to address the Palestine question. He argues further that only when speaking about Iran can Netanyahu speak for the Jewish people, only then can he invoke the Holocaust and Nazi Germany. Its the kind of rhetoric that makes him look presidential and instills fear in people’s hearts.
