The Likud party on Thursday strongly criticized Prime Minister Naftali Bennett ahead of his speech at the United Nations General Assembly next week. Bennett's spokesman said that his speech would be different in style from Netanyahu's speeches - there would be no aids, Bristol boards, illustrations, or other props. The core of the speech will be the defense of the State of Israel against those in the world who judge it unfairly, including international institutions and the UN.

Part of the speech will be dedicated to the Iranian threat, but instead of a lengthy warning about the progress of Iran's nuclear weapon, Bennett will simply pledge that Israel will "do what is necessary" to defend itself against Iran. The Likud responded: "Bennett's obsession with differentiating himself from Netanyahu is costing the State of Israel dearly in the struggle against the coronavirus, the struggle against the Iranian nuclear threat and the political struggle against the Palestinians."

Netanyahu didn't draw cartoons, he used those items to try and help people grasp what the reality of the situation is. He managed to get his point across to the whole world in spite of media refusing to quote him in full context. Bennett is about to find out that Bibi used those devices so that photos and videos would actually carry the message that dishonest reporters refused to.
