Apparently, the Israeli ambassador to UN, Ron Prosor, will invite Netanyahu to speak — a first. Prosor is currently vice president of the GA.

Prosor has been an active ambassador, leading the effort to have diplomats boycott Ahmadinejad’s address on Wednesday. In the event, the United States’ delegation boycotted Ahmadinejad’s speech. The Canadian delegation left the assembly as he took the podium.

A US spokesman announced the decision on Wednesday morning, citing Ahmadinejad’s anti-Israel comments while in New York and the fact that the address fell on Yom Kippur.
