Netanyahu opens UN speech with praise of Israeli tech

“We’re in the midst of a great revolution of Israel’s standing in the world,” Netanyahu says at the start of his speech to the UN General Assembly.

“So many countries have finally woken up to what Israel can do for them, they now realize what Warren Buffet and Google have known for years. Israel is the innovation nation,” he says, praising Israeli technology in a number of fields.

“In recent years, Israel has provided intelligence that has prevented dozens of major terror attacks around the world. We have saved countless lives. You may not know this, but your governments do. They’re working closely with Israel to keep your country safe.”
