As morning dawns in New York, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to deliver his address to the UN General Assembly, while Israeli and Jewish protests against him in the city — due to his government’s judicial overhaul plan — are expected to reach a crescendo.
Netanyahu is expected to start speaking at 9:15 a.m. local time, or 4:15 p.m. in Israel.
Commentators expect his speech to touch on the Iranian threat, regional peace prospects and the fight over democracy at home.
We will be covering his speech, protests, fallout and more here on the liveblog.
