At UN, Trump Calls on Mideast Nations to Normalize Ties with Israel

(Times of Israel) Eric Cortellessa - Speaking at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, President Donald Trump accused Tehran of trafficking in "monstrous anti-Semitism" and engaging in a "fanatical quest for nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them." "Thankfully, there is a growing recognition in the wider Middle East that the countries of the region share common interest in battling extremism and unleashing economic opportunity. That is why it's so important to have full normalized relations between Israel and its neighbors." "For 40 years, the world has listened to Iran's rulers as they lash out on everyone else for the problems they alone have created," he said. "Last year, the country's supreme leader stated that Israel is 'a malignant cancerous tumor that has to be removed and eradicated. It is possible, and it will happen.' America will never tolerate such anti-Semitic hate. Fanatics have long used hatred of Israel to distract from their own failures."
