Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Thursday he will address the United Nations General Assembly in New York next month. "Today in Tehran, 120 countries' delegates heard blood libels against Israel and said nothing.


"That is why I am going to the UN's General Assembly to tell the nations of the world in a clear voice the truth about the terror regime of Iran which represents the greatest threat to world peace".

Meanwhile, efforts to arrange a meeting between Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama continue. Relations between the two are tense over disagreements on the timetable for a possible military operation in Iran.


The prime minister is planning to speak out against Iran's nuclear program in a particularly poignant speech in order to increase pressure on the international community in the hopes it will work to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.


Meanwhile, senior state officials insinuated that the US will back any decision Israel will make on a strike in Iran ruling out a possible diplomatic crisis between the two nations.


"We are not worried about a crisis with the US, no matter what we decide," a state official said.


Netanyahu is scheduled to depart for New York immediately after Yom Kippur and will return to Israel three days later.
