So here’s the video of Bibi’s speech for those (like me) who missed it live. For those who want to see how a speech is made, have a watch. Poise, careful wording, balance between stressing the hopes and the perils ahead — it’s all there. I don’t agree with everything Bibi believes (or says he believes), but this was one of those times when I’m glad he’s our prime minister.
(The video is in four parts; I found a one-link video uploaded to YouTube, but it had simultaneous Hebrew translation that was a bit annoying. Daniel Sass of Efrat has uploaded the speech in four parts and, unlike many who do this sort of thing, didn’t miss a word. Kudos, Daniel.)
