SHARE Netanyahu uses Derek Jeter analogy while talking about terrorism

UNITED NATIONS — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly Monday, comparing his country’s recent bombing campaign in Gaza to the U.S.-led strikes against militants in Iraq and Syria, saying Hamas and the Islamic State group share the same goal of world domination.

He railed against countries who condemned Israel for its war with Hamas while world leaders praisedPresident Barack Obama for attacking Islamic State militants and other extremists.

And Netanyahu managed to incorporate a Derek Jeter analogy into his speech.

“To say that Iran doesn’t practice terrorism is like saying Derek Jeter never played shortstop for the New York Yankees,” he said.
