On Sunday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed last week’s incident of a UN interpreter broadcasting her opinion to the entire General Assembly.

During a meeting of the General assembly last week, comprising all 193 UN member states, nine resolutions against Israel, and not one relating to any other country, were put forward.

Unaware that her mic was hot, an interpreter broadcast her feelings on the matter to everyone in the General Assembly, saying: “I mean, I think when you have five statements — not five — like a total of 10 resolutions on Israel and Palestine, there’s gotta be something, c’est un peu trop, non? [It’s a bit much, no?] I mean, I know there’s other really bad shit happening, but no one says anything about the other stuff.”

Many delegates laughed, and the shocked interpreter immediately apologized.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, naturally, has now voiced his own opinions on the issue.

“I hope nothing happens to the interpreter, but at any rate, a place of employment is guaranteed for her in Israel if there is a development in that direction,” he said.

Netanyahu also called her ‘brave,’ offering a position if she were to be dismissed from her position at the UN.

According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s office, Netanyahu showed a video of the gaffe to his cabinet, saying that “There are moments that tear the hypocrisy off the unending attacks against us and this brave interpreter did so.”

A video of the incident can be seen here:
