VIDEO: Netanyahu's long silent stare at UN over 'deafening silence' on Iran threats
Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a speech at the UN on Thursday, in which he castigated the international body for not criticising Iran over threats made to the existence of his country.
The Israeli leader said the UN had done nothing in response to recent comments by Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that "there will be no Israel in 25 years".
For 44 seconds the Israeli leader stood, in silence, and stared at the half-full room of delegates from countries around the world.
Some on Twitter praised the silent stare.
Others, including an editor at Israeli daily Haaretz, ridiculed the flourish.
