Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave U.N. leaders the silent treatment during his speech on Thursday to protest the Iran nuclear deal.

Lashing out at the U.N. General Assembly, which gathered in New York this week for its annual meeting, Netanyahu gave the body a stern glare for full 45 seconds.

"Iran's leaders promised to destroy my country, murder my people and the response from this body, the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here has been absolutely nothing. Utter silence. Deafening silence," he said.

The Israeli leader also hit back at what he called "brazen lies" about Israel made in earlier U.N. speeches.  

Netanyahu has been vehemently opposed to the Iran deal, which he claims will "allow a country that vows to annihilate us to develop nuclear weapons."

Last month, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei reportedly said that Israel wouldn't exist in 25 years. However, President Barack Obama has assured Jewish leaders that he is committed to Israel's security.
