Giuliani started his speech describing his approach to war on terror: “But why should we look at for an example, to Europe that is a failure – they can’t even defend themselves. Frightened, France is frightened of terrorists. We’re not frightened of anyone, not just because we’re strong but because we’re right, and we’re decent, and we love people. And in order to love people and accomplish it you have to have courage. Cowards can’t protect people. So Donald Trump seeks his guidance from the soul of America. And I think your prime minister does ‘cause his really – he may not like it when I say it, he’s really an American. He loves America, he knows American politics, as well I bet as I do. And my goodness they’re now torturing him because he loves cigars. I love cigars and I’ve had more than one with him and… so did Winston Churchill by the way. I tell you if the world was like it is now then, with the people in America who are going after Trump and the people here who are going after… They would have put Winston Churchill in jail. But his paintings would have been worth a lot from jail right? He would sit there doing his paintings.”

The former New York City mayor continued attacking Europe: “Since President Trump been in office, thank God, they’re afraid of them. They’re afraid of him because he is willing to take the burden of being seen as .. I don’t know a bad person by the press, and Europe and… you know the thing about Donald Trump you gotta understand? He likes that. Because he doesn’t really think… you know I always wondered when I traveled throughout Europe and they would say well America should learn from us. I say wait a sec. Why do you think we fought a war of independence if we want to learn from you. Why do you think we became the strongest economy on Earth, if you think we’re going to follow France, Italy, Greece, even Germany and Scandinavia, although Scandinavia is pretty darn good, they’re not all the same.”

“Every great American president has had a terrible press. The press is usually on the wrong side of history. And right now they’re on the wrong side of history. They have become apologists for terrorists in some cases, particularly in the way they deal with it. And what I’m specifically talking about is not terrorism in general but the Palestinian Authority. The one thing the Palestinian Authority has done well, that we haven’t done as well, I mean Israel and the United States now – they’ve made themselves sympathetic. They’re a bunch of sympathetic murderers. And I see in the United States how that happens. You have a man who kills a police officer and everybody becomes sympathetic. And they find all kinds of excuses for why he’s really innocent or why he couldn’t help himself. I don’t know what it is in the human personality but there is this fascination with criminality that allows people to become extremely sympathetic to them and turn the whole thing opposite.”

Marc Belzberg, Founder and Chairman of OneFamily: “As the Mayor of New York City at the time of the 9-11 attacks, Mr. Giuliani managed everything that occurred that day from a building across the street from the Twin Towers that itself was half destroyed. Mr. Giuliani, who proved himself that day to be a master of Emergency Crisis Management, is joining hands today with the OneFamily organization of Israel, who have become the masters of Long Term Crisis Management. The first is necessary to save lives during and immediately following the attack. The latter is necessary to ameliorate the long term devastating effects of terror on the surviving victims, by escorting them slowly back into the workforce and into becoming productive, functioning citizens of the country in which they live.”
