Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Tuesday speech before the United Nations in which he said Israel is willing to stand alone to stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons was a "blistering, paint-peeling attack" on President Barack Obama, says The Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes.

Appearing on Fox News Channel's "Special Report with Bret Baier,"  Hayes said the speech clearly indicated that Netanyahu didn't get an offer of support when he met with President Barack Obama at the White House on Monday.

"Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons," Netanyahu told the U.N. General Assembly in New York. "If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone."

"Would he have given that speech if he had heard from President Obama yesterday that there's no chance Israel will have to stand alone?" Hayes asked.

"Obviously, that's not what he heard," Hayes said. "So he felt the need to make this speech, and to basically say, this is on us."

Fellow panelist Charles Krauthammer added, "The Israelis now understand they are alone in the world like the Czechs in 1938, and that's how they see it. And they will not allow themselves to go the way of Czechoslovakia."
