Israel Wants ‘Red Line’ on Iran

Differences have emerged on how to deal with the Islamic Republic’s atomic ambitions between Israel and countries like the United States, with Israel growing increasingly hawkish as its leaders suggest that Iran is nearing the ability to build nuclear weapons.

Iran “will not stop its advancement of the Iranian nuclear program,” Netanyahu said in the Sunday address to his cabinet. “Iran must not have a nuclear weapon.”
