Speaking Monday, President Shimon Peres that Israel needed to keep all options open on Iran, including the military option. “We are faced with numerous efforts by Iran to achieve nuclear weapons,” Peres told MKs at the last session of the 18th Knesset. “This is a clear and present danger for the whole world, not just Israel.”

Peres added that “the military option is not the preferred one, but as far as Israel and the rest of the world is concerned, it is a serious option. Iran's policies are not just a show. We must take the threat seriously.”
