President Shimon Peres spoke at a joint press conference in Jerusalem with visiting US President Barack Obama. "There is a common vision uniting us," President Peres stated of Israel and the United States. Peres went on to warn that "the greatest danger is a nuclear Iran. We have tried non-military means but other options are on the table."
Peres added, "Hamas remains a terror organization that targets innocent people. On the northern border is Iran's proxy Hezbollah. Hezbollah is destroying Lebanon and supporting the brutal massacre of the Syrian people... fortunately Syria's nuclear capacity was destroyed but unfortunately there are still chemical weapons."
