British Prime Minister David Cameron told members of London's Jewish community that Israel should give sanctions more time to work.

“I have said to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that now is not the time for Israel to resort to military action," Cameron said Monday night at the United Jewish Israel Appeal annual fundraising dinner in London.

But, Cameron told the crowd of  700 Jewish community leaders and supporters, “In the long term, if Iran makes the wrong choice, nothing is off the table. A nuclear-armed Iran is a threat to Israel. And a threat to the world.

"And this country will work unwaveringly to prevent that from happening,” the British leader pledged.
