Speaking to the Jerusalem Post in New York, Likud MK Danny Danon said he thought Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech sent a clear message to Iran and to the international community.

"I think it said very clearly, we are not naive, not stupid, and we want to see action. But most importantly, that we will keep all options on the table, including military options."

When asked if he had heard the Iranian delegation's response to Israeli's speech, Danon said simply, "I think that they should listen to international inspectors, and understand that there are certain facts that cannot be hidden.

"Because we live in the region, if they make the mistake of mis-analyzing the real intentions of Iran, it would be a major mistake for the rest of the world, but fatal for Israel," Danon said. "We [Israel] don't have the luxury of taking the risk and waiting to see whether Iran is actually developing nuclear capabilities for peaceful purposes or for weapons capabilities. We cannot gamble on that."
