Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu promised the Israeli public that he is capable of "pushing the button" to strike Iranian nuclear facilities if he felt he had to, in a Channel 2 investigative report aired Monday.

"I guarantee that as if I'm re-elected as prime minister I will not allow Iran to get a nuclear bomb," Netanyahu said in an interview. Asked if he was really capable of "pressing the button," Netanyahu replied: "I am capable, if I have to. I hope that I won't have to."
