President Shimon Peres said on Monday that all options should be on the table concerning the Iranian threat, including the military option.

Speaking at the opening of the 18th Knesset's winter session, Peres said Iran is a threat to the whole world, not just to Israel.

"The military option is not the preferred option, but in my eyes and in the eyes of Israel it is a serious one," Peres said.

"The Iranian government's policy is not just an act, it must be treated as a real threat in the ugliest, most dangerous sense," the president added.
