Republican John McCain warned Monday that a nuclear-armed Iran would threaten Israel as he courted Jewish voters wary of Democrat Barack Obama. "The threats to Israel's security are large and growing, and America's commitment must grow as well," the likely Republican presidential nominee said in a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. "Rather than sitting down unconditionally with the Iranian president or supreme leader in the hope that we can talk sense into them, we must create the real-world pressures that will peacefully but decisively change the path they are on," McCain said.
