Israel is willing to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities even if doing so only delayed the Islamic Republic's nuclear progress for a few years, Ambassador to the US Michael Oren told Bloomberg in Washington Wednesday.

“One, two, three, four years are a long time in the Middle East - look what’s happened in the last year,” he said in reference to the ongoing upheaval throughout the Arab world.

“Diplomacy hasn’t succeeded” in halting Iran's nuclear program, Oren warned, adding that “we’ve come to a very critical juncture where important decisions do have to be made.”

Oren described the Iranian nuclear threat as unprecedented in Israel's 64-year existence.
