Depute Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Sunday called on the international community to declare the diplomatic channel with Iran over its nuclear program a failure.

Speaking with Israel Radio, Ayalon said the Iranians must understand that they have reached the edge of the international community's patience, and that if they continue their actions, all options will be on the table.

Ayalon specified that "all options" do not just refer to Israeli action, but also to action by NATO, the United States and other forces.

Asked how much time remains for sanctions and threats to take effect, Ayalon said "several weeks." If the Iranian's choice is made starker, he said, they are capable of changing their policy, as they did in 2003 when they grew nervous over an American attack following the Iraq invasion.
