Former US President Bill Clinton believes a nuclear-armed Iran would be unlikely to launch the weapon at Israel, he said during a Wednesday interview with Fox News.

"The Iranians, I think, would be crazy to launch a nuclear weapon, because their whole society would disappear," Clinton told Fox's Bill O'Reilly.

But the former president did not take the consequences of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon lightly.

"What I think would happen is you have all this fissile material, then you give it to a terrorist group and they have a series of suitcase bombs, and that could terrify and paralyze the world without fear of a nuclear cloud over Jerusalem."

Clinton also said that America should keep the military option on the table, but noted that sabotage efforts showed that "there may be more than one way to skin a cat."
