Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday emphasized the need for serious sanctions in order to confront the Iranian nuclear threat. "We are operating with vigor to make a difference so that the international community will adopt sharp sanctions against Iran… We won't reveal everything but this is a very broad operation," he told the Knesset plenum. As to the effectiveness of sanctions and when they may take effect, Netanyahu said, "Time will tell if [sanctions are] enough - to stop the Iranian nuclear program. I estimate that the decision pertaining to this, at least in the UN, will take effect in the beginning of the year." He then made special note of the month of February in the possible schedule for sanctions.
