Iran's nuclear program is the worst threat that Israel has faced in its half-century history, Likud opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu said Thursday. "The future of the Jewish people and the Jewish state is in danger as has never been in the past half-century," Netanyahu said in an address to the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America in Jerusalem. He added that in order to prevent such an existential threat, which he compared to Nazi Germany, a global coalition of American, European and Arab nations was needed, noting that an array of political and economic sanctions against Iran "have and should be tried."
