Likud Chairman and Opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's leading candidate for prime minister, said Saturday that Iran "will not be armed with a nuclear weapon."
In an interview with Channel 2, Netanyahu said if elected prime minister his first mission will be to thwart the Iranian nuclear threat. He called Iran the greatest danger to Israel and to all humanity.
When asked if stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions included a military strike, he replied: "It includes everything that is necessary to make this statement come true."
Iran says it is seeking nuclear power for peaceful purposes and not for a weapons program.
