Netanyahu: Threat of Iran retaining nuclear breakout capability more dangerous than ISIS

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday said that world powers were about to sign a deal with Iran that would allow the Islamic Republic to retain "nuclear breakout" capability.
Speaking at a ground breaking ceremony for the Jerusalem roadway named after former prime minister Yitzhak Shamir, Netanyahu said that the deal would leave Tehran with "thousands of centrifuges with which Iran can create material for a nuclear bomb in a short amount of time."
The prime minister said that this would be "a threat to the world as a whole and to Israel in particular, much more serious than the threat posed by ISIS."
