PM: New Iranian centrifuges will speed arrival at red line

By installing new, faster centrifuges, Iran is shortening by one-third the time it will take to produce “one nuclear bomb’s worth of highly enriched uranium,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday.
Netanyahu, speaking to to the annual meeting in Jerusalem of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, said the Iranians had not crossed the red line he outlined during his speech to the UN in September, but that the faster centrifuges means it will take them less time to do so.
In September he said the Iranians could reach that point by the spring or the summer.
“I drew a line at the UN, they haven’t crossed that line, but what they are doing is shortening the time it will take them to cross that line,” he said. “This has to be stopped for the interest of peace and security for the entire world.”
