(CNN) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has key billing in a new ad running in Florida.
The spot, produced by the independent group Secure America Now, shows Netanyahu voicing his concern about what he and other world leaders suspect is a nuclear program being pursued by Iran.
Washington (CNN) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview aired Sunday that the upcoming U.S. presidential election should not influence the debate over how and when to stop Iran's nuclear ambitions, a contentious issue that remains a sticking point between the Israeli leader and President Barack Obama.
Yet in recent interviews, Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney have stated largely similar stances on the issue of setting clear "red line" boundaries for Iran as it advances its nuclear program, which leaders in Tehran maintain is for peaceful purposes.
(CNN) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday that the United States must establish a clear "red line" that Tehran cannot cross with its nuclear program, if it wants to avoid war.
"I think the issue is how to prevent Iran from completing its nuclear weapons program. They're moving very rapidly to completing the enrichment of the uranium that they need to produce a nuclear bomb. In six months or so, they will be 90 percent of the way there," Netanyahu said on CNN's "State of the Union."FULL STORY
