Deputy PM: Time is now for action on Iran nukes

Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor said "the time is now" for Israel and the world to act to thwart Iran's nuclear ambitions, after world powers on Friday accepted Iran's response to their offer of talks on the issue.

Meridor, who is also Minister of Intelligence and Atomic Energy, played down speculation that Israel was on the verge of launching a military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities.

"The trend is clear, and if you want to be an owner of nuclear weapons or have the capability of being a nuclear power it changes the balance of power," he told Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, not mentioned in that statement, is the fact that Israel does have nuclear weapons, and refuses to be a signatory to the NPT.
