Brandishing a placard with a cartoon rendering of a bomb, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday exhorted members of the United Nations General Assembly to set a "red line" on Iran's suspected nuclear weapons program. Using his prop, Netanyahu explained that Iran has nearly completed two of the three stages required to produce a nuclear weapon. He warned that Iran could have enough enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon by next summer, which he said would not only threaten the existence of Israel, but the security of the entire world. Netanyahu has often clashed with the Obama administration over Iran, with the White House refusing to set red lines other than declaring that it would prevent Iran from getting the bomb.
