Over the past few years, Iran has made a major leap forward, in its nuclear R&D, in its production-capacity, and in its enrichment. 

Iran's nuclear weapon program is at a critical point.

All red lines have been crossed. 

Inspections — ignored.
All wishful-thinking — proven false. 

Iran is violating the IAEAs safeguard agreements — and it's getting away with it. 

They harass inspectors and sabotage their investigations — and they’re getting away with it. 

They enrich Uranium to the level of 60% which is one step short of weapons-grade material —and they’re getting away with it.

Evidence which clearly proves Iran's intentions for nuclear weapons in secret sites in Toorkooz-abad, Teheran & Marivan — is ignored.

Iran’s nuclear program has hit a watershed moment; and so has our tolerance. 

Words do not stop centrifuges from spinning.
There are those in the world who seem to view Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons as an inevitable reality, as a done deal — or they've just become tired of hearing about it. 

Israel doesn't have that privilege. We will not tire. 

We will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon.
