Two years ago Obama ruled out the option of an Iranian nuclear programme. In truth, however, the programme hasn't been stopped but just slowed down. ... Since Iran rejects international monitoring of the military part of its nuclear programme while at the same time working intensively on a long-range missile, it's not surprising that Israel - and possibly also Saudi Arabia and other Sunni states in the region - are very nervous indeed. ... Certainly, Netanyahu's words of warning to Congress were somewhat infelicitous. However the dangers he sought to evoke are very real."
