"Earlier Wednesday, Israel's ambassador to the United States Sallai Meridor said that Iran had "not yet crossed the threshold of being able to make nuclear weapons but might be no more than two years away."
"I really think they are on the verge of getting the genie out of the bottle and leaving our children with a nightmare," the Israeli envoy said at a news conference held at the private Council on Foreign Relations think tank.
Meridor said Iran was having trouble with the process of installing centrifuges to get them spinning and was trying to decide between quantity and quality in its program.
"2009 is the worst-case scenario to have the bomb," Meridor said, while renewing an Israeli vow to try to derail any nuclear weapons program.
"They are not there yet," he said."
The only thing that will stop the Iranian 'mullah-cracy' will be military action to cripple its nuclear chain of production.
