Nuclear Iran 1,000 times worse than IS: Netanyahu

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends a cabinet meeting at his office in Jerusalem, May 26, 2015Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Tuesday that a nuclear-armed Iran would be "a thousand times more dangerous and more destructive" than the Islamic State group, his office said. "As horrific as ISIS is, once Iran, the preeminent terrorist state of our time, acquires nuclear weapons, it will be a hundred times more dangerous, a thousand times more dangerous and more destructive than ISIS," Netanyahu said, referring to IS. "As we are meeting, the P5+1 talks are reconvening, and I'm afraid they're rushing to what I consider is a very bad deal," Netanyahu told US Senator Bill Cassidy, in remarks relayed by the Israeli premier's office.
