Where are we going?

Red Line

—Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, said the only way to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons was by setting “a clear red line” to stop its atomic programme.
“At this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs and that’s by placing a clear red line on Iran’s nuclear weapons programme,” Netanyahu said in a speech at the UN General Assembly on Thursday.
“Red lines don’t lead to war; red lines prevent war.”
‘World’s future at stake’ Mark Regev, spokesperson for the Israeli prime minister’s office, told Al Jazeera: “Do we just let the clock tick itself out? No, we establish a clear red line. That’s the way to maintain the peace, and make war further distant.”

He added: “Obviously in the framework for today with an extremely radical regime in Tehran … It’s not about Israel, as our Arab neighbours share our concerns.”
During his speech, Netanyahu alleged Iran was already 70 per cent of the way through the process of enriching enough uranium to fuel a bomb, and must be prevented from reaching the 90 per cent level.

To illustrate his point, the Israeli leader used the world stage at the UN to present a cardboard diagram of a bomb with different levels on it, drawing a thick red line across it with a marker pen for dramatic effect.
“Faced with a clear red line Iran will back down,” he said, insisting that imposing an ultimatum on Tehran would not provoke war but help prevent it.
Marwan Bishara, Al Jazeera’s senior political analyst, said: “If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard that ‘time has run out on Iran’s nuclear programme’, I’d probably be a millionaire by now. We’ve heard this for the last 25 years, it’s just that it’s not very credible.”
Israel has warned that it could launch military action against Iran in order to prevent it reaching a certain nuclear threshold, and has urged the international community to force Tehran to abandon its atomic quest.

Iran denies it is building a nuclear weapon and has dismissed the Israeli threat.

Barack Obama, the US president, vowed in his address to the UN on Tuesday that he would prevent Iran from getting the bomb but his administration has repeatedly rejected imposing a red line on Tehran.
“At stake is the future of the world,” Netanyahu said. “Nothing could imperil our future more than an Iran armed with nuclear weapons.
He recounted a long list of “terrorist” attacks which he blamed to Iran, and warned that “given this record of Iranian aggression without nuclear weapons, just imagine this aggression with nuclear weapons.
“If their terror networks armed with atomic bombs, who among you would feel safe in the Middle East? Who would be safe in Europe? Who would be safe in America? Who would be safe anywhere?” he asked.
And he warned that the international community could not rely on its own arsenals to deter Iranian aggression, denouncing Iranian leaders as religious fanatics who would be quite prepared to sacrifice their own population.
