Shimon Peres threatened Iran. “Those who threaten to destroy are in danger of being destroyed,” the Israeli elder statesman and Cabinet minister told an Israeli television channel. Peres was referring to calls by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for Israel to be wiped off the map. Peres also told Reuters this week that Iran is playing games with the international community over its nuclear program, and that the credibility of the U.N. Security Council is on the line over this issue.
