The Jerusalem Post reports that Iran has crossed the “red line” set by Israel for its nuclear activity, according to a statement by the former head of Israel's military intelligence.

"By the summer, Iran will be a month or two away from a decision about the bomb," the current director of the Institute for National Security Studies said at a conference in Tel Aviv. According to Yadlin, a decision will made after the Iranian presidential elections in June.

Yadlin also stated that Tehran already has enough 3.5 percent enriched uranium for six bombs and nearly enough 20 percent enriched uranium for one bomb.

"They have no problem reverting back what they allegedly turned to nuclear fuel. Within a week it could be turned into nuclear material for a bomb," he warned.

In a speech to the United Nations last September, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu laid out a “red line” for Iran in stating that its enrichment activities must stop before they produce enough 20 percent enriched uranium for a single bomb.

Member of the Knesset Tzachi Hanegbi said at the conference this week, “it’s now or never... the option of never does not exist.”
