EXCLUSIVE: Israel's president warns "time is out" for Iran

Editor's note: Watch Elise Labott's interview with Shimon Peres at 1pET on CNN's Newsroom with Suzanne Malveaux

By Elise Labott, reporting from Jerusalem

Time is running out for a diplomatic solution to Western concerns about Iran's nuclear program, Israeli President Shimon Peres said Monday in an interview with CNN.

He said Iran continues to flout the United Nations and world leaders by pushing forward with work on its nuclear program - including, he said, work on a nuclear weapon. But he said Iranian leaders would be making a costly mistake in believing the threat of military action is an empty one.

"You cannot provoke the world, assuming the world is made of fools only," Peres said.

His comments come at the start of talks in Moscow between Iran and the group of nations that have taken the lead on the issue: the United States, France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany. Peres is not attending the meetings.

The International Atomic Energy Agency and Western leaders have expressed concern about Iran's nuclear effort, including its uranium enrichment program and possible work toward a nuclear weapon. Iranian leaders have repeatedly said the work is purely peaceful.

Previous rounds of talks have failed to result in any agreement.

Peres said Western leaders should remain united on the issue and called for the United States to assume the role of "elder statesman" in reaching a solution. He endorsed the strategy of exhausting non-military options, including sanctions, against Iran.

But he said there must be a credible threat of a military strike for those options to be successful.

"If the Iranians will understand seriously that this is an option, maybe we shall not need it," he said. "If they think this is a bluff, then it may lead to a war."

"For that reason, the warning must be credible, the sanctions must be credible," he said. "So let's first of all use the non-military means, indicating to the Iranians, 'Gentlemen, better you agree with a non-military confrontation than look for other options.' "

Iran has pressed for the removal of sanctions, including a ban on oil exports that appears to be exacting a serious toll on Iran's economy. U.S. and other officials have said sanctions must stand.

Here is the exchange:

Elise Labott: World powers are meeting with Iran in Moscow. Are you expecting anything from these talks or is it a waste of time? Is Iran playing for time?

Shimon Peres: I am not sure that something will happen there for two reasons. A) the Iranians think this is just a warning, That people are not serious enough. And the second is they believe can introduce a split in the coalition that President Obama has built. I don’t think it will happen because the danger is uniting, not the policy. Iran is a real danger

Labott: Do you think the military threat is credible enough?

Peres: If the Iranians will understand seriously that this is an option, maybe we shall not need it. If they think this is a bluff, then it may lead to a war . For that reason, the warning must must be credible, the sanctions must be credible. So let’s first of all use the non-military means, indicating to the Iranians, "Gentlemen, better you agree with a non-military confrontation than look for other options."

Labott: How long do they have?

Peres: I think time is out because they continue to build the bomb. They continue to do things which are contrary to the UN provisions, to the atomic center of Geneva. They build, the provoke. The continue to enrage the Iranians. You cannot provoke the world assuming the world is made of fools only.

Labott: So time is out you are saying, this is it?

Peres: I think time is beginning to be out, yes.

      "In a 1763 essay, Voltaire supported the toleration of other religions and ethnicities: "It does not require great art, or magnificently trained eloquence, to prove that Christians should tolerate each other. I, however, am going further: I say that we should regard all men as our brothers. What? The Turk my brother? The Chinaman my brother? The Jew? The Siam? Yes, without doubt; are we not all children of the same father and creatures of the same God?"[38]

        Palestine was a region of southern Syria, and was never a nation or a nationality until the Brits invented it in 1918. For the next 30 years the Muslims attacked the non-Muslims there, until the Jews rebelled in 1948. The sectors of Palestine that did not become Israel were annexed by other Arab/Muslim countries and no Palestinian realized Palestine was missing.

    Israel exists because the Jews of Palestine rebelled against sharia/apartheid and the Nazi-collaborator government of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Mohammed Effendi Amin el-Husseini, who recruited Muslims for the Waffen-SS. They know what they are dealing-with when they look at the Ayatollahs of Iran. Propagandists for militant Islam may make whatever excuses they like, but no one believes such nonsense.

      Any war is bad. I think you are over estimating the 2 billion bit. Iran is not exactly loved by the Arab countries, who would gladly see it brought down to size.

      Israel has already bombed Iranian nuclear sites in the past. Iran responding by denying it (despite satellite images to the contrary) and having Hamas send a couple of into Israel (which didn't hurt anyone).

      Doesn't sound like Israel has much to fear judging by Iran's past actions.
      As for being surrounded, remember the six days war? Israeli forces defeated those of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq SIMULTANEOUSLY. In SIX DAYS. And at least three of those nations are currently in no shape to wage war of any kind.

    Israel says that Iran could have a working nuclear bomb by the end of 2012....we gee, how many different time frames have we heard over the last 2 years ?

    5 years...10 years...4 years..etc...etc

    According to the 'media' Iran's enrichment capability isnt anywhere NEAR weapons grade...So like usual, Israel is lying

    If you listen to what the 'media' tells ya, Iran has been openly funding and supporting Hamas, and they are going to develop a nuclear bomb so they can destroy Israel (with no provocation; mind you), which of course will also kill all the Palestinians (which Iran is supposed to be supporting), the nuclear fall-out will affect every other country in the region friendly to Iran, and the United States will be left with no other option but to knock the snot out of them......Please re-read this till the bell goes off in your head telling you how Unbelievably STUPID!!! that sounds

    Israel is a little short sighted when it comes to nuclear weapons. Most people do not know that Israel stole their nuclear technology from France and then lied to US and UN investigators. To add insult to injury they have flat out refused to join the Nuclear Non Proliferation treaty. The ONLY nuclear weapons possessing country (they have 400 weapons) to do so except North Korea (they are in good company). For them (Israel) to be the dictator of nuclear doctrine is like Russia trying to dictate the same to the US–absurd!

    Israel's first strike would have to be MASSIVE! They cannot win a war against Iran unless they finish them on day one. It's a simple lesson in geography. Iran's population is spread out over a very large area. Israel's population is consentrated in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. A few hundred missiles into that metro area will prove devastating.

      It is like Jews can act as much stupidly as they want and go and kill a million people and when people give them a reality check and lash out at them then it becomes "anti semitism" and holocaust is brought into the picture.

      Jew bash Muslims all the time calling them "terrorists" and kill thousands of them every month, but it is deemed "self defense"

      Jews convinced the US in 2002 that Iraq has "weapons of mass destructions" and got US to attack Iraq based on false propaganda. Israel is doing the same and waiting for its baby sitter to attack Israel.

    "Western leaders should remain united on the issue and called for the United States to assume the role of "elder statesman" in reaching a solution' . So since your pushing for war, I take this to mean that you want the U.S to do the fighting.

    Hardly any of you have any idea of which you speak. While Isreal could launch a surprise airstrike against Iran, they lack the resources to for a sustained air campaign (i.e. heavy bombers and inflight refueling if heavy bombers) In addition, Isreal could not commit large numbers of ground troops and heavy equipment such as tanks and artillery – How would they get them there? They would never be able to take and hold enough ground for an air lift, and they also would be unable to take and hold an Iranian port long enough to move sufficient military assests to Iran.
    Using conventional military forces, the only way a government or Regime can be stopped is by a full scale invasion
    and occupation, which Israel is in no position to do, which is why they are attempting to goad America into war with Iran. I hope President Obama has the spine to tell the Israelis HELL NO!

    The very reason that Israel can bluster and threaten a huge country like Iran is confirmation that Iran needs to get the bomb ASAP – because its enemies have them and use them to push them around.

Work for it, like the rest of us. Maybe THEN your lot will learn how to get along with others that share this PLANET! There is only one we live on. Learn to live in peace, like the rest of us. Stop invading the Arabs, and they will not bother you. But keep invading and taking their land, don't expect peace, and don't' expect the US to keep fighting your aggressive wars fro you.

        Well Jim I don't know what your definition of "unstable" is, but there is no country in recorded history that ever attacked another or started a war with another knowing it would bring about their own destruction so to claim to know Iran will be the first to do so is arbitrary nonsense. If Iran launched nuclear missiles at Israel Israel has nuclear subs which could counter attack. Secondly your rationale about in the nuclear world there is no waiting around to be attacked first because there would be nothing left after the first attack is not borne out by fact since during the cold war if either side TRULY believed this either could/would have attacked first and "win" the war. Same holds with India and Pakistan. The rationales in your post are just a bunch of imaginative nonsense.

G-d does not want a war to break out in the Middle East. The good people of Persia and the Holy Land should be able to live in peace in the coming years. I can imagine driving on a road from Jerusalem to Tehran by 2019. Israeli and Iranian tourists could visit each other's land in friendship by 2013. It would be wonderful if Iran; Saudi Arabia; Israel and the USA all played off in Group D of the 2022 Qatar World Cup. The real potential of the region must be allowed to bear fruit. The circuit breaker is for a reconvened NPT Conference to be held in Jerusalem at the start of 2013. (Jan. 28th is a good date BTW. The conference only needs to be four days. The long term program can be worked out and discussed beforehand. The peace deliberations at Wesphalia to end the Thirty Years War involved set piece large meetings and smaller gatherings combined with the lines of communication being opened.)

    May the spirit of wisdom rest on the shoulders of various leaders in the coming days. The talks in Moscow right now are of supreme importance.

        Which is how it works in Russia. Of course even if it wasn't the case, it'd still be cheaper to get it from an established infrastructure. There's a huge start-up cost with building refineries, doing R&D, and not to mention the prospecting and extracting of uranium from the ground. But... there's a biiiiiiiiiiiiiig difference between the 3% enrichment needed for even military nuclear power reactors, and the 98% enrichment needed for a nuclear device. So obviously they wouldn't just buy it from an 'ally.'

    Just a brief note to Israel haters: Nothing I say will change your opinion. But there are other people reading this who have swallowed Palestinian propoganda whole. The REAL Palestinian State is Jordan. Jews actually purchased most of the land they "now occupy" from settlers before WWII. That said, SOME Arab land was conscripted by Israel after their wars, mostly in 1973.

    That territorial argument should be managed by courts for Arabs who can prove their land was stolen. For some, that would mean financial reparations and even repatriation of their land. That does NOT require that Israel be destroyed in the process.

    Israel is a leader in cancer and other research, and contributes much to the World as it presently exists. Jews lived in the ME for over 3000 years, at least 1,000 years prior to any tribes that called themselves Muslims.

    They have a right and obligation to defend themselves. They cannot and should not depend on America, or American troops to protect them. They never have and never will.

    Stern is a idiot too. Israel had nothing to do with making America believe Iraq had WMD's. Your retarded President Bush and it's administration fooled you with a false flag attack 0n 9/11. many Americans gobbled that up and believed it. and All those who support Iran are clearly insane. I mean Clearly. I have followed all of this for a long time. Israel is not saint, neither is America. But Iran is completely nuts, racists, and powered by a theocracy of hate. there is NO QUESTION.

    The reason why Israel keeps saber rattling and shallow chanting because US is indifferent. Israel has always relied on its baby sitter to do all of the attack, military aid, financial aid.

    Israel brainwashed the US into believing Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and attacking Iraq while nearly bankrupting itself and now Israel is doing the same about Iran.

    ISrael will not use force against Iran unless as a last resort in case there will be no other way to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. If it happens, however, Israel will use enough force to assure that Iran will not be willing or able to launch a counterattack. Israel is not suicidal.

    A large scale (possibly nuclear) war in the Middle East means catastrophe to the Western civilization as we know it and THIS is the reason the US and the rest of the world will not let Iran to cross the line.

        Great India – you better do some research on your Red Flag 2008 "win". Actually when the Indian pilots fought over here they were severely defeated. Now when the US sent a regional squad to India to go up against the best India had to offer, India did have some success there. As expected though, the US has far superior pilots and technology so there really is no contest. As was stated in the Red Flag 2008 debriefing "they (India) will not want to go 1v1 against us anytime soon". Do the research yourself and quit living in your fantasy world. The US Air Force is the best in the world and there is no one to dispute that (the Navy would also be the biggest and the best).
