The former chief of staff to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday an Israeli strike against Iran's nuclear facilities is "imminent."
Naftali Bennett appeared on Fox News' "Huckabee" and painted a dire picture of a world with a nuclear Iran, saying Israel will not hesitate to take action if necessary — and that time is of the essence.
"We're at the very last moment. This is going to be the first time in history that a maniacal, radical Islamic regime will acquire a nuclear weapon," he said. "The day after they have a bomb will be a different day for the entire world.
Calling Iran "an octopus of terror," Bennett told host Mike Huckabee in no uncertain terms: "We have to stop them, and yes, it is imminent."
