    “Bit by bit Israel is turning into more of a burden than asset for the US,” Dagan said in his meeting with committee.

    The Mossad chief indicated as well that the US views the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a lower priority after determining that neither side is ready for an agreement.

    Dagan also surmised that the Iranian uranium fuel-swap deal brokered by Brazil and Turkey was designed to avert the sanctions proposal currently in front of the UN Security Council. Iran’s effort to avert sanctions was influenced by a lack of progress in the development of its centrifuge program the intelligence chief reported.

    The Iranians “pulled a rabbit out of their hat to split the international community at the last moment,” said Dagan.
