Perhaps the points Dagan makes are accurate but if Iran bypasses the supervision of IAEA and towards accumulating stash of nuclear technology, then that's a future concern for the region. If a nation with despotic rule has it, then there's no guarantee that they would not use it. Today Iran is not a pro-peaceful and socioeconomically progressive nation, but a somewhat isolated pariah state. This is unfortunate, despite its historical contribution to civilization. Nevertheless, what Dagan is probably contending is that efforts towards reaching a peace agreement between Israel and the PA is more of a priority at this time.
