Ms. [Yaël] Dayan, like her father [Moshe] in his latter years, has been a passionate speaker crusader for peace within Israel. Did her local presentation and Nashville Scene interview correctly portray her dad's total views on this subject? Maybe closely, but not necessarily totally. His quoted remark concerning the Golan Heights may have worked at one time, but there's no way those Heights being occupied now would be acceptable to Israel with Hamas running Syria. From there, even small mortars could view and shell a large portion of the population. For those that seek the destruction of Israel — and there are many in the U.S., and millions outside — rest assured that [Israel] will not be willing to be placed on an even military equivalency with any particular neighbor no matter the country or leader suggesting it. Nor should they.
