Biography of Moshe Dayan

Commentary by Dr. Gerhard Falk



It had always been common knowledge that Jews canít fight and will bow before their enemies but will not defend themselves. This convenient belief allowed the huge majority of Christians and Muslims to kill and rob the small Jewish minority.

It was not until the Jews of Israel finally gained weapons and organization that they could show the world the opposite. No man was more responsible for this inversion than Moshe Dayan, who became the very epitome of the self-confident fighting Jew. Dayan was the representative of everything that the Jews of Israel have achieved by defending themselves against the killer Arabs around them.

Dayan was born in Degania, Israel. At age 15 he joined the Haganah (Force), the Jewish self-defense force, and also served in the special brigade organized by the British general Wingate to deal with Arab terrorists. In the course of the fighting, Dayan lost an eye in Syria when a sniper hit his binoculars.

In 1948, Dayan participated in the War of Independence. Demonstrating his outstanding courage and leadership, he was promoted to chief of staff of the Israeli army in 1953. He became known worldwide for establishing the Israel Defense Forceís offensive approach.

In 1958, Dayan became a member of Israelís parliament and later minister of agriculture. He continued in that role until 1967, when Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq simultaneously attacked Israel from all sides in the hope of murdering the entire Jewish population and enriching themselves Nazi style on the money, the land, the houses, and all possessions of the Jews they hoped to kill. Evidently the Arabs believed then that Jews were still the patsies they had been in Europe, where the Arab god

Hitler and his millions of European Christian followers had made money by slaughtering Jews. This time the killers and all the world learned a lesson. Dayan had been appointed defense minister as soon as the Egyptians closed the Straits of Tiran and announced they would murder the whole Jewish population of Israel. American newspapers and other media, as well as most churches, were already drooling with enjoyment at the prospect of seeing another 4 million Jews slaughtered. However, it ended otherwise. In six days, from June 5 to June 10, the Israeli army literally wiped out the Egyptians, the Jordanians, the Syrians, the Lebanese, and all others heavily armed by the Russian communist empire. It was to the credit of Moshe Dayan to have led the victorious, vastly outnumbered Jewish defense forces to victory over Hitlerís successors.

In 1973, the Arab terrorists attempted once more to slaughter all Jews by attacking on Yom Kippur, hoping that the Israeli army would not fight on that holy day. Once more the terrorists lost.

To this day, in 2017, the Arab immigrants from lands surrounding Israel label themselves Philistines and scream for Jewish blood. Yet their cause is lost, because men like Moshe Dayan taught them that if they want to make money theyíll have to go to work instead of seeking to rob dead Jews. The day of Jewish acquiescence to any brutality is over. Israel has shown that Jews will indeed defend themselves and that the Arab murderers have to kill each other, as they usually do in the absence of Jewish victims.

Shalom uívracha.
