Zitat des Tages von Moshe Dayan:
I feel I've lived so long, and went through so much, that all I want is calm and rest.
Who needs such a long intestine, anyway?
Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist.
Our American friends offer us money, arms, and advice. We take the money, we take the arms, and we decline the advice.
I have only one eye. Do you want me to look at the road or the at the speedometer.
It was in our power to cause the Arab governments to renounce the policy of strength toward Israel by turning it into a demonstration of weakness.
There is not one single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.
After all, we are not children. It's time we planned our life.
If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.
We could not guard every water pipeline from being blown up and every tree from being uprooted. We could not prevent every murder of a worker in an orchard or a family in their beds.
Israel cannot afford to stand against the entire world and be denounced as the aggressor.
It was in our power to set high price for our blood, a price too high for the Arab community, the Arab army, or the Arab governments to think it worth paying.
We are a small nation, but strong.
It's a democracy and if I am outvoted, I have to accept the majority decisions.
Most important, don't do anything you don't want.
The Old City of Jerusalem is in our hands.
Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.
The Jews have opened fire, and they are unready to begin a war.
I know that plans and reality may be two different things, but I think my demands on life are minimal.
If I had to resign every time the Cabinet disagrees with me, I could not last as a Defense Minister one week.
There is no more Palestine. Finished.
I don't think we should be a model family living in a model home.
To aim and hit, you need one eye only, and one good finger.
We should demand his blood not from the Arabs of Gaza but from ourselves. Let us make our reckoning today.
It isn't a secret that my heart is damaged. All the treatments and medications haven't been effective.
The method of collective punishment so far has proved effective.
I have the strength to endure it all.
I have traveled a long road from the battlefield to the peace table.
