Dayan: Losing Faith is the Danger

President Shimon Peres was wrong in calling Israeli settlements a threat to Israel’s Jewish majority, Yesha (Judea and Samaria) council head Danny Dayan said Tuesday. “The only danger that faces Israel as a Jewish state today is the loss of faith in our historic right to our land,” he said.

“It’s bizarre that the president chose to bring up his prophecies of despair at the memorial for Binyamin Zev Herzl – the symbol of commitment to a vision in the face of all those who despaired,” he added.
