I remember when Ruth Dayan, in the early or mid 70's set up a busniess for Arab women, doing beautifully embroidered dresses. She represented an Israel that no longer exists. She represented a country that still had vision and hope and believed in peace. No longer. Israel of today and those in power in government and those who have concocted the toxic mix of the crudist nationalism and the most fundamentalist religion have devlivered the country to the heights of Masada. The Israel of which Ruth Dayan speaks no longer exists.
