I'm not sure I understand the following statement: "Dayan, 56, does not have a typical settler background. He is from a secular family, an economist and a high-tech professional who joined the settler movement after growing up in Tel Aviv." Is that because the typical image is of a religious Zionist with a kippa sruga? What is the measure of who is or who isn't a settler? Is it anyone who lives beyond the 1949 armistice lines (Green Line)? If so, the demographic make-up of Jews all those living in parts of Jerusalem that Israel captured in 1967. Are they typical settlers? What about the residents of Hareidi urban communities such as Kiryat Sefer and Beitar Illit? Are they typical settlers? What about some of the non-observant Jews who reside in West Bank and Jordan Valley Jewish communities? Are they typical settlers? I'm not being sarcastic. Why would a news report - as opposed to an opinion piece - make such an empty statement.
