Dayan, Khomeini, "Collective Punishment" and Al Quds Day 2013

Israeli General Moshe Dayan was the one who "ordered the Israeli flag removed from the Dome of the Rock, and gave administrative control of the Temple Mount over to the Waqf, a Muslim council. Dayan believed that the Temple Mount was more important to Judaism as a historical rather than holy site." And yet the poster below (from Australia) portrays Dayan as one of those Zionist "racists" of the Ayatollah Khomeini's fevered imaginings, a fever which just happens to be the impetus behind his annual Trash Zion, er, sorry "Freedom" and "Justice" for Palestine Day. Here's what the old goat said when he declared the day back in 1979, hoping to get rid of the Jooooish usurpers and unite a fractured and fractious Muslim world via their loathing for a common enemy:
I invite Muslims all over the globe to consecrate the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as Al-Quds Day and to proclaim the international solidarity of Muslims in support of the legitimate rights of the Muslim people of Palestine. For many years, I have been notifying the Muslims of the danger posed by the usurper Israel which today has intensified its savage attacks against the Palestinian brothers and sisters, and which, in the south of Lebanon in particular, is continually bombing Palestinian homes in the hope of crushing the Palestinian struggle. I ask all the Muslims of the world and the Muslim governments to join together to sever the hand of this usurper and its supporters. I call on all the Muslims of the world to select as Al-Quds Day the last Friday in the holy month of Ramadan — which is itself a determining period and can also be the determiner of the Palestinian people’s fate — and through a ceremony demonstrating the solidarity of Muslims world-wide, announce their support for the legitimate rights of the Muslim people. I ask God Almighty for the victory of the Muslims over the infidels
Gee, who do you suppose sounds more guilty of calling for collective punishment--the guy who essentially gave away the Temple Mount, or the guy who wanted to "sever the hand of [the] usurper"?

Making concessions to extremists is never a good idea (a principle you would think someone like Moshe Dayan, who actually fought the Nazis during WWII, would have internalized).
