ISRAEL HAS had its exceptional heroes. Meir Har-Zion, a member of the Israel Defense Forces’ famous commando force, Unit 101, formed by Ariel Sharon, is said to be one of the country’s greatest fighters; Ehud Barak is the country’s most decorated soldier; and Moshe Dayan is considered, abroad in particular, the most renowned Israeli military man.
