Moshe DayanMmmm, imagine having that sweaty piece of black leather all to yourself. Yes indeed, the trademark eyepatch of Moshe Dayan is on EBay and the price is set at $75,000.

Moti Sander, a partner at Pasarel, said that his company specializes in Judaica and jewelry, and that he had received Dayan’s eye patch from the minister’s personal bodyguard, who said that he had gotten it, together with a Smith & Wesson 38 revolver, minutes after the famed warrior died in 1981.

Though Dayan’s pistol appears on the eBay site, this is not for sale as the Web site forbids the trading of any arms. It is, however, for sale through Pasarel.

I don’t see why they’re bothering. Why not open a museum with Dayan memorabilia, and charge people $30 each for a photo of them wearing the eyepatch. With 2 million tourists visiting Israel per year, you have to think that you could make far more than $75,000 by year 2 if just 1% take up this offer.

And why stop there? For another $30, you could have people buy a photo of themselves in his old dirty underwear.

  • If I had all the money in the world and could afford to wipe my nose with 3 million dollar bonds, I’d probably buy it.

    Although 75 grand going to a hunger charity or cancer research wouldn’t hurt either.

  • Cynic: A person who knows the price of of everything and the value of none.
    D your vision is narrowing, stretch it!

  • Stretch it to what? Should he also scour the net and buy amputees’ wooden legs, celebrity air, and old Civil War Relics? A piece of Dayan, or a piece that covered dayan is cool, but good god, 75 Gs for a strip of leather? And it doesn’t even come with a gun?

    In a few years that is gonna be worth millions. Billions. Notice that when I say few, i mean, like 300 years.

  • Thirty eight years ago, Moshe Dayan gave up the newly conquered temple mount and said it wasn’t ‘ours’. Ever since, we’ve been wandering in the desert waiting to enter the promised land. Or maybe, the spies/meraglim incident is only being repeated now with the literally ‘selling’ of Gush Katif, which means we might have another 38 years to go.

  • Josh, on this point you and I are in complete agreement. It was a mistake to allow the Waqf to continue to run the Haram Al Sharif.
