There are many sources describing the Daniel 8 prophecy, each one has its own explanation and also depending if your Jew or Christian I suppose...yawn.
As I said, the existence of many explanations has no bearing on what the most plausible one is. The one I mentioned in the OP includes the river as part of the battle the Greeks decisively defeated the persians, and 2300 years after that leads you to the late spring of 1967.
If the Lord wanted to impress us with prophecies then I feel like he could do significantly better than this.

There was no 'year 0'.
Indeed, so in order for the prophecy to be accurate, one apparently has to add an non-existing year.
Daniel 8 has a prophecy that the Jews will be exonerated 2300 years after the time Alexander the Great defeats the persians by the river.
