Six Day War of 1967 - 3rd Arab Israeli War




"...but the Arabs still couldn't, and didn't, come to grips with the fact that Israel was not going to accommodate them by disappearing from the map."

Aftermath & Analysis


June 5, 2007 will mark forty years since the Six-Day War. As we approach that anniversary, we can expect Israel’s critics, enemies and alleged friends, to intensify their demands for Israel to relinquish and evacuate the “occupied territories”, and help establish a Palestinian Arab State in their place. That demand often comes with a promise of recognition and peace with Israel in exchange for a complete withdrawal. A constant drumbeat of voices, including the Jewish left and some in the U.S. administration, insist that it is the ‘Israeli occupation’ that is at the heart of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Critics claim that continued ‘occupation’ is causing Palestinian anger and despair which fuels their violence because they have no other option to reclaiming their ‘occupied’ lands.
