Six Day War of 1967 - 3rd Arab Israeli War




"Every one of the hundred million Arabs has been living ... to see the day Israel is liquidated"

Cairo Radio’s Voice of the Arabs broadcast,
May 18th 1967.

Personal recollections from those within Israel



" The Six-Day War began suddenly and ended quickly. What appeared at first to be no more than bluster and verbal provocation turned almost overnight into a threat to our existence. Ten days of tension, uncertainty and apprehension were followed by a war which none of us wanted, and a victory far greater than expected"
