How Israel won the Six-Day War


Our president has been in Israel this week. Israel is a land of beauty and major historical and religious significance.  It is a small country with a large amount of political conflict.

In just a few days, Israel will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of its astounding (and some would say miraculous) victory in the Six-Day War, so I thought this would be a good time for us to review that short period of history. 

I barely remember the war in 1967. My political awareness had not been awakened, and I thought I had too much to do and no time to spend on current events.  So what I’m sharing with you today is not based on my personal knowledge. Instead I will be quoting extensively from the writers of Jewish and Israeli history.
