Six Fateful Days that Shook the World


tank_column_somewhereJune 5, 2013 marks the 46th anniversary of the Six-Day War. On the morning of June 5, 1967 at 7:45 a.m., Israeli Mirage III, Super Mystère and Vautour fighter-bombers swooped over the Mediterranean toward airbases in Egypt and in less than three hours, destroyed the bulk of the Egyptian air force. A similar fate awaited the air forces of Jordan, Syria and Iraq.

In six glorious and decisive days, the Israel Defense Forces bested the might of the combined Arab nation and sent them scurrying with their tails between their legs. So overwhelming was Israel’s victory that the Arabs, shamed by their own ineptitude and cowardice, attempted to concoct a story claiming that Israel was assisted by U.S. and British offshore aircraft carriers. Israeli intelligence intercepted communications between Egypt’s Nasser and Jordan’s King Hussein whereby the two, almost comically, tried to coordinate their storylines. Naturally, once the Israelis published the scheming exchanges, the full thrust of Arab mendacity came to fore.

The Six-Day War was actually a continuation of the 1948 Israeli War of Independence. Israel decidedly won that war as well where the odds against her – 50 million versus 650,000 – were even more staggering than in 1967. Despite their overwhelming superiority in tanks, aircraft and artillery, the Arabs could not “save Palestine,” a phrase commonly employed by Arabs when talking to Western audiences in an effort to couch genocide (against Jews) in more palatable terms.

Yet the Arabs, inspired by a hateful and deviant strain of Islam could not accept the infidel – Jews no less – in their midst. And so despite agreeing to an armistice with the Jewish State, the Arabs kept the proverbial pot simmering, adjusting the flames of hate higher or lower depending on their respective domestic situations. For the Arab governments of Egypt, Syria, Iraq and the rest of the sorry lot, the fictitious and self-perpetuating Palestinian “refugee crisis” proved useful in deflecting attention away from their own corruption and venality. As for the Palestinians, their intransigence surpassed all and their maximalist attitude is best summed up by PLO chief Ahmed Shukairy’s pre-Six-Day War boast, “We shall destroy Israel and its inhabitants and as for the survivors – if there are any – the boats are ready to deport them.”

There is nothing that unites the Arab world more than Jew-baiting. The Arab world with all of its internecine strife and political back-stabbing periodically takes a breather to focus their spent energies on the hated “Zionist entity” AKA, the Jews. This was the case in 1967. Yemen was in the midst of a vicious civil war with Egypt sending troops and military aid to one reactionary side while the Saudis, for some reason or another, supported the side that Egypt wasn’t supporting. The Syrian Baathists were busy trying to overthrow the Hashemites of Jordan, while the Iraqis were engaged in their own brand of usual mischief making.

But suddenly, the Arab world turned its head toward Israel and realized that while the Nasserites, the Baathists, the Hashemites, the Royalists, the revolutionaries and counter-revolutionaries were killing each other off, the Israelis were busying themselves with building, creating and inventing. And so, on May 15, 1967 the Arabs, led by Egypt shifted gears to focus on those pesky Jews who had the temerity to create a thriving country in their ancestral land.

Most who are acquainted with military history are familiar with the provocative actions taken by the Arab nations in the three weeks leading up to the war – the massive Arab military deployments, the closure of an international waterway to Israeli shipping, Egypt’s expulsion of UN peacekeeping buffer troops from Sinai and the blood-curdling rhetoric that accompanied each successive Arab act of belligerency. The Arabs were hell-bent on going to war and finishing off what Hitler couldn’t and no act of diplomacy, capitulation or appeasement would have reversed their convoluted trajectory.

On June 5, 1967 Israel showed the world how a determined nation with just 2.5 million people could defeat in convincing fashion an aggressor forty-four times its size. For the Arabs, the Six-Day War is a sensitive issue, so sensitive in fact that they refuse to refer to it by that name, preferring instead to call it the June War, as if somehow that obfuscates the fact that they were defeated in a mere six days. However, for the civilized world, the Six-Day War will be remembered as a war where the few overcame the many and where civilization triumphed over those who still live in medieval backwardness.

    Good article but the following statement you made is false:

    > “Yet the Arabs, inspired by a hateful and deviant strain of Islam could not accept the infidel”

    There is nothing “deviant” about hadith Sahih Muslim 6985 which reads as follows:

    “Sahih Muslim Book 41. Turmoil And Portents Of The Last Hour

    Chapter : The Last Hour would not come until a
    person would pass by a grave and wish that he should have been the
    occupant of that grave because of this calamity.

    Abu Huraira
    reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last
    hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and
    the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a
    stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant
    of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree
    Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”

    So
    Mr Lieberman, it appears even you have been sucked in by the “deviant”
    nonsense bandied about. The commandment to commit genocide on Jews is a
    *core* doctrine of Islam. Don’t forget that. Fortunately for most of
    the World many Muslims understand Islam even worse than you do – so they
    don’t follow the commandment. Yet (Al Azhar University, the Salafis and
    Wahabbis are trying to bring it to their attention).

    Back on
    topic: all the wars the Israelis have fought have been stunning
    successes. Hezbollah and Hamas claim victory even when they suffer
    crushing defeats. They consider it victory not to lose all their men –
    more delusions by Islamists; but this is good for Israel, it prevents
    the terrorists from having the mindset to do a proper analysis and
    gettng any better. So it is good they keep claiming victory, it keeps
    them useless and prevents them getting any better in the following war
    (meanwhile, Israel just keeps getting stronger and stronger – it now
    manufacturers arms more advanced than the US!).

    Saudi war game no one can beat. Convert locals to Islam and use them as enemy of their own nation all converts should be declared as anti national and slave and soldiers of Saudis or get ready for death and destruction by local converts.

    “the Arabs, inspired by a hateful and deviant strain of Islam could not accept the infidel – Jews no less – in their midst.”

    Since when is this a “deviant” strain of Islam? The problem with Israel and not that Jews existed in the Arab “midst”, it’s that they existed as masters of their own house, not craven dhimmis as they had existed for the previous 1400 years.

    • ComingJudgement

      It’s not a deviant strain of Islam. Anyone who believes Islam is a religion of peace is a false convert to the religion of Islam. The ones who really follow what mohammad taught are the ones cutting the noses off their wives, blowing up things, torturing and killing infidels, and oppressing society.

  • Gee

    The more things change the more they stay the same.

    They tried again in 1973 when we whipped their asses again.

    Now they are in the middle of a bunch of civil wars they are still trying to draw us in.

  • Arty Cohn

    It is important to remember that after Egypt closed the Gulf of Eilat, captured Sharm al Sheik, and moved their armored battalions to the Sinai-Israel border (each a “cassus Belli”), that while the actual fighting of Egypt and Israel started on June 5,1967, the war between Jordan and Israel began on the following day. Assuming that Egypt was winning, Jordan trying to conquer more of Eretz Israel beyond what they had conquered in 1948 started shelling Israel. Israel asked them to desist, to stay out of the hostilities. But Jordan persisted with the shelling. Israel, in a defensive action, retaliated capturing the areas of Samaria, Judea, and eastern Jerusalem which had been occupied by Jordan since 1948. Anti-Israel propagandists, ignoring the cassus belli, claim that because Israel aircraft fired the first shots when they attacked the Egyptian air bases on June 5, it was starter of that war. But that has no application to Jordan, which clearly was the starter of its war with Israel. In 1994 Jordan and Israel signed a peace treaty that made the Jordan river as the de jure boundary between both states.

    • American Patriot

      Hello “Remember the Liberty” aka Mr. Schicklgruber. We know what your agenda is here so go back to playing with your Nazi memorabilia & stop wasting everyone’s time. The Liberty incident has been exhaustively investigated in the US (where no less than 10 investigations were conducted) and Israel and all the findings point to a friendly fire accident that occurred as a result of the fog of war. Mainstream, serious scholarship has found not a scintilla of evidence that the attack was purposeful and all agree that it was an unfortunate accident. But that makes no difference to you, eh Schicklgruber? You’ve already made up what’s left of your tiny little monkey mind. By the way, are you a 9-11 Trufer?Just in case anyone is interested, please see here http://www.thelibertyincident.com/ and here http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/liberty.html

      Israel apologized and paid reparations.

  • Texas Patriot

    The Six-Day model needs to be the consistent and unwavering Israeil-response to terror going forward. When attacked, counterattack the aggressor, annex the lands of the aggressor, and expel the aggressor from forfeited lands. Either the attacks will eventually stop, or Israel will eventually re-acquire the entirety of the Promised Land. As they say, just do it!

  • glennd1

    The Soviet’s lied to Egypt about Israeli forces (11-13 brigades according to the Soviets) massing in the Sinai. Egypt responded and then Israel attacked pre-emptively, wiping out Syria and Egypt’s air forces while largely on the ground due to the complete surprise achieved. This guaranteed Israel’s victory on the ground as well, due to the immense value of air superiority in any ground war.

    The real story is that the Soviets manipulated events to their advantage. And its a fact that elements of Israel (the Palmah for example) were eager to conquer more territory. What was “glorious” about this? That Israel conquered Jerusalem and other territories? I understand why Zionist Jews might think that is fantastic, but should I as a non-Jewish American findi it “glorious”?

    • objectivefactsmatter

      “The real story is that the Soviets manipulated events to their advantage.”

      A subplot is that the Soviets tried to manipulate events to their advantage.

      • glennd1

        No, dingbat, the Egyptians never move their troops and close the port if the Soviets don’t give them false intelligence. You will at least acknowledge that well known historical fact, yes? Or is this yet another sign of a lack of coherence in my mind?

        • alexa44

          Egyptian did move theri troops and sent the UN packing from the border. Nasser did close the Strait of Tiran , that is real history not the fantasy you are telling here. As for glorious I guess you would have to be an Israeli living here at that time. There was a real danger of Israel being wiped out as Nasser promised us every day by the Egyptian radio in Hebrew . A conutry that was 20km wide in the center could have been cut to 2. The danger was real , there were 10,000 grave being dug before the war. Fearing this would be the price will have to pay.Fearing for another holocaust . 3 arabs armies so much bigger than Israe and we still won and in 6 days. That is what was so glorious. You have the right to think what you chose . But at least don;t twist history.

          • glennd1

            Giggling. So, first things first, I was correct in what I said as you have shown. Second, I did not criticize Israel’s actions – in their shoes I might have acted in exactly the same way.

            But please, don’t tell me that the outcome of the conflict is something that I as an American who finds Zionism morally objectionable (and Islamism even more so) should see as “glorious” or “fantastic”.

            I didn’t twist history a bit. You neglected to confirm that Egypt moved those troops based on a false intelligence report from the Soviets that Israel had moved 11-13 brigades into the Sinai – which was false. But it is an interesting fact, yes? That the ‘tripwire’ for the conflict was false in and of itself. How could the battle that resulted be considered “glorious”? As well, the taking of land via conquest is universally considered immoral – but this is exactly what Israel did.

            Now don’t misunderstand me. Israel was playing for its interests, like other nations. But those interests are of no special moral standing that make me as a non-Jew American think I should support them.

            This site conflates being pro-Zionist with being anti-Islamist all the time and I’m sick to death of it.

          • alexa44

            If you read what I wrote you would have noticed I said that you have the right to think what you want.
            funny the Egyptian sat on the borders with Israel and they didn;t know who was coming inot Sanai? it seems you don;t know the area geography that well.
            You make it sound like the American occupying Japan was also immoral. What is the difference.
            Again who ask you to come here and read if you are sick of it.

          • glennd1

            I misstated that fact, accidentally. I’m quite familiar with the difference between the Syrian border and the Sinai, i caught it in the edit. This isn’t a school paper, but the fact is my point remains the same.

            As well, here’s link from the Jewish magazine, The Forward using Palmah(ch) the way I used it. It’s not strange or ignorant the way you are trying to paint it.

            YOu said about Palmah ” But it also refers to the militant political faction within Israel that has always wanted Palestine “from the river to the sea”
            If you read the article you would see that is nothing to do with it. But if you think I am wrong than do show me in the article .

          • glennd1

            I didn’t ask you if I had a right to my own thoughts, I already knew that, Alexa. My question is why an American who isn’t Jewish or concerned at all with Zionism (most Americans) should view this war as “glorious” or “fantastic”. Which you still have no answered.

            Can you tell me why I should care?

          • alexa44

            I don;t think you should care if you do;nt want to . YOu can view the 67 war in whatever way you want. The same way I can view american wars or acts of war in any way I want.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “Can you tell me why I should care?”

            Because it was a decisive and glorious victory for our form of government and our culture. We’re talking about Western representative constitutional democracy vs. the evil alliance of Soviet communism and jihad, with a dash of supposed Arab imperialism.

            Obviously I’m not including leftists here. So no, it naturally pisses you off. A lot.

            Some of your facts are not wrong. If that makes you giggle, well enjoy yourself. I don’t think however, that it helps your cause to reveal that to us.

            Carry on as you wish.

            There were cold war factors. You hardly gave us a comprehensive view. The jihadis were constant agitators and the Soviets messed with their heads a little. So what. The Soviets were not sovereign over any nation in the region. They goosed the maniacs in order perhaps to effect the timeline. It changes nothing. It’s a footnote. It’s as if you want to present “ignorant” jihadis as victims. In any way you can manage.

            You are so transparent and you think you score points here. Maybe by confusing people that fall asleep you do disrupt our teaching here, but that’s about it. I think the conversations we have do inspire lessons that lead towards the truth, it’s just that you’re not one of the lucky ones to be heading in that direction.

            “This site conflates being pro-Zionist with being anti-Islamist all the time and I’m sick to death of it.”

            Are you sick of gravity too? Islam is a cult founded on “anti-Zionism.” Most reasonable, rational, well informed people have no trouble at all following along.

        • Drakken

          To answer your question, yes it is glorious to see the muslims defeated in wars that they savages started, frankly speaking, I think Israel was way to nice to the savages, they should have marched into the capitols in a victory parade.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      “And its a fact that elements of Israel (the Palmah for example) were eager to conquer more territory. What was “glorious” about this?”

      Justly conquering enemies is a bad thing to leftists when it goes against their totalitarian agenda.

      “That Israel conquered Jerusalem and other territories? I understand why Zionist Jews might think that is fantastic, but should I as a non-Jewish American findi it “glorious”?”

      Rolling back Islamic imperialism is always a good thing to Westerners who aren’t suckered by leftist or Islamic totalitarians and or their propaganda.

      • glennd1

        “Justly conquering enemies” – but that is the source of our disagreement. I don’t think the Zionist cause was or is just. My point in my original comment that celebrating the 6 Day War as ‘glorious and fantastic’ seems to presume that all could see it that way. I thought it was a perfect point to bring up that while that may be so for Israel, why is it so for an American who isn’t Jewish?

        • objectivefactsmatter

          “I don’t think the Zionist cause was or is just.”

          That’s why it was a salient point to make. I’m not expecting you to agree.

          “My point in my original comment that celebrating the 6 Day War as ‘glorious and fantastic’ seems to presume that all could see it that way.”

          Obviously our enemies will disagree.

          “I thought it was a perfect point to bring up that while that may be so for Israel, why is it so for an American who isn’t Jewish?”

          Because (I know I’ve explained this before to you) it was a great victory for Western civilization against it’s most intransigent historical enemy (combined with it’s most dangerous modern enemy). Even when some Western governments were cooperating with our enemies!

          That’s a glorious thing for all free people. Some of those free people are too dense to understand this. That is one reason why we teach. Some minds will advance.

          If you find it so horrible to follow along, you might be more comfortable at stormfront or some place like that.

I have reasons for opposing our alliance with Israel and supporters of Zionism. But I don’t hate Jews, in fact have stated clearly many times that the only place we can really protect Jews is here, in our country. I would love to the U.S. offer asylum to Jews – and ban reduce immigration from Islamic countries to nothing or a trickle. I know the threat we face from Islam as well as anyone on this site.

          Yes. I can say that not based on this conversation alone but with previous conversations where you totally failed to account for evidence refuting your tunnel vision. You use history extremely selectively. Just like propagandists. If propagandists were coherent, they’d be something else.

          Are you a propagandist? I think you’re serious. That’s pretty strong evidence (all tolled) that you can’t process the history coherently.

          “Do you understand that you are acting just like the leftists when you do that?”

          Leftists project their own delusion and incoherence on to others. One of us is wrong. I might be insanely incoherent. Or it might be you.

          “That makes me crazy or mentally defective? Tell me, do all people who disagree with you on anything have brains that don’t “function coherently”?”

          I think you’re hyper-sensitive, that’s for sure. Is that a mental defect? I hope you aren’t “hurt” by my comments. Just trying to inspire you to strive for more coherence. Show you’re capable of that if you’re so concerned about your image.

          Calling legal immigration an invasion is a sign you might not be thinking coherently. Just one sign. Among many.

    • alexa44

      Element in Israel ? Palmah? when you tell a lie at least check your facts to make it a good lie. Palmah disbanded.with the creation of the IDF.
      Sanai was under Egypt rule before the war of 1967.
      So all your post is one big lie.

      • glennd1

        Egypt asked U.N. to remove peacekeepers in ’67 and put 100k troops in to Sinai, then closed a port to Israel – this is the casus belli Israel itself cites for attacking Syria and Egypt pre-emptively (reading any history book – Arab, Brit or Israeli on this topic – would make this clear). As for the Palmah, you are trying to play on ignorance here. Of course in one usage, it’s a term that refers to the troops that fought to establish the state of Israel before and during Israel’s war to establish it’s state. But it also refers to the militant political faction within Israel that has always wanted Palestine “from the river to the sea” and was fine with Israel taking it by force. The term was commonly used back then to describe such people.

        But hey, keep lecturing me like you know better. So, now that you have been corrected and shown to be basically kind of silly, what do you actually object to about my comments? That I don’t support Zionism? Okay, but my question was why should an American who isn’t Jewish see this as a “glorious” and “fantastic” victory?

        Listen, I get the nationalistic roots of Zionism. Jews wanted a state and they took one via force. Okay, fair enough, lots of countries have begun this way although not with the active collusion a newly formed union of nations supposedly dedicated to the creation of a post-colonial order, the U.N. But at the end of the day politics ain’t tiddlywinks.

        But there is nothing morally good about what the Zionists did, particularly given the expulsion of 650,000 Arab Muslims from their homes in ’48. As a historically sentient person, I don’t see anything morally admirable in the entire enterprise. Now, I don’t bash them, I figure if they can survive and thrive, so be it – I don’t have a dog in the fight. But I’m under no moral obligation to support the U.S. protecting the Zionist experiment from nations around it who object. Once they took what they wanted by force, they opened themselves up to having their homeland taken back by force. Fair game as far as I can see it.

        This site conflates anti-Islamism with support for Zionism all the time and I’m sick to death of it. Like I said above, Jews should be welcomed in the U.S., they are persecuted and are an admirable culture in many ways. They have a proved record of assimilating here well. I actually grew up on Long Island with a large cohort of Jews in my world. I in fact think they are a great asset to our country. I just don’t think any of that compels me to support their invasion and colonization Palestine, and then expulsion of indigent people’s from their homes.

        So, when I read articles that claim victories for Zionism as “glorious” and “fantastic” I see those as solely nationalistic sentiments appropriate for an Israeli, or maybe a Zionist Jew living elsewhere. But to me? It’s just two sides fighting it out for a worthless spit of useless land. I could care less who wins – both sides are drenched in blood, murder, torture, rape and injustice.

        But hey, I use facts to come to these kinds of decisions. That’s why I’m anti-Zionist and anti-Islamist – as anyone who stands for the U.S. should be.

          There was a war.There were millions of reguees as reulst of the ww2 war. I don;t see people really care.
          there were 850,000 jews expelled from arab coutnries.

          Here let me answer your question since you think that the savage muslims deserve to have all of Israel in order to appease your muslim friends. Israel is a western ally, the effing muslims savages are not allies in any sense of the word. If Israel goes, we are next so Israel must be defended from the muslim scourge period. The fact that you use feelings instead of facts really does show the rest of us the level of your idiocy. Whether you like it of not, war is coming, and when it does, make sure your on the right side of history.

          “Listen, I get the nationalistic roots of Zionism. Jews wanted a state and they took one via force.”

          You are such a liar. They build a state through negotiated deals where the legitimate sovereigns and legitimate property owners were compensated without coercion.

          The jihadis were attacking the whole time. Eventually, when the state was born, nearby jihadi regimes got involved.

          You characterize the defense of Israel as taking a nation by force.

          You are a true nut job. And the fact that you are aware of certain historical facts makes you also incoherent. You have enough information that should lead you to a different conclusion if you processed it coherently.

    “The Liberty incident has been exhaustively investigated in the US (where no less than 10 investigations were conducted) and Israel and all the findings point to a friendly fire accident that occurred as a result of the fog of war. ”

    There’s actually evidence that the US passed the data gathered from the Liberty along to the UK, who passed it along to Jordan. In other words, the US was helping Israel’s enemies and had many hours of warnings to back off. Israel had no choice, other than accept their demise.

    That was another example of Johnson micromanaging and f-ing up our foreign policy. It backfired and they had to come up with the most plausible explanation.

    Friendly fire sounds reasonable and in a sense that is what it was. But the rest of the story shows that Israel is right when they question how much they can trust certain US presidents.

    The saga of the State of Israel since 1948 is sounding more and more like a modern-day Exodus story. A few million Jews escape the Nazi extermination program and return to their ancient homeland in the middle east. In a few short generations they create an economic miracle in one of the most desolate and unproductive areas of the world. But instead of peace and harmony with their neighbors, they find themselves surrounded by 100 million followers of an ancient religion that calls for their complete destruction and elimination. Their original sponsors in the West being long gone and their new ones facing major troubles of their own, the Israelis find themselves virtually alone in the world. Their one chance is to stay strong economically, technologically, and militarily, and their best hope for doing that is developing the newly discovered oil and gas reserves using advanced 3D seismic and real-time data-mapping and horizontal drilling technologies now available in the West. Drill, Baby, Drill! Perhaps we will see a new generation of Israeli wildcatters. It’s a story not even Hollywood could imagine. ;-)

    The next time the arab muslims go to war with you Israel, march into their capitols and put the savages under your boot and to hell with so called world opinion. Do not stop for peace talks, go full bore until they are in full panic mode and fleeing before you.

    The savages will sooner or later draw you folks into a war, this time, quit being worried about so called world opinion and grind the muslim savages under your boots and give no quarter.
