Netanyahu: Israel to keep security control over West Bank

US think tank: Israel had plan to use atomic bomb in 1967

Those six days 50 years ago this week have now touched half a century of Middle East history.

What if Israel had lost the Six-Day War?

The Norwegian Refugee Council today warned that unless the ongoing injustices against Palestinian civilians are addressed there can be no meaningful peace process. And few things are as valuable to Israel today as the opportunity to shift the blame for its continued denial of Palestinian rights. Nevertheless, the global legal and moral endorsement of Jewish rights in the land has always been rejected by the majority of Palestinian Arab leadership.

He also recalled that in 1947, the world recognized the two-state solution and called for the emergence of "independent Arab and Jewish states" on the basis of UN General Assembly Resolution 181.

Unfortunately, most news organizations fail to report on the entire background of the Six-Day War.

"I am here to demonstrate against the occupation, and the oppression of the Palestinian people, and to call on all the world to recognize now the independent Palestinian state". After fierce fighting, a ceasefire agreement was reached. In 1967, at the end of the war, Israel immediately annexed east Jerusalem. There is a glimmer of hope that President Trump, in his desperation for a foreign policy success, might try and force Israel to end the Occupation and make a deal that respects the rights of all.

The so-called "occupied territories" are, in fact, territories in dispute, not illegally occupied, and after failed peace efforts in 1967, Israel has tried to forge peace with its Arab neighbors on multiple occasions. Every synagogue was bombed and desecrated. What land was he seeking to "liberate" in 1964 other than the State of Israel?

A year later, the state of Israel was established, but almost seven decades on, Palestinians are still struggling for independence.

During the period prior to the attack against Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser perpetrated by Israel on June 5, 1967, Nasser was portrayed as an evil and risky anti-Israel demagogue who wanted to bring Israel to its knees.

Israel was alone, surrounded by enemies baying for Jewish blood.

"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised on Tuesday to continue building settlements in the West Bank and called himself the first prime minister in decades, who will promote building a new Jewish settlement there". Israel tore down the concrete wall that had split the city for 19 years and transformed Jerusalem into a city serving all its diverse residents - Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. Arab governments that had gone to war to prevent Israel's creation still expected to someday erase it from the map.

Let's remind Israel's detractors that it was a war of self-defense.

Among the many areas of disagreement between Jewish and Arab Israelis were settlements, and whether they were an obstacle to peace.

By relinquishing the Sinai peninsula (23,166 square miles) and Gaza (140.0 square miles) Israel has returned 92% of all lands it captured in 1967 and fully met all of her Resolution 242 obligations AND gave all the Arabs, including those in Judea and Samaria, a life that is better and more free than in any other Arab nation.
