Fifty Years Ago, Israel Saved Western Civilization In The Middle East

If we think that region is chaotic now, imagine if there were not a state like Israel to mitigate the barbarism that repeatedly emanates from it.

This week marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Six Day War, when the state of Israel defeated three Arab armies determined to destroy the Jewish state in a second Holocaust. Notwithstanding all the might the Arabs could muster (supplied by the Soviet Union), Israel saved itself from annihilation and liberated the holy city of Jerusalem from Jordan’s oppressive rule of Judaism’s holiest sites.

But more than that, we should reflect on the fact that in preserving itself Israel also preserved Western Civilization in the Middle East.
