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.

    No mention that yesterday marked the 50th. anniversary of the false-flag attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 American sailors

  • The odds were against Israel yet that shoe horn of a country managed to survive.

      And the victory of the Six Day War is still making antisemites everywhere salty to this day…

      • It just never occurred to them to have real tacticians or anything.

    Back in 1967 I was still living in the U.S., ans I remember that the dominant liberal media supported the Israeli victory. But that was way back then.

      I was in France at the time and the reporting by the media was the complete opposite. I have no idea what it was like in Canada, but I suspect it was closer to the French media’s reporting.
