The Most Important Victory Since 1967

Obama interferes in Israeli elections. Does he also use taxpayer money to pay for it?

54 years ago today as I write this, the Six Day War between Israel and her Arab neighbors was underway. In one of the most stunning military campaigns of the post-WW2 era, Israel confounded her adversaries and changed the course of history in the Middle East, establishing herself as a regional power to be reckoned with. While Israel has fought many engagements since that time, none have had the singular impact of that conflict…perhaps until now.

This June will mark the 50th anniversary of one of the most important military events of the 20th century, the “Six Day War” between Israel and her Arab neighbors of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan. The reverberations of this conflict remain with us today, and have commanded the attention of a disproportionate amount of the world’s political and diplomatic capital.
