Before the 1967 Six Day War, Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser said, “The armies of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon are poised on the borders of Israel ... to face the challenge, while standing behind us are the armies of Iraq, Algeria, Kuwait, Sudan and the whole Arab nation.
”Our basic objective will be the destruction of Israel.The Arab people want to fight.”
Israel preempted on June 5 1967 and stunned the entire world by defeating its aggressors in just six days.
Egypt lost control of the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula.
Jordan lost control of Judea and Samaria and East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
Syria lost control of the Golan Heights.
After Israel’s victory in the 1967 Six Day War, Arab leaders met in Sudan, in Khartoum and declared the famous three nos.
No peace with Israel
No recognition of Israel
No negotiations with Israel.
On Shabbat, October 6th 1973, Egypt and Syria launched a coordinated surprise attack on Israel, with the military support of other Arab armies, on Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar, when most Israelis were fasting and many were in the synagogue.
This was a very difficult war for Israel with many casualties; nevertheless, Israel emerged victorious from the Yom Kippur War.
Egypt signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979 and Israel withdrew from the Sinai Peninsula.
Jordan signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1994 which was closely related to the failed Oslo Accords.
The Palestinians still do not recognise Israel’s right to exist.
The goal of the Palestinians, which is the destruction of Israel, is expressed in the Hamas and Palestinian Authority charters, in their educational system and in their horrific actions of terror against Israel.
We must put a stop to this.
Don’t ask for a cease fire.
Don’t support Hamas.
Accept That Israel Is Here To Stay
Support those who love life.
