Today in Middle Eastern history: the Six-Day War begins (1967)

Today is the anniversary of the Six-Day War, Israel’s militarily decisive but politically confounding rapid defeat of armies in Egypt, Jordan, and Syria (Iraq and Lebanon were involved as well) that has done as much as any other single event to help shape the modern Middle East. Your perspective on how the war started will depend quite a bit on your perspective on the current Israel-Palestine situation, and as I really try to keep my own views on modern issues out of these historical posts it’s time to both sides the hell out of this.
