Some events are mere dots on a timeline, others profound benchmarks. The latter include the onset of the industrial revolution, the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the outbreak of WWI, the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, December 7, 1941, the Shoah-Israel’s establishment, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, the Shah’s Fall-Islamic clerical rise-1979, and 9/11. For Israel, Jewish and Middle Eastern History, the June 1967 war is a benchmark with legacies as well. Profound historical results emerged from the war, many of the consequences still unfinished. Using original sources let’s review how the war:
*solidified and refined Israel’s existence as the nation-state of the Jewish people
*changed the nature and conduct of the Israel’s encounters with Arab neighbors
*altered internal Israeli politics
*generated churning in Israel’s relationships with diaspora Jewry and the Great Powers
In what ways does the June 1967 war remain unfinished? Why so?
