Then, after the Israelis had taken control of this much larger part of the region and hundreds of thousands of civilians had been forced out, Israel was attacked by its neighbors, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. By the cease-fire on January 7, 1949, Israel had increased its original territory by 50%, taking western Galilee and part of Jerusalem.
? 1. What events led to and caused the 1967 war?? ? Josh Katz
In the Six-Day war in 1967 Israel attacked and took over the remaining part of Palestine with the intention of keeping it. All through the supposed "peace process" they have been illegally building on the occupied territories. Israel made a simultaneously air attack on Syrian, Jordanian and Egyptian air bases which lead to an increase of its territory by 200%. They took the Golan Heights, the West Bank of the Jordan river, Jerusalem?s Old city (one of the main places being discussed today!) and all of the Sinai and the east bank of the Suez Canal.
?2. How did the 1973 war begin?? ? Josh Katz
Israeli reluctance to even discuss the return of the occupied territories, lead to an Egyptian/Syrian attack on the Jewish Holy Day, Yom Kippur.
Hopefully this will put an end to the ?two-year war? between us. At least I am willing to extend a hand?
