In 1946/7, the United Nations created the State of Israel in the Middle East. It was placed in a region called Palestine and Great Britain had the
mandate to govern it, until it would be granted independence, in 1948.
In 1948, the Arab League [who had avowed the destruction of Israel] invaded on all fronts. After much bloodshed and intensely bitter fighting - most
notably in Jerusalem, Gaza and Khan Yunis, the fledgling state of Israel won. Since then, every successive arab leader has publicly, or in private,
avowed the destruction to the State of Israel.
In 1963, the Arab League decided to introduce a new weapon in its war against Israel — the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). The PLO formally
came into being during a 1964 meeting of the first Palestinian Congress. Shortly thereafter, the group began to splinter into various factions.
Ultimately, the largest faction, Fatah, would come to dominate the organization, and its leader, Yasser Arafat, would become the PLO chairman and most
visible symbol. All the groups adhered to a set of principles laid out in the Palestine National Charter, which called for Israel's destruction.
Almost immediately, terrorist attacks on Israel intensified, as a prelude to preparing ground for an Arab invasion. Things started slowly but built in
momentum until, finally, the Arab forces were assembling not along, but cunningly behind, the borders with Israel. It appeared to Israeli Intelligence
that the Arabs would be in a position to invade their country at the earliest in April/May, but certainly, no later than August/September, when Iraqi
units were expected to link up with Syrian forces.
To prevent this perceived invasion in the latter months of 1967, the Israeli's launched a massive pre-emptive strike against the air forces of Egypt,
Syria, Jordan and Lebanon in the early hours of June 5th. By 1000 hours, the combined air forces of Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria were all but
destroyed. By mid-day of June 6th, Iraq's air force had also almost ceased to exist.
At the same time, armoured forces under the direct command of Moshe Dyan [Defence Minister] and commanded by Moshe Tal (Sinai), Ariel Sharron (Jordan
and Lebanon) and Moshe Bar-Kochba (Barak Brigade) [Golan area] captured vast areas of the Arab countries. In 6 short days, Israel had fought against
superior Arab forces and had resoundingly defeated them.
Then a couple of years later came Yom Kippor when Israel came close to loosing. No nuclear weapons were used to defend her state and whilst several
smaller scale campaigns (wars) have taken place since, most notably the Israeli invasion of and eventual withdrawal from Lebanon, we have not seen a
major conflict in the Middle East between Arab and Jew.
Why? Because the Arab League have consistently funded and supplied the PLO, Hammas, Black September, the lesser Peoples Front for the Liberation of
Palestine and all the other lunatics fringe groupd like Hezbollah.
This is how the Arabs now wage war against Israel. They are not in a stong position militarily, to challenge and subdue a US backed Israel and neither
have they the will to wage an unrelenting full scale military campaign against the Jewish state.
Now, however, there is a glimmer of light in the tunnel. Iran has taken up the challenge where both Syria and Iraq have failed.
Should the Iranians begin to develope enriched uranium for possible weapons use, and I for one do not think that Israel will allow them to, then more
than ever, does Israel need her nuclear deterent.
