BJ: "The months before the full blown Six Day war were a prelude to the actual war." Annnnnd.....now we are back to the very start again, after BEN has just retreated from his previous idiocy. The six months BEFORE the war was a PRELUDE to the six day war? Well, duh!, a meaningless phrase, and a masterly statement of the obvious. So back to square one; the months before were a PRELUDE to the six day war. So who STARTED that war, BEN? ISRAEL started that war, and started it with a sneak attack from the air and an armored offensive in the Sinai. Coz that's the rub, BEN; if Israel HADN'T started the six day war then that PRELUDE could have continued, well, indefinitely i.e. without a war.
