Egypt threatened to throw is into the sea and cut off the waterways choking our economy. The good Arabs of Gaza were all in a heated frenzy to have an all out Jihad against the Jews and were totally supportive of Nasser. Syria was constantly bombarding the Galilee from the Golan Heights without provocation. Jews lived in shelters and Syrians did not. Hussein of Jordan was asked by Israel to stay out of the war and instead when he had the West bank (Judea/Samaria) and East Jerusalem he attacked. Perhaps he wanted West Jerusalem and West Tel Aviv. While I'm no fan of the weak Dayan he asked the question because Syria had constantly used the Golan to bomb the Israeli side. Taking the Golan has reduced that threat tremendously. Say a lie often enough Bernie and people believe it.
