    Don - 1967 was not a result of Palestinian trying to claim old land. It was Egypt kicking out the UN blocking the straits if Tiran and massing troops along the border in Sinai. These are facts. Syria also had amassed troops up on the Golan. Considering Israel's size and geography it would not be able to sustain an assault by both armies at one time. Lets not forget Jordan was also in the fray. After weeks of fruitless diplomacy Israel was left with no other choice. Egypt, Syria were playing with fire and got burned. These are historical facts. Once again the Palestinians were the victim of Arab agression. Unlike you I have talked with people firsthand who were living there at the time and fought in those wars. You may not like Israel but please dont rewrite history to serve your agenda.
