Israel wants guaranteed funding for missile defense projects, while U.S. wants to phase out authorization for Israel to buy Israeli-made weapons and supplies with American security aid.23:11 03.05.16 | 0 comments
Dear Indrajaya, Your former view of history was correct. All of the independently confirmed sources indicate that the Arabs (particulalry Egypt, in this case) _did_ instigate the 1967 war, by blockading the Straits of Tiran, massing soldiers on Israel's borders, repeatedly threatening publicly to destroy Israel and "drive the Jews into the Sea" and telling the UN peacekeepers in the region at the time to leave. There is a wealth of very well documented material on this topic, by Michael Oren and others who have presented material from both Israeli and Arab sources. Even Akiva Eldar's belated revisionism does not contradict the historical information provided by Oren and others. When the Arabs give up on their dream of destroying Israel and enjoy what she can offer in friendship, then there will be peace.
