What has been magically lost - and what led to Golda Meier's rapid demise in politics - is that Meier knew there was an imminent Arab attack. She let it play out to prove to the world that Israel is not an aggressor. Result? Israel was blasted in the UN and the country lost more than 2,600 soldiers - something she also hid from the public during the War. Henry Kissinger was withholding weapons from Israel to force concessions relative to Arab interests ... read: oil! He overplayed his hand and Israel was nearing collapse. Meier pleaded with Kissinger to release weapons shipments. But the topper was Israel threatened to shoot down Russian planes and bomb Russian ships coming into Syria. If you are going to die anyway, go out fighting - with the blood of King David coursing through your veins. Kissinger capitulated and F4 phantoms, A4 Skyhawks and material came pouring into Israel.
