During the Yom Kippur War (1973) Israel was pushed back from the territorial gains of 1967. Had Israel been compelled to negotiate a painful ceasefire at that point-in-time the price most likely would have been withdrawal to the 1967 borders. Instead the (arguably) anti-Semitic President Richard Milhous Nixon ordered US Army tanks in Western Europe as a part of NATO, to be air-lifted to Israel to make up for IDF losses. As a result the late General Sharon was able to counter-attack and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. The current map that Israel and her neighbors live with is all Nixon's doing.
