In 1967, Gamal Abdul Nasser of Egypt ordered the United Nations Peacekeeping forces to leave Sinai and he sent in his military in attack formations to mass on Israel's border. He closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping including the vitally important flow of oil from Iran which was Israel's only supplier at the time. Nasser had forged an alliance with the dictataor of Syria to also mass troops at the Golan Heights and prepare for an invasion of Israel. He convinced Iraq to send a division to Jordan so Jordan and Iraq could attack from the East and Egypt from the south and Syrian from the Northeast. They repeated that they will throw the Jews into the sea. That is how they started the war in 1967. Israel wasn't stupid enough to wait for the actual first bullet. Go read a history book. Not one written by a warped historical incompetent from the Arab world who like Ahmedinijad will blame it on Israel starting the two world wars and likely the Crimean War too.
