    Agreed. The preemptive attack in 1967 was Israel's last resort, not it's first. It is most curious that there are now two sides which totally misrepresent the situation - which was FAR from clear in 1967. Neither side WANTED a war in 1967. Not Egypt, Syria, OR Israel. It was an accidental war caused by Soviet disinformation and the failure of the USA to provide the information to Israel which would have exposed the Egyptian and Syrian deployments as strictly defensive in nature. Israel and the Arabs were both pawns in a super-power side-show. No one, least of all Israel, wanted a war in 1967. Levi Eshkol anguished before deciding the only course he had open was to preempt an attack Egypt and Syria had no intention of making. The alternative was a debilitating mobilization Israel could not afford to maintain indefinitely. Mistakes were made, and men died.
