Tom Segev is simply denying history, repeately validated by dozens of great historians on his flawed interpretation of Jordan's role in attacking Israel on the 6th June 1967. Segev neither knows nor cares of the three weeks pre-history before the Jordanian attack and how Israel literally begged repeatly the current kings father not to attack Israel with the premassed forces on its border. When Segev make such serious historical flaws one can only but wonder how much else he has written lacks any historical or factual basis. Just reading the Jordanian and Syrian newspapers of May 1967 make the aggressor's intentions quite clear. How did Segev miss these 40 year old sources of the day?
