    On the 40th year after the 6 day war, Segev like the other "re-writers of history," would be wise to consider more intensely the events in 1967 immediately preceeding the war, during the war and post war. Theories of what could have been or should have been cannot change the reality of history and the terror that paralyzed us all at that time. The simple fact is, the Arabs were hell bent destroying the Jewish people in the land of Israel and we were fighting for our very survival. Nothing can change that reality. And a successful and definitive military solution means the capture of enemy territory. The reality is that Israel could not and should have done anything else in the face of the greater Arab mentality to destroy us. Despite the "nay sayers" amongst us and our opponents, the hostility of the surrounding Arabs has not diminished even until today. They still wait for that "opportune" moment to catch us "off guard" and finish the job that they could not in 1967
