Photos of Six Day War

The Kotel at last

Putting tefillin on soldiers

Some great photos of the "Six Day War" of 1967 are on here. I like the ones of the Kotel in particular.

It is hard to believe that it is already 39 years since this war. At that time almost the entire world was on Israel's side - Israel was seen as the "David" fighting for it's life against the "Goliath" of the Arab nations. Even though Israel is still the same size - even if the population is now double what it was in 1967 - it is now seen as the aggressor. What a weird world we live in.

Thanks to YMR for the link.
