How 1967 defined the Middle East





To understand what is happening between Israel and the Palestinians now, you have to understand what happened in the Middle East war of 1967.

It took only six days for Israel to smash the armed forces of Egypt, Jordan and Syria but over the last 40 years, the legacy of the war has shaped the conflict into what it is today.

The war made 250,000 more Palestinians - and more than 100,000 Syrians - into refugees. No peace is possible in the Middle East without solving their problems.

Israel became an occupier.
