From: Israel, A Beachhead in the Middle East


Chapter Seven focuses on the ‘Naksa’ or defeat of the Arab states and the Palestinians at the hands of the Israeli army during the 1967 War, or the June War. The chapter explores the impact of this on Israeli diplomacy and relationships with its neighbours and its reverberations beyond the region of the Levant.
