The Deceptions of the Six-Day War
- Did Israel provoke the Six-Day War?
(Dutch /w English subtitles)
Dutchman Jan Mühren, former UN observer stationed at the Israeli border, describes how he witnessed Israel provoked it's neighbors in the run-up to the Six-Day War. Mühren says Israel was not the small innocent country under existential threat from it's neighbors, as has been written in our history books. 'It was the exact opposite.' He describes an incident that Israel created on the Syrian border. More of these incidents would later result into full scale war. Israeli war hero Moshe Dayan said in a conversation with a journalist Rami Tal, which only got published after his death, 80% of incidents were provoked by Israel. Israeli historian Michael Oren confirms Jordan posed no threat and was not looking for war.
