Revisionist History

I loved this post by Olah Chadasha. Excerpt:
So, here's the rub, and this is why I have no interest in rehashing the events of 40 years ago. The ONLY reason that any "historian" or pundit or journalist or politician, this includes Jews and Israelis, makes claims that it was bad that Israel won the Six day War is because they hate the fact that Israel exists. Period. They hate the fact that Israel won the Six Day War so decisively, because in the black holes of their hearts they really believe that the world would be a better place if Israel wasn't in it.

This leads to my theory of why the Six Day War is really such a turning point in the history of the Jews. It's is the event that led the world to be comfortable being Antisemitic again.

  1. Yes. It gave the world an excuse to be anti-Semitic without being seen or referred to as such.

    I would claim the anti-Americanism of the 21st Centruy is the DIRECT product of the anti-zionism of the 1960's and 1970's.
