Know Your History: Jerusalem, Right After The Six Day War (NY Times July 30, 1967)


series where I use history to debunk common misconceptions about the Middle East conflict.

The Six Day War ended on June 10th, 1967 and less than to months later, the New York Times wrote a piece about the changes Israel had begun implementing in Jerusalem, following its liberation.

As usual, it is stunning, eye-opening and provides somewhat of an antidote to those infected with anti-Israel bias passed on by the current mainstream media – including the present day New York Times!

Note in particular:

  • The numerous historical references to the Jews’ presence in Jerusalem and connection to the city
  • Israel’s quick efforts to integrate the new Arab population and treat them like citizens, not enemies – despite the Arab’s generally hostile attitudes

Note: I cannot provide a link to the full article since it is only available to those who have purchased a NY Times subscription. But I have provided screenshots below. As usual, click on the screenshots to enlarge.
