John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

The Six-Day-War: June 1967, When Underdog Israel Changed The World

The Six-Day-War: June 1967, When Underdog Israel Changed The World

 

With their dominating victory over three powerful Arab States in the Six-Day-War which began on June 5, 1967, Israel changed the world. It moved the Arab world from pan-Arab nationalism to “every country for its-self,” it established that Israel was no longer the underdog, and she was going to be around for a long time.

In the weeks leading up to the war, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping, preventing ships to reach the port of Eilat. If the vessels wanted to enter Israel from the east, they would have to circumnavigate the entire continent of Africa. Additionally, Egypt tossed the UN peacekeepers out of the Sinai and, along with Jordan and Syria began to mass troops and tanks on its border with Israel.

Finally, facing the threat of being over-run by the Arab armies, with an attack by the Egyptian Army imminent, on June 5th, the Israeli Air Force launched a preemptive strike on the Egyptian Air Force destroying their airplanes and guaranteeing Israeli control of the skies. Egypt had by far the largest and the most modern of all the Arab air forces, consisting of about 420 combat aircraft, all of them Soviet-built. A large number of those warplanes were the top-of-the-line MiG-21 capable of attaining Mach 2 speed.  That was the start of what is now called the Six-Day-War.

 Of particular concern to the Israelis were the 30 Tu-16 “Badger” medium bombers, capable of inflicting massive damage on Israeli military and civilian centers.

That has huge implications for the entire so-called Palestinian refugee situation. More like the boy who cried wolf, and those inclined to bash and/or boycott Israel today need to brush up on this aspect of history.

And now you have countries like Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the UAE allying themselves somewhat with Israel because they are getting tired of Hamas, the Palestinians and other political actors trying to destabilize the region...

Couple that with yesterday's pulling US out of the UN human rights panel and this could be YUUGE. Yuge, I tell ya!

 

Seriously. Israel in the middle of the Sunni/Shia divide? Wouldn't take long for that to turn south, resulting in Israel being surrounded by her enemies ...
