Six Day War, 40 years on

This week marks the 40th anniversary of the Six Day War, which as much as any single event created the Middle East situation we now live with.

There are many retrospectives around the Web, but I've decided to link to one at Le Monde Diplomatique (in English) to give a perspective that may not be familiar to North American readers. The link is to just one of several articles in a feature called Forty Years of Conflict in the Middle East; related articles can be seen listed on the left.

These articles bring back a time when France was Israel's most important international supporter.
