Understanding Israel's 1967 Six-Day War

Ad Feedback

JERUSALEM, Israel -- In June 2007, the CBN News Jerusalem Bureau produced a series commemorating the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Six-Day War -- six days that dramatically changed the future of the Jewish state.

Forty-four years later, much of the world, including U.S. President Barack Obama, is pressuring Israel to return to the "indefensible borders" of the pre-1967 armistice lines.

CBN News hopes this series will provide a better understanding of what took place then and how it affects what the State of Israel is facing today.
