So, here is my reminder of the hopes that the 'setback' set back, in the form of cartoons published in Arab newspapers during the 1967 Six Day War:
Cannons of eight Arab states:
Lebanese daily Al-Jarida, May 31, 1967
Tank forces of the UAR,
Lebanese daily Al-Khayat,May 31, 1967
“The barricades in Tel Aviv.” Syrian army publication, Al-Jundi Al-Arabi,
June 6, 1967 (Day 2 of the Six-Day War)
“How to use the Star of David.” Iraqi dailyAl-Manar, June 8, 1967
* HonestReporting has published the following from The Reform Party of Syria:
"The Reform Party of Syria has learned today, from intelligence sources close to the Assad regime in Lebanon, that Syrians storming through the Golan Height next to the Quneitra crossing are Syrian farmers who have migrated in recent years from the drought-stricken northeast Syria to the south. Estimates put the number at 250,000 impoverished migrants.
"Information received cite the regime has paid hundreds of these farmers $1,000 each to show-up and $10,000 to their families should any of them succumb to Israeli fire. In Syria, an average salary is about $200 a month and to these impoverished farmers, such a one-time sum can keep them economically afloat for six months." Palestinians and their staunch supporters. Right. Read the rest here.
