Looking Back at the June 1967 War

Synopsis

This collection of essays by Israeli, Palestinian, and American scholars and activists examines the impact of the June 1967 War on Palestinian and Israeli society. Following the war, Israel became an occupying power, ruling more than one million Palestinians in territories it had captured. Using military strength, with the tacit agreement and support of the United States and other Western democracies, Israel exploited and oppressed the Palestinians, brutally suppressing their civil, human, and political rights. This book evaluates the injustices done to the Palestinians and examines the sources and manifestations of these injustices in Israeli and Palestinian society.
