The Six-Day War, in June 1967, was pivotal in the history of Israel and its neighbors, changing the political, diplomatic, military and psychosocial landscape completely. The shortest war in recent memory has had seismic effects that resonate profoundly, even today, fifty years later. Many current issues, such as Israel’s relationship with the Arab states and the Palestinians, Israel’s borders, the status of Jerusalem, prospects for peace, the special U.S.-Israeli relationship and Russian influence in the region, to name a few, have substantially been reshaped by those momentous days in 1967. To commemorate the war’s fiftieth anniversary, this course will offer several different perspectives on the war’s continuing impact on Israel domestically, regionally, and globally.
