The Unbearable Lightness of my Critics...

Look at this post from a reader:
"Egypt got rid of the UNEF forces. Right? You don't have a problem with that.

If Egypt didn't want foreign troops on its territory, why should anyone expect Israel to want them on its territory?

How come, according to you its OK for Egypt not to want UNEF forces, but its not OK for Israel to be similarly UNEF free?"

The point is not to advocate or not to advocate for the Egyptian move. It is to make the point that the Israeli propaganda claim that Egypt was on a war to destroy the Zionist state is complete and utter nonsense. But I will be getting into more and more details, regarding the straights of tiran, regarding the Golan front, etc.

More importantly, I will soon begin documenting internal Israeli discussions, and they will overwhelmingly show how eager Israel was to go to war, and how little of a threat they truly deemed any of the Arab states. Stay tuned!

If I may make a suggestion. Next time, instead of posting that your sources are "here, here, here, here, and here" with a triumphant sort of "see how many sources support me" air, why don't you actually quote whatever it is that you feel is most authoritative and relevant. Have some respect for your readers.
