Unlike the postman, "opportunity" rarely knocks twice. !967 was a different time----without elaborating, Israel was the underdog, Egypt was the belligerent one, and the world was on Israel's side. Today, after close to 40 years of a "war" of attrition, the blame is cloudy at this point in time in the eyes of the world. Israel is no longer the underdog and now must account for it's actions. As an Arab leader said after the 1948 war, "We have a secret weapon, "Time." He knew what he was talking about!
