June the Fifth, 1967, Plus 46 Years

Uzi Narkis, Moshe Dayan, Yitzhak Rabin enter Jerusalem's Old City through Lion's Gate/Saint Stephen's Gate, June 7, 1967
It is another June 5, 46 years since June 5, 1967, when the Middle East as we know it today began to emerge.

I've blogged annually on June 5 since 2009 and on many other occasions have addressed the 1967 war. Rather than repeat myself, I'll link. Of course you'll find a lot under my 1967 War tag, and under my Nasser tagged posts as well, and then there was my post on the death of Zakaria Mohieddin.
