Abstract

June 8, 1967 stands as yet another “date of infamy” in the annals of American history.

And even though numerically the dead and wounded American servicemen numbered in the hundreds instead thousands, June 8, 1967 is as heinous a date of infamy as the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, the 9/11 attacks on New York, the Pentagon, and “Flight 93.”

And this time the perpetrator was not an enemy; rather, it was an ally whose existence, economy, and security have been solely dependent on America’s perpetual beneficence.

Not only did Israel murder and wound sailors, in cold blood, on an unarmed American ship, but they also got away with their murderous crime and, for the past 53 years, they have been handsomely rewarded for their crime.

For Israel, crime pays abundantly.
