The Six Day War: A Concise Introduction to the War that Changed the Middle East

by Juan Marcos Bejarano Gutierrez

The Six Day War was an impressive and momentous event which forever altered the Middle East landscape. The State of Israel which had successfully survived the war of independence and established itself militarily during the Suez Crisis of 1956 in cooperation with Britain and France now demonstrated a level of military sophistication unimagined to most including the Israeli military itself. 
International relationships were altered and strained however as a result of Israel’s preemptive strike. The crisis strained Israel’s relationship with France. It also initiated a stronger but complicated relationship with the United States. The unprecedented victory of ’67 had long-term ramifications politically within and outside of Israel as a result of its continued presence in what the world labeled as occupied territories and strengthened American Jewish support for Israel. 
The Six-Day War began on June 5 and lasted through June 10, 1967. It pitted Israel against Egypt, i.e., the United Arab Republic, Jordan, Syria as well as with smaller contingents from Iraq, Libya, and Tunisia. After a period of increasing tension precipitated in part by terrorist activity supported by Syria but often originating from Jordanian soil, tensions between Egypt and Israel escalated quickly. 
The war began on June 5 with surprise air strikes against Arab air forces. As a result of the ensuing battle, Israel took control of the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan, and the Golan Heights from Syria. 
The momentous victory had enduring consequences as the status of the territories captured by Israel during the war and the subsequent status of Palestinians remain vital concerns in the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict which remains unresolved in the 21st century.



Aliens

by William J. Ryan

Life is not complicated, our defective split brains make this world full of riddles and we must rise above the confusion of our defective split brains.
Greedy people make things complicated to deliberately hide the truth. There is easy money to make for the few, if only a few know the truth. Knowledge is money and money is power and power can buy anythingâ?¦ like governments.
Today the rich flaunt their power over the rest of us in annual global meetings, showing off their religious symbols. Their power over us is unchallenged, because they own everything, including god and the future devastation as it’s going on.
This book examines the hard facts of friendly aliens coming to earth. It is also of people behind governments they lie to their people to get the knowledge for new products that they can sell as their own invention.
Everything behind government is about power and money and the use of religion to control the masses. They will stop at nothing to keep control, power and money. It’s just a big game to them.



Future under Donald Trump /In the Fashion of Hitler: Walk with Me Stepping toward the Future

by Charles Royals

People awake each morning with many of the same problems they had the day before. While people are dressing they listen to the radio or watch TV, more bad news through the media is all they can see. While some people have breakfast and read a paper when their feet hit the floor get more bad news before they walk out the front door.
American people have not under gone such fear and anger since the release of ‘Birth of a Nation’ in “1915” when America was ripped apart by racism and White supremacy. According to Ebert, R., “‘Birth of a Nation’ has long been one of the embarrassments of film scholarship.” (Ebert) African Americans were depicted as a beast, Ebert, R., also stated: “It can’t be ignored and yet it was regarded as outrageously racist even at a time when racism was hardly a household word.” (Ebert)

Italy and Her Invaders: Volume VI – The Lombard Kingdom

by Thomas Hodgkin

            The century whose early years witnessed the death of Pope Gregory the Great, and the establishment of something like peaceful relations between the Empire and the Lombards in Italy, was one of a strangely mingled character. As far as Western Europe was concerned (perhaps we might say as far as the Aryan races were concerned) it was, on the whole, monotonous, uneventful, unimportant; but the changes wrought during its course in the regions of the East, the immense spiritual revolution which it witnessed among the Semitic peoples, and which has profoundly modified the condition of a quarter of the human race at the present day,â??these characteristics entitle the seventh century to a place in the very foremost rank of the great epochs of the world’s history
            Let us briefly survey the events which were happening in the rest of Europe and round the Mediterranean Sea during the hundred years which now lie before us.
            In England, the great achievement of Gregory (the introduction of Christianity) was carried triumphantly forward. Edwin of Deira, in his youth the hunted outlaw, in his manhood the king of Northumbria, and the mightiest in all the land of Britain, wrought with brain and sword for the supremacy of the faith which he had learned from Paulinus. Benedict Biscop introduced into the barbarous land the architecture and the mosaics of Italy. The statesman-archbishop Wilfrid of York won for Rome that victory over the usages and teaching of Iona which even the memory of the saintly Aidan was unable long to postpone. When the century closed, the body of St. Cuthbert, monk and bishop, had been for thirteen years lying in its first resting place at Lindisfarne; and the chief herald of his fame, that Beda who was to be known by the title of Venerable, was still a young deacon of twenty-seven years of age. The great Northumbrian kingdom to which they both belonged, and of which the seventh century had beheld the glory, was already slowly falling into ruins…



A Short Introduction to Confucius

by John Lord

About one hundred years after the great religious movement in India under Buddha, a man was born in China who inaugurated a somewhat similar movement there, and who impressed his character and principles on three hundred millions of people. It cannot be said that he was the founder of a new religion, since he aimed only to revive what was ancient. To quote his own words, he was “a transmitter, and not a maker.” But he was, nevertheless, a very extraordinary character; and if greatness is to be measured by results, I know of no heathen teacher whose work has been so permanent. In genius, in creative power, he was inferior to many; but in influence he has had no equal among the sages of the world.
“Confucius” is a Latin name given him by Jesuit missionaries in China; his real name was K’ung-foo-tseu. He was born about 550 B.C., in the province of Loo, and was the contemporary of Belshazzar, of Cyrus, of Croesus, and of Pisistratus. It is claimed that Confucius was a descendant of one of the early emperors of China, of the Chow dynasty, 1121 B.C.; but he was simply of an upper-class family of the State of Loo, one of the provinces of the empire,–his father and grandfather having been prime ministers to the reigning princes or dukes of Loo, which State resembled a feudal province of France in the Middle Ages, acknowledging only a nominal fealty to the Emperor…



The Fiddle

by Natalie Cumming

A true story, tracing a precious violin across landscapes devastated by war and terror, to safety and restoration in 21st century Britain.
Abraham and his family flee the Bolsheviks, from St. Petersburg to Odessa and safety in the UK. Abraham’s skill on the violin earns them food and lodgings, as they struggle through the freezing Russian winter.
The violin passes to Rosa, Abraham’s daughter, violinist with the famous Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Arrested by the Nazis on Kristellnacht 1938 she is sent to Mauthausen Concentration Camp, and then to Auschwitz, where her musical talent sees her forced to join the Women’s Orchestra and saves her life. She spends the last 5 months of the war in Belsen, before testifying at the Nuremberg Trials, exposing the horrors of the Nazi death camps.
Rosa’s brother Israel, inherits the violin. A celebrated musician, he joins ENSA during the war, entertaining the troops. Post war, he investigates Nazis trying to escape trial. He forms several popular bands, well-known throughout the 60’s & 70’s.
Finally, the violin comes to his daughter Natalie, who has written her family’s extraordinary story, lest the world should ever forget global events, against which the journey of this beautiful instrument is told.
