Yum Kippur War

Yum Kippur War, October 6, 1973

Yum yum, Yum Kippur
Encore bore for more
More, yum to the core
Sweet, so Yum Kippur

Oh you keep the score
War! fee flee faux from
Please, gotta have some
Yum Kippur keep your

Yum yum, keep your ... land

"Day of Atonement," or Yum Kippur, the holiest day in Israel.

Did the Yum Kippur War have any linkages to the past preemptive wars undertaken by Israel against its neighbors?

Yes, Israel has been and continues practicing the 'preemptive' paradigm even before its inception -- into the fray of nations. So, don't think the neo-conservatives suddenly, happened upon a sinister flash of genius as outlined in PNAC.

The convenient concept of preemption is as old as war itself. The US routinely, used the pretext of preemption against the indigenous people of North America and the United States of Mexico in efforts to fulfill its "manifest destiny" to rule the darker hues of humanity - the darker the hue, the more domination exercised.

Furthermore, Israel has been guarding the throne of preemption even prior to its formal and UN sanctioned nation status in 1948. Although, false flag operations, provocative incursions into Arab territories and control of information flowing from the region were complementary, components of the strategy.
"The charge that criticism of Israel is implicitly anti-Semitic -- is regarded in Israel and the United States as Israel's trump card. If it has been played more insistently and aggressively in recent years, that is because it is now the only card left."
Israel has always sought to manage world opinion through various devices precisely, because it is dependent upon support from without. Every conceivable outrage in the Mid East involving Israel was spun to avail Arab culpability.

This is not to say, that Arabs have never been at fault. The point is that Israel has managed to control the flow of information concerning events that obviously, involve degrees of blame. However, the control of discourse has mitigated any Israeli malfeasance.

Nevertheless, the Yum Kippur War was avoidable, because the President of Egypt, Anwar Sadat, offered Israel peace in 1971. However, Israel refused the peace intiative. It was not until Egypt proved to Israel that it too, could amass a military deterrent that Israel chose to sign the Camp David Accords and finally, accept peace. It would therefore, seem that only a deterrent will avail Zionist atonement.
