It has now been fifty years since the Six Day War, the unification of Jerusalem, the annexation of the Golan Heights and the Settlements in the West Bank. In that time, we have seen more war and bloodshed, peace with Egypt and Jordan, and more peace attempts with the Palestinians than can be counted. Some promote an undivided Jerusalem and others a universal one. We have seen the rise of modern terrorism, as well as, the modern Peace Movements and various groups that wish to both support and disparage Israel. How much has happened and how did we get here? And, where might we be headed in the future? We will attempt to retrace and dissect recent history, and predict what could, should and might happen down the road.
