January 24: The United States and the Arab-Israeli Conflict
As the 1960’s progressed, the US Government closely monitored the problems between the Arabs and Israelis, while also staying out of the conflict. However, all of that changed in 1967, following the Six Day War. As Israel emerged victorious the June War, the Johnson Administration viewed Israel as an essential bulwark to Soviet expansionism in the Middle East. Just six years later, following the Yom Kippur War, US foreign policy changed yet again, as the Americans established a close alliance with Egypt. The United States hoped for peace in the Middle East throughout the remainder of the 1970’s, but the Iranian Revolution and subsequent hostage crisis served to further complicate those efforts.
