Abstract


The State of Israel was born in the storm of war and has been in a state of military confrontation ever since, which continues even as these lines are being written. Israel has fought six full-scale wars since its establishment: the War of Independence (1948), the Sinai War (1956), the Six Day War (1967), the War of Attrition (1970s), the Yom Kippur – or October – War (1973), and the Lebanon War (1982).

Israel has found itself in unabated military confrontations, most recently capped by the uprising (known in Arabic as the Intifada) being waged against it by the Palestinian Authority since September 2000.
