Although the fighting lasted only six days in June of 1967, the effects of the Six Day War are still apparent today. On its 40th anniversary, the region remains trapped in conflict and is every bit as explosive as it was then. The consequences of the war, born out of secular nationalist dreams, unleashed religious conflicts which permeated the region and the world; the Six Day War has forever changed the politics of the Middle East by helping to destroy the secular basis of Pan-Arab nationalism and transform secular Zionism. It gave rise to a Palestinian nationalist movement and helped unleash the fury of fundamentalism. SIX DAYS covers the weeks that preceded the war, its six days of fighting and the repercussions.
