1 Looking at where this source came from a history book my primary opinion would be that the author should place no blame at all on either parties detailed in his writings The purpose of a history book is not to put forward the opinions of the writer but to display the facts and events of the time period in question However as is most common nowadays books such as these can be used by governments as propaganda and for all I know the author could be extremely biased Then the date should give a further clue before any of the material in question has even been read Although written nine years after the Six Day War of June 1967 this extract can hardly be deemed to have been written in hind sight as the hostility between the Arabs and Israelis was still present at the time of its publication If the author was someone who was not totally impartial perhaps they had relatives on one of the opposing factions or were themselves members then in such a time of heated emotions ones anger might begin to affect the impartiality of your writing whether deliberate or subconsciously Upon reading the article you notice that it is very fairly set out into two sections the Israelis reasons for going to war and the Arabs You are told in the first paragraph that the Arab powers were threatening her Israel with destruction and were ready to attack her as well as Egypt had already closed the Gulf of Akaba which she knew Israel would regard as an act of war Also the writer states Israel could not afford to let the Arabs strike first for she was too weak and too vulnerable In the second paragraph that for the reasons of the Arabs you are told The Arabs say that Israel should not have been in existence at all
