 In this June 6, 1967 file photo, a dead Egyptian soldier and a knocked out Egyptian tank are seen in the Sinai desert, during the Six-Day War. It may well be remembered as a pyrrhic victory for Israel: a six-day war in which it vanquished several Arab armies, only to be saddled with a 50-year fight with the Palestinians for the Holy Land. A half century after the watershed 1967 Mideast war, many in Israel think the lighting victory planted the seeds of doom. (Image: AP)
