    Answer: Israel's self defense. It was famously a six-day war, and in varying guises the conflict has so far lasted another 40 years.

    For six days, beginning June 5, 1967, Israel battled Egypt, Jordan and Syria. As a result of the fighting, Israel won control of the Sinai desert, the Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Golan Heights.

    The 1967 combatants unknowingly planted the seeds for much of what was to come: the rise of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, another all-out Arab-Israeli war in 1973, construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank and Gaza, a peace treaty between Israel and Egypt, a war in Lebanon.

    They have had a constant struggle because they were created as a Zionist state in the holy land. Most of Israeli people practice the Jewish faith, and they are mostly isolated in Israel while the other surrounding countries that also make up the holy land all practice religions such as Islam, Buddhism, etc. This causes constant problems, especially when they fight over what part of the holy land belongs to them and what part belongs to another country.

    I can't think of any. They have often received military aid from Western countries, they have nuclear capabilities unlike their neighbors, they have the United States to excuse whatever they wish to do.
