On the Six-Day War, the Naksa Day and the Resolution 242.

Today, Sunday, June 5, 2011, Palestine and its supporters commemorate the so-called Naksa Day. Naksa means Setback in Arabic, and the Naksa Day refers to the beginning of the Six-Day War on Monday, June 5, 1967, which led to the occupation of the Syrian Golan Heights, the Egyptian Sinai, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem by Israel.

The Naksa Day should not be confused with the Nakba Day (Nakba means Catastrophe in Arabic), which commemorates the 1947 to 1948 Palestinian exodus from what today is the Jewish State, even though both of the days have one thing to do with each other: all the useful idiots who try to cross Israel's borders unlawfully in order to cause confrontations, intended these ones to delegitimize the Jewish State in the eyes of the public opinion.

The Six-Day War prompted the United Nations Security Council to pass the Resolution 242 on November 22, 1967. This Resolution is usually portrayed as intended to make Israel to withdraw from all the territories occupied in the Six-Day War to the so-called 1967 borders, leaving the Palestinians with the opportunity of creating a State of their own in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip with its capital in East Jerusalem.

Well, the truth is that such claims regarding the U.N.S.C.'s Resolution 242 are false, according to its drafters themselves. Will the Spanish maintream media report clearly about this issue?
