Here's what Jews for Justice in the Middle East has to say about the War of Independence.

This article by the BBC gives information about the Yom Kippur War. It says:

"Unable to regain the territory they had lost in 1967 by diplomatic means, Egypt and Syria launched major offensives against Israel on the Jewish festival of the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur. The clashes are also known as the Ramadan war.

So in the case of the War of Independance, your assertion, GUEST, Forum Lurker, is not undisputed. In the case of the Yom Kippur War, things weren't quite as black and white as you make them out to be.
