The incident occurred on June 8 1967 during the Israeli Six Day War. There was much turmoil in America at that time. The Vietnam war was raging and rioting was occurring all over the country. This made it easy for the story to be suppressed. If you are not familiar with the attack. I would encourage you to research it for yourselves. I have enclosed a video that was uploaded in 2015. Much more information has come out since then.
