History Repeating Itself

In a discussion about Shavuos, someone made the point that our holidays are not mere commemorations of events that occurred years ago.  On a Yom Tov, the same spiritual energy that was present the first time, is present again.

They noted that this week, according to the Hebrew date, marks 46 years since the miraculous victory of the Six Day War.  Likewise, this week, Israel bombed Syria for the second time in a few days, the date coinciding with the start of the Six Day War.  It was suggested that their success had to do with this being a spiritually propitious time to fight our enemies.
