How War Marooned 15 Ships in The Suez Canal For Eight Years  

The Arabs and the Jews have never got along. Since the rise of Zionism and Arab nationalism towards the end of the 19th century, the two groups have been involved in petty conflicts that have often led to serious consequences. But out of all the horrible things war entails, one of the best things to come out of the conflict in the Middle East is the story of the "Yellow Fleet".
