Did the Israelis know that the six-day war was going to happen?
The Israelis knew that a war with Egypt and Syria was certainly imminent. The fact that the war started on June 5, 1967 as opposed to sometime in September or October was Israel's choice since they struck pre-emptively.
In terms of why the Israelis knew the war was imminent:
1) "Wipe Israel off the Map" Statements: Arab Nationalists, especially Charismatic Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, were pushing strongly for Israel's elimination and made daily speeches about how the Arab States were going to invade and remove Israel from the map to form a unified Arab State. He began to coordinate military strategy with Syria and Jordan (to a lesser degree) as to how to invade Israel effectively. These threats were made daily and consistently in 1967. Additional troops were added to the Egyptian Army and that army began to be arrayed closer and closer to the Israeli border.
2) Removal of UNEF Forces: As a condition of the Israeli withdrawal from the Sinai Peninsula in 1956, the UN deployed security forces to the Sinai Peninsula to prevent Egypt from massing troops in the Sinai. Nasser evicted the UNEF (the UN security force) from the Sinai Peninsula in contravention of the Armistice for the 1956 Suez Crisis and placed large numbers of Egyptian soldiers and armored divisions on the Israeli-Egyptian border.
3) Arab Military Coordination: Nasser coordinated military strategy quite closely with Syria and Jordan. It was clear to many at the time that these forces would not sit idle for long. A number of Syrian battalions were positioning themselves in the Golan Heights above the Sea of Galilee and Jordanian positions in the West Bank were becoming more entrenched.
4) Closure of Waterways: Egypt, counter to the armistice ending the 1956 War, closed the Suez Canal to Israeli shipping and then proceeded to close the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping, cutting Israel off from trade with Iran which was Israel's greatest ally in the Middle East at the time and primary supplier of petroleum. This had the effect of strangling Israel and is considered by Israel to be the primary causus belli.

No. Had the government known what was going to happen, the government would have prevented it from happening.
Verbal abuse might happen when you are getting to know him. Because you know that when you first meet him, he is not going to start verbally abusing you. He is going to be nice to you.
It sank so slowly I think all realized it was going to happen before it did.
I doubt the world will last until that date. If it does there is no way to know what will happen.

Premonition is the word you seek.

The Israelis are the citizens of the country of Israel. Most of them simply want to work a job and come home to raise their kids in peace. If there is something in particular that you wish to know about what Israelis are or think, you need to ask a more directed question.

It means you don't know what is going to happen next.
When you don't even know it was going to happen
sometimes it is because you might not know what is going to happen.
I believe that it means that you never know what is going to happen in your life and therefore anything can and will happen. And this theory would explain how anything can happen.
Probably not, but they did know that japan is on the ring of fire (the border between two plates) so earthquakes are more likely to happen.
The future is what you make of it. There is no way to know what is going to happen. I'm still waiting for my flying car!

Suspense is built when the reader either doesn't know what's going to happen, or doesn't know how it's going to happen. Mystery means something unknown, so it's a major part of suspense by definition.

Well it depends how long they have been there. Most of the prisoners did not know at first. But soon came to realize that they were in fact going to die
No because we don't know when a earthquake is going to happen and then create a tsunami.

I don't know if "scared" is the right word. She was probably worried about what was going to happen to her as well as about what was going to happen to Luke, Han, and Chewie. But she wasn't scared in the sense of being frightened.
It is pretty much certain as natural disasters in 2025 as they happen every year. However exactly what will happen and where or when is impossible to know.
