The harbor was God's work, and since it was a good place for ships to stop, the city grew around it. The naval base came because the US Navy needed a homeport for its Western Pacific Fleet. (The attack was an attempt to eliminate that fleet so Japan could take the resources of Asia without opposition.) they used the harbor because it was one waY IN AND ONE WAY OUT. and it was easy to launch missions from there

Nothing. "Pearl Harbor" was a Japanese Attack on the United States naval base in Hawaii called Pearl Harbor. The Japanese did not include Jews in their decision to attack Pearl Harbor nor were Jews engaged in the defense of Pearl Harbor, save for those Jews who were American soldiers on the base.

Dredging of the Pearl Harbor channel entrance began in 1910 and, on December 14, 1911, USS CALIFORNIA (CA 6) became the first warship to pass through the new channel into Pearl Harbor.
