Just a war?

Oh the BBC, this report on Egypt's state of affairs includes this section:
'Egypt's military leader has said the country is undergoing a "sensitive stage" in its history, and called for people to "rally round national goals".

Speaking on the anniversary of the 1973 war with Israel, Field Marshal Mohamed Tantawi said he was confident Egyptians could build a "strong modern state".'
'the 1973 war with Israel' - that's it, no context? Nothing about how Egypt and other Islamic countries invaded  Israel on Judaism's holiest day. You can bet your bottom dollar that any story about Jerusalem or the West Bank will have context placed upon it.
