Tobia, Arab states were always aware of Israeli military and nuclear capabilities. During the only Arab attack on Israel, in 1973, the objectives of Egyptian and Syrian armies were limited to regaining control of territories that Israel occupied during her aggression in 1967. This is history, and both Israeli and Arab historians have long ago agreed on this fact. Egypt had achieved her objective. Although, she suffered a military defeat on the 2nd week of the war, her army had defeated the feeling of invincibility that Israel had prior to the war and pushed Israel towards the Geneva talks and the final peace accord with Egypt. Arab states were not seeking destruction of Israel in 1973, 1967.
