Arabs can buy f15s, but their pilots can never be trained enough to fly them effectively (like they could not fly mig21s properly 40 years ago), it is a question of training, discipline and know-how. Plus, the antiquated avionics and the weapons are sold to them in such a way that the only function of the f15s can be to parade during the national days, they are pure ornaments. Can you believe that the american could ever sell true weapons to arabs for heavens sake !! So Israel's arguments are baseless. Only nonwestern country (apart from Japan, Russia and China) that, at least in theory, can create airborne danger to Israel is india and it would never do it anyway. I smell paranoia in the air.
