    Israel enjoyed Arab ineffective opposition since it had declared itself a state in 1948. Most of Arabs regimes were inept or openly or sectretly allied to Israel. Wars and conflicts made were occasions for the well tarined and well supplied Israeli forces to get easy victories. Arab armies are exactly the opposite and msot of times led by corrupt officers and regimes. When Israel is confronting true Jihadis and aptriots. even with light armed, Israel's superiorit is useless. Hezbullah and hamas are vivid examples. Now, Muslims are coming to the theatre. Turkey, iran and hopefully others would be formidable challenges to Israel and its Western and Arab backers. This is a miraculous development. Erdogan is reportdely asking israel's not only to stop its blockade of gaza, but also to opologize and pay compensation to the Palestinian victims. That's absolutely a new language never heard of.
