    Israel intends to make sure that no Arab nation can defend itself from Israeli attacks via missiles or airstrikes. Israel will not tolerate any danger to it's pilots when they are dispatched over international borders to bravely drop explosives on other nations. In 1967, Israel launched air strikes to destroy the air forces of 3 Arab nations that had not even initiated battle against Israel. Most of these aircraft were still on the ground when Israel bombed them. Some might call this "peremptory", others may call it international terrorism and a war crime. Whatever your feelings, this clearly shows an aversion to any Arabs having the means to defend themselves, even withing their own borders. It was this sneak attack (think about Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor), that allowed Israel to exponentially increase it's defacto land mass by seizing land from Egypt, Jordan,Syria and Lebanon. Of course, this is illegal for any other nation to do, but not for Israel, at least in it's own eyes. Since the Israeli public has proven a low tolerance for Israeli casualties, this is seen as one of the multitude of "existential threats" to Israel's ability to drop explosives in other countries, when it desires. Israel has a vested interest in making sure that it's victims are defenseless. Therefore, it pressures others to insure that it is the only nation in the ME that is allowed to receive "advanced weaponry" from other nations.
