Joseph is speculating again, shaping historical facts they way he wants it. To someone who is not "in the know" about historical facts: - Jordanian Arab Legion was a very fine military force, well-trained, well-equipped and led by british officer. - Egyptian, Syrian, Lebanese and Iraqi regular army formations took part in the war as well. On the Israeli side were Haganah-trained people, folks from the Jewish brigade that fought with the British in WW2 and some volunteers. Israeli jews had no tanks, no air force. Ok, twist history some more, Joseph, make it a "path to conquest" out of several defensive wars that Israel fought, some of which had almost ended in defeat.
