Hi Richard, I believe if the Arabs would have higher military power as opposed to Israel there would be no single Jew left in the Levant alive. If the Arabs would have won any war Israel would be destroyed. The reason they haven't done it, because they are not capable to do this at the moment. On the other hand, it's a known fact that Israel had nukes and other WMD since 1960-s. During 2 major wars - 1967 and 1973 when Israel faced existential threat, they didn't use it or threaten to use it. That is the difference. If other side would have it, I don't have any slight doubt that they would have used it against Israel long time ago. So please don't compare those 2 sides.
