    While the Arab Armies were armed to the teeth by the USSR, with commanders, foreign advisors, trainers, advanced tanks, Migs, weapons, missiles, radar systems, and numerical and surprise advantage, while attacking from 2 opposite fronts and all that on the day Israel was most exposed on it's holiest Yom Kippur day, Israel was still able to push the genocidal Arabs back, with all that in mind, the Yom Kippur war was a greater military achievement and precedent than the Six-Days war, where one would fall anyway without air support. Despite the heavy losses, and the support our enemies enjoyed by a world super power, Israel was able to mark another military achievement and all analysts were impressed. Even when the Arabs had so many advantages including technological advantage of the USSR, the IDF soldier, defending from a moral high ground and strengthened by the fact that should he falter, his family and people will be slaughtered and raped, enabled Israel to push genocide away from it's borders. Never again.
