I've just been reading up on the Egyptian military, over 200 F16s and the 10th largest armed forces in the world. That, if they went all in, would
even this out quickly.
Now the MB have a nice secure base behind them what better time to start flinging rockets into Israel, and when they dare to strike back, unite in
righteous indignation and proclaim jihad.
Poke a bear long enough, even with just a small stick, and eventually the bear will bite. And bite hard.

because: (no reason given)
In 1948, 5 Arab countries invaded the newly formed country of Israel. Israel repulsed the invaders and captured land.
In 1956, Egypt blockaded Israeli shipping through the Suez canal, the gulf of Aqaba and the Straits of Tiran. In 1967, Egypt ejected UN observers from
the border zone and massed troops on Israel's southern border. Israel in a pre-emptive strike, destroyed the Egyptian Air Force, then did the same to
the Jordanian, Iraqi and Syrian Air Forces. As a result of the 1967 battles, Israel captured more land.
On Yom Kippur in 1973, Syria and Egypt staged a surprise attack on Israel. After Israel recovered, they counterattacked and made large advances
through Syrian and Egyptian territory. After Israel encircled the Egyptian Third Army, the Soviet Union threatened to enter the conflict. This led to
the US and Soviets brokering a ceasefire.
Yes, the Arabs could defeat Israel. They have tried before and the Israelis won despite being outnumbered in most categories, but that doesn't mean
that they can't do it next time.
