Unlike the Arabs, they had good leaders and had coordination and organization. Israelis were motivated to fight to save their new country. Also, Israelis were always prepared for war and more and more Jews from different parts of the world migrated to Israel to help out.Israelis had planned attacks in the war of 1956 to strengthen their position. Israelis were able to capture the Sinai Peninsula but had to give it back in 1957. Israelis had foreign support from Britain and France.In the 1967 war, again, Israeli strengths and Arab weaknesses led to Arab defeat. Israelis effectively planned a surprised attack which took Arab states by surprise. By the first day, Israeli troops had destroyed Arab air forces and had full control over the skies. This shows again, that Israelis had the best-equipped troops in the Middle East and had aid from the US. They had US electronic equipment and their arms were far better then the Arab states, they were highly skilled and well trained. Israel became richer and more developed since the war of 1956 and they had foreign aid from the US. The US knew Russia was arming Egypt and Syria and gave Israel $1000 million a year, which Israelis used wisely to improve their economy and spend most on arms. The Arab armies were virtually useless without their air force.
