Why are Arabs so Powerless, when It comes to Israel? 22 Arab countries vs Israel |Nazuk Surat e Haal


Israel is oppressing the Palestinians for years. 22 Arab countries around it were not able to stop that. In terms of military, economy, and manpower, Arab countries are much powerful than Israel. Still, Arab kings and sheiks bow their heads before Israel, which has almost zero natural resources. All we see from the Arab countries is condemning the oppressors and crying with the oppressed.

Why are Arabs so powerless, when it comes to Israel?
Some people may think that Israel is soo powerful only because the United States and other European countries support it, but the facts show a different story. From 2000 to 2019 weapons supplied to Israel by the Western powers which include the US, UK, France, Spain, Germany are documented at a massive $9.6 billion.

But within that 20-year period, the same document shows this amount is dominated by arms sold by the same suppliers to Saudi Arabia which is $29.3bn,

to Egypt $17.5bn,

to Iraq $9.1bn,

and to Qatar $6bn.

And yet these expensive weapons will provide little protection if Israel ever chooses to attack Arab lands again.


When it comes to competition, Israel does not compete with Arab countries at all. The population of Israel is far less than Arab countries. Israel has a population of 9 million, while the 22 Arab countries have a population of 423 million, which is 98% more than Israel.

some people blame Arab disunity for the condition of Palestine. Arabs are indeed bitterly divided. But when were they not? From about CE 634 to CE 750 is the only period in history when they stood together. Then, after Nasser won the Suez War against Britain, Arabs united again for a brief, euphoric moment. But this unity did nothing to avert their crushing defeat in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, that which forever changed borders. Even if the Fatah and Hamas patch up their differences, doing so will not change things fundamentally.

The secret of Israel’s strength is not hidden in its weaponry. Israel uses the same magic that enabled just a handful of 18th-century Englishmen to colonize the entire Indian subcontinent. Let’s recall that in ruling over 200 million natives for 250 years, at no time did Britain have more than 50,000 white soldiers on Indian soil. Although better guns and cannons gave them an edge, in fact, their real not-so-secret weapon was much bigger.
That weapon was a system of organized thought based upon a rational and secular approach to life, a modern system of justice, and a new set of social relations. This was sustained and enhanced by Enlightenment-era education that de-emphasized rote learning of the scriptures, was this-worldly and future-oriented, and which focused upon problem-solving skills using systematic, scientific thinking. Having invented modern means of communication such as railways and the telegraph, a mere island in the North Sea could boast of an empire over which the sun never sets.


The problem is not genetics. Arabs have a brilliant past and are probably just as smart as Israelis. But the two groups have different attitudes towards success and different role models. The Israelis want to be Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, John von Neumann, George Wald, Paul Samuelson, Gertrude Elion, Ralph Lauren, George Soros, or a thousand other such names that fill textbooks on physics, philosophy, technology, medicine, and business. Compare this with the Arab boy who wants to be Salahuddin Ayubi, ertugrul Ghazi, or Tariq bin Ziyad. He does not know about Ibn Sina, Al Khwarizmi, Abu Nasr Al-Farabi, etc. Arabs need to understand that that brain will rule over brawn,

We live in a cruel world which, of course, we must try our best to make less cruel and more humane. But making a socially just world requires much more than condemning the oppressors and crying with the oppressed. Instead, the weak must be made stronger. That strength does not derive from oil or nuclear bombs. Instead, it springs from the human brain, but only when that superb gift of nature is appropriately tutored and trained within a system of secular values that cherishes and rewards logical thinking, questioning, and creativity.
