In the name of Allah, the Merciful to all, the Compassionate
I once had a discussion with one of my friends who is the son of a late RCAF fighter pilot, killed in World War II. Because of his father, he knew many in the military/intelligence community. At that time, he was very adamant about how Mossad and other Israeli intelligent services are superior to the western ones, let alone third world middle eastern countries. If you search on the internet, you will find many articles about how Jews are smarter than other ethnicities, and their IQ is 10 to 15 points above the average. Especially Ashkenazic Jews of European origins, who form a majority of migrated Israeli citizens.
On the other hand, I did not buy this, because I can name many occasions when Israelis shot themselves in the foot. Their strategy, if one can call it that, is to create a beast and then slay that beast in such a brutal and professional way that teaches everybody else a lesson. And when they find that the beast of their own creation grows in such a way that they cannot slay it, they have temper tantrums and blame others.
“Any example?”, you might ask.
