Kudos with a question

Reader comment on item: [Michael Oren's] "Six Days of War"

Daniel Pipes, you are to be rewarded with many kudos for your excellent reporting.
On this specific article, (6 day war) I specifically remember the overwhelming braggadocio that all three of Israel's enemies were continuously spouting just prior to their invasion in 1967. "They will consume Israel within one week"....No problem
whatsoever! Your related article failed to mention this: The Arab armies were running south and west in dire panic the day Israel's forces came at them in the Sinai head on.
They ran like Jesse Owens without even giving their "enemy" a fight. This also happened when our ground troops moved north in Iraq in 1991. The great Iraqi force ran like there was no tomorrow. It is this reason (you failed to mention) that
Israel will win a possible future war with the Palestinians. Am I wrong?
