Yes it make good sence next time I would not have that many sentences.
I tend to write alot too, but I thought the size was alright. And in your first set of parentheses the second "the" is unnecessary, while you mentioned "leaded" twice, I'm pretty sure it would be just "lead." Overall it's pretty clear.
On thing I don't think you've made sufficiently clear is that the Arabs in the British Protectorate of Palestine (which preceded both the state of Israel and the state of Jordan) were passionately opposed to the creation of a Jewish state long before the state came into existence. Their opposition to the creation of the Jewish state did not begin with the 1948 war, but rather was a direct cause of it.
You also haven't assessed the impact on Israel. My impression is that their victory against their Arab enemies in 1948 served as a beacon of hope and inspiration to European and American Jews, a mere 3 years after the end of the Holocaust in Europe. That juxtaposition, of a big victory following an appalling defeat, could easily have led the young state of Israel to assume an iconic importance in the minds of Jews in Europe and America, as well as their own.
Furthermore, since Israel was born in armed struggle, and came so soon after the Holocaust, it has ever after placed an extremely high priority on its military competence, with universal service -- both men and women -- and a vigorous defense industry, up to and including the design and construction of nuclear weapons, we believe.
