The claim that if a large percent of the 3.5 million Jews in Poland could reasonably defend themselves if they were prepared would not have impacted the Wehrmacht is stupid.
I don't think anyone didn't say they would have a impact. But the polish army didn't have much impact. So why some think armed civilians would have had much impact i don't know.

I find this line of reasoning even more interesting given your locale.
Do you really want me to go down that road. We would definitely be going of topic.

The Jews later did defend the state of Israel without the best of weapons at its founding.
That's not comparing like with like. We were talking about the German army during ww2. Not some Arab armies. The German army would have went trough the state of Israel if it was in existence at the time for a shortcut.
