Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a country in Southwest Asia located on the southeastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea. It has borders with Lebanon in the north, Syria and Jordan in the east, and Egypt on the southwest, and contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. The West Bank and Gaza Strip, which are partially administrated by the Palestinian National Authority, are also adjacent. With a population of about 7.2 million, the majority of whom are Jews, Israel is the world's only Jewish state. It is also home to Arab Muslims, Christians and Druze, as well as other religious and ethnic minority groups. Throughout the country can be found shrines and pilgrimage sites that are holy to all these religions.
Jerusalem is the nation's capital, seat of government, and largest city.
Seeing how the Grenye ran their country of Bucovin caused Hasso Pemsel to wonder what would happen if the Jews, whom the Grenye resembled, had a country of their own.

Possibly, considering that Germans, for all their faults, made some of the greatest soldiers ever born.
By the late 22nd century, the Arab World had defeated Israel and the nation had ceased to exist. A nationalist movement, including the Second Irgun, had formed and sought the recreation of the state of Israel.
In the 21st Century, Israel was defeated by its enemies and ceased to exist as a nation. A nationalist movement, including the Second Irgun, had formed and sought the recreation of the state of Israel in the 22nd Century. To this end, members of the Second Irgun placed agents in Palestine with the mission of stirring up rebellion. Their attacks failed to produce the desired rebellion, and instead hurt their cause, as most of Palestine's Jews disavowed the organization, being horrified by the Irgun's brutality.
