History of Israel
April 12th-April 16th 2008 Sometime in March, Jerusalem, Israel: Evil Tidings
In March of 2008, the Shah of Iran, Aryamehr, met with the-then-president of Israel, CyberStormAlpha. The Shah told Cyber to prepare for war with Turkey, and that Iran would be a friend of Israel during these tumultuous times. It took one month for hostilities to open up.
April 12 2008, Border of Haifa, Israel
On April 12, Turkish troops start firing upon the Israeli Defense Forces. Israel, unprepared and lacking in gold to fund mercenaries or their own soldiers, fell quickly to the Turkish onslaught. During the war, Israel gained international support, with nations sending soldiers to help Israel against it's Turkish foe. Iran also sent troops, when Aryamehr broke with his government and sent soldiers to the theater of war. However, it was not enough. Israel would not muster enough support, because the United States had started with it's invasion of Canada( the first major war of eRepublik), and Canada had been sent the brunt of the forces. The Turkish-Israel war was the first war on the Asian Continent.
Israeli Independence War
Febuary 18th-May 19th 2009 The Israeli Independence War, February 18-May 19
The Israeli Independence War was started due to Benn Dover, an influential member of Atlantis and one time president of the United States of America, appealing to Atlantis for the freedom of Israel. With Atlantis forces, Israel managed to free the Nazareth North District, as well as Beersheba and Haifa.

Three Day War And The Wipeout Plan
The 3 Day War
Israel had an open war with Turkey and her allies ever since Jmath attacked the Meditarranean Coast against the will of the people. Between that time and April 13, when the war began, Turkey had conquered Haifa, keeping it as a buffer and a watchful eye into Israeli territory. I was Minister of Defense while Turkey controlled Haifa, and every day I looked toward the territory, knowing an attack would come. It was not a question of if, but when. So at noon on April 13, my fears were answered. Turkey had attacked Tel Aviv and Nazareth North District.
Tel Aviv was won when the Turkish President retreated, but was quickly besieged when the Turkish President attacked again. I remember disputing the reasons for this, for why the Turkish president retreated, and I have come to the conclusion that it might have been a failed attempt at a certain initiative strategy. Franz Kafka, the President of Israel, quickly retreated Tel Aviv to focus on Nazareth, where the brunt of Israel's companies were located. The battle for Nazareth was won, as well as a Resistance war in Haifa. Greece also attacked the Tel Aviv Center District, while a resistance war was being waged. This tactic is known as "double dipping" and it is a strategy to regain initiative, or the ability to attack, for Israel. However, in this scenario, it was not used to regain initiative, as Israel already had it from winning the Nazareth North battle.
Franz Kafka attacked Tel Aviv, unsuccessfully. The final battle of the third day would decide who Tel Aviv went to. With minutes left in the battle, and the wall only at -100K, FK tanked the wall to keep it underground, doing nearly 30K damage.
The Wipeout Plan, June 2010
In June on 2010, Turkey attacked Israel again. The war was still opened because Israel had refused a peace treaty, one that had nearly ripped Israel in two, much like the Turkey MPP Crisis when BuzzyTheCat was president( next article for reference).Besieged, and asking for help from it's allies, Israel was becoming desperate. Sometime in June, it was agreed that Israel should proceed with what was known as "The Wipeout Plan". If the plan went along as planned, Turkey would conquer Israel, and Israel would then free itself with Resistance Wars, ending Turkey's MPPs stacked against them and the war that had been open since Jmath was President. Perfect.Knight, the president at that time, knew the risks, but also knew he must go along with it if Israel was to succeed. So, Turkey plowed through Israel, until finally coming to a stop at Jerusalem. Turkey needed to attack Beersheba, or Israel would be a dire situation. Perfect.Knight told me after the Wipeout Plan had succeeded..
" When Jerusalem was conquered, and we needed them to attack Beersheba, I made a bet with Battalgazi, that we would win the Beersheba battle. I put gold on it, too. I had to do it, because I had to make sure that they attacked Beersheba. If they didn't, we'd be in a very bad situation. A very bad one."
The Wipeout Plan did in fact succeed, and the war with Turkey was closed. Israel started five Resistance Wars simultaneously, eventually getting all of them back.
2011 Conflict in Saudi Arabia
March 5th - Ongoing 2011
Since the creation of the three arab countries in erepublik on January 19th, 2011, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and less so Egypt, have felt a sort of animosity towards Saudi Arabia, a new nation seemingly that in their eyes seemed to be elitist, controlled by admins, and protected from attack for a full month after its creation by forced Mutual Protection Pacts with all other nations in Erepublik. So, after the MPPs were declared null and void, Israel and The United Arab Emirates started to formulate plans against Saudi Arabia in order to reap the benefits of conquest. The Saudis, well aware of the upcoming invasion, cooperated with the less hostile Egyptian forces in order to keep their regions containing locations sacred to Islam in Arab hands.
So far, these are the regions that Israel is holding, that were once Saudi Arabian:
