Israeli Empire by DaneOfScandinavy Israeli Empire by DaneOfScandinavy

Formation and expansion of the IPFU (2015-22):


Formation:

In 2015, Israel has de facto control over all of Palestine, which it overtook through warfare and continued creation of settlements, among other things. Israel also controls the Golan Heights, which was overtaken in the midst of the chaos in Syria. Islamic State continues to wreak havoc in Iraq and Syria as the conflict spills into Jordan and Saudi Arabia, something that is seen by Israel as a grave threat to its national security. Later in the year, a multinational coalition is formed in opposition to IS, consisting of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Egypt, Iran, Israel, the United States, the United Kingdom and France, temporarily halting disputes between its members, and IS, al-Nusra and other groups are pushed out of most larger cities and deeper into Iraq and Syria. In Iraq, the Kurdish region achieves independence, and parts of eastern Iraq are annexed by Iran, while in Syria things take a dramatic turn as Assad's regime is disposed and the military takes power instead. The new leader of Syria is more stability-minded than his predecessor, and he enters a peace treaty with the Free Syrian Army, ending the conflict. 

In late 2017, the Israeli-Palestinian Federal Union (IPFU) is formed, consisting of Israel (including Palestine and the Golan Heights), Lebanon and Jordan each maintaining its own governmental system, as well as the Sinai Peninsula, which was ceded by Egypt following an extended peace treaty. Jerusalem is made the federal capital. Hope of peace in the region starts to grow with the creation of this federal state, the rise of Turkey as a major power, and the beginning democratization of Iranian society. Mossad continues to exist as the national intelligence agency of the IPFU, and the military forces of the former countries are merged together, but there is a general over-representation of Jews and Christians. Upon the formation of the IPFU, the so-called Federal Transition Government (FTG) temporarily takes power, and the first democratic election is held in early 2018, with a new election being held every 5 years.

Annexation of Syria and demographics
:
In 2022, upon an agreement with Turkey, the military leadership of Syria and the population, most of Syria, as well as Hatay, joins the IPFU, while the rest joins Turkey. A united Levant state has now been created. The ethno-religious composition of the IPFU is different from that of the former independent countries. Overall, Sunni Arabs form the majority, but there are also very large numbers of Jews/Israelis and Christian Arabs, while Shia Arabs constitute a smaller minority. In recent years, Judaism and Christianity have gathered more and more followers, mainly due to the massive campaigns by Jewish and Christian organizations. Islam, on the other hand, has not managed to do this, and thus the percentage of Muslims is falling. There is also a rising birth rate among the more Orthodox Jews, and large groups of foreign Jews and Christians have migrated to the IPFU, whereas many Muslims have moved out or, as some speculate, been driven out. Additionally, the Israelis have created large settlements, however legal, all around Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Sinai, thus spreading out their population. Today, Israel, Sinai and the “East Bank” are dominated by Jews/Israelis, while Lebanon and large parts of Syria are dominated by Christians, and the rest of Syria and Jordan are dominated by Sunni Arabs. Now and then, a little unrest and violence erupts in the state, but the belief in peace is still there. Meanwhile, the Arab oil states, as well as Yemen and (South) Iraq, come together to form the United Arab Kingdom under the rule of the Saudi king.

Great Middle Eastern Wars (2028-35):


Rising tensions
:
The 2028 federal election ends with a major victory for Jewish and Christian politicians, and a Jewish-Christian coalition government is formed. The new president and PM are both from Israel, and there is only one Muslim minister in the new government, causing dissatisfaction among Muslims. Corruption and lobbyism was prevalent at the election, and political watchdogs criticize the democratic process. Throughout the year, the new government passes laws differentiating between ethnoreligious groups, and Muslims are generally lower on the social ladder than their Jewish and Christian counterparts.

By the start of 2029, Muslims form a (narrow) plurality in the IPFU, but the Jewish and Christian denominations are now so large that they together form a majority of the population. Israel, Sinai, Jordan and parts of Southern Syria are dominated by Jews, while Lebanon and parts of Southern and Western Syria are dominated by Christians, and the rest of Syria (central, north and east) is dominated by Muslims. In the last year, tensions have gone up and violence increased, causing serious doubt whether the peace will last. These tensions are mainly caused by the result of the 2028 federal election and the actions of the new Jewish-Christian government. People have also started using the term “Israeli Empire” as a synonym for the IPFU.

Beginning of the war
:
In mid-2029, an unknown group of Islamic terrorists targets the Christian-dominated city of Damascus, killing 114 civilians and 3 police officers. Upon investigation by Mossad, it is revealed that the group has been trained in the United Arab Kingdom (UAK) and has received funding from the government. The Armed Forces of the IPFU launches a bombing campaign in the area where the terrorist camps are allegedly located, causing the death of at least 23 people. The UAK, having denied any claims of involvement in the terrorist attack, considers what the IPFU has done a declaration of war. The world is shocked by the dramatic events, and Turkey urges the other countries in the Middle East to try not to further escalate the situation. Turkey is, at this point, the closest ally of the IPFU in the region, but their bonds are slowly breaking.  Iran and Egypt both give a more hostile reaction and blame the IPFU for “shattering peace and stability” in the region, and Russia and the Western countries express serious concern.

In early 2030, the Great Middle Eastern War officially breaks out between the IPFU on one side, and the UAK on the other. Iran and Egypt, despite strongly speaking against the IPFU, both stay out of the war, and so does a worried Turkey. The IPFU pours troops into the deserted Iraq region and rushes forward with superior technology, leaving the UAK forces unable to fend off the foreigners. The UAK fires missiles towards major cities in the country, such as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Beirut and Damascus, and in these cities, terrorist attacks also start to become increasingly frequent. A pro-UAK group emerges in Syria, described by Mossad as terrorists, and areas of Syria start to become targets of IPFU air strikes, "coincidentally" leading to the death of hundreds of Muslim civilians. Western leaders begin to speak out against the IPFU, as does Russia in stronger terms.

By mid-2031, the IPFU forces have reached the Persian Gulf coast and the Euphrates River, and are in full control of the UAK borders with Iran and Turkey. By the end of the year, a new border has been drawn up by the IPFU government, expanding the federation to include a large part of the northern UAK, including all of Iraq and former Kuwait. An Orthodox Zionist group from Israel declares that “Yahweh’s wish of Eretz Israel has come true”. The IPFU government refuses to comment on the resulting accusations of “Zionist imperialism”. Now, a stalemate-like situation is reached in the northern Arab Peninsula as fighting takes place entirely in the hot, dry Arabian desert, and neither side is making major incisions into one another.

Egyptian intervention:
In early 2032, Egypt makes a massive mobilization of its troops at the border of the IPFU-controlled Sinai Peninsula, formerly Egyptian territory. After a month of rising tensions, Egypt officially declares war on the IPFU, and launches an invasion of Sinai while carrying out missile attacks and air strikes throughout the country. The IPFU deploys thousands of troops to the already well-guarded Sinai Peninsula, and orders them to enter Egypt and head for Cairo. At the same time, a large-scale bombing campaign is launched, targeting important sites throughout the country. Egypt is a great military power, and the Battles of Cairo and Alexandria are long and exhausting for both sides. In mid-2023, the IPFU declares victory in Cairo as the Egyptian Army is ordered to leave the city and the government relocates to another city. The IPFU troops now head south, and as year 2033 begins, the IPFU has captured all of Egypt east of the River Nile, and the rest of Egypt is in shambles as water supply is cut off. This move is condemned by humanitarian organizations and prominent Western leaders, and Egypt manages to receive water from its southern ally of Sudan, and receives humanitarian aid from the international community. 

Ending of the war:
In early 2033, at the federal election, the Jewish-Christian coalition wins another 5 years in power, but the new PM, the head of government, is much more Orthodox and nationalistic. This very year, the name of the IPFU is officially changed to the Israeli Empire, thus confirming all previous accusations of “Zionist imperialism”. By now, Muslims are effectively a minority. During this year, the Israeli forces cross the River Nile and continue the invasion of Egypt, eventually forcing the country to surrender.
Upon capture of these areas, the Israeli Empire drives out many Muslims from the occupied part of Egypt, whereas Coptic Christians are allowed to stay and not be harmed by Israeli forces. At this point, many Western countries and Russia start supplying arms to anti-Israeli groups. In the northern Arab Peninsula, the Israeli Empire makes progress and has managed to block several supply routes for the UAK forces. The stalemate is effectively over, and the war rages on. By the beginning of year 2034, the Israeli Empire has captured large parts of the northern UAK, and a new border is drawn up. With the threat of a nuclear attack in Riyadh, the UAK surrenders. The Great Middle Eastern War has ended, but the end result is strongly condemned by the international community, and Israel faces harsh sanctions as a result, becoming isolated from its former allies, including the US, although the arms industry and many Republicans push for supporting Israel instead.

Tigris War:
In early 2034, the most Orthodox groups in the Israeli Empire dream of extending the empire all the way to the Tigris River, and controversial statements by government officials dramatically raise tensions with Iran and Turkey. The Tigris War, also called the Second Great Middle Eastern War, breaks out with the Israeli Empire on one side, and Iran, Turkey, the UAK, the countries of Central Asia, and various terrorist groups on the other. The anti-Israeli coalition is also assisted by the West and Russia, who supply arms and increase sanctions against Israel. Although the force faced by Israel is greater than ever before, the country does not hesitate to fulfil its dream. The country suffers major damage on its infrastructure and war machine during the long and exhausting conflict, but nevertheless, by late 2035, the Israeli forces have reached the Tigris River. Months later, Israel declares that its ultimate goal of capturing “the land assigned to us by Yahweh” has been reached, and that it has no desire to make further conquests. In late 2035, a treaty to end the war is signed in Geneva, Switzerland by the belligerents, but not a single country recognizes the new borders of Israel. The international community pushes for Israel to give up all land it took in the Great Middle Eastern Wars, but they refuse.

So many Arab world problems would be solved this way. No more drive-by's, gender equality, basic human rights and so on. Probably later granting independence including to the minority groups who were seeking this for many centuries ignored by the British. New borders that will be created, which will actually make sense, unlike what the British made.

But yeah, this is so far from reality. After 1974 Israel was shrinking (1974 and not 1967 for being able to hold it) and while it might sound good or bad to whatever point of view you hold, there is a reason for that. Holding more territory in such large scale as you drew means holding greater responsibility, and risking people's life for that is far from Israel's interests not to mention that economically it cannot hold such large area. (I suspect the middle east will run out of gas eventually, making it even harder to keep it)

Not to mention that historically Israel avoided getting into such situation in the first place, and it would rather support other groups to fight for themselfs. (Yet last time due to peace talks Israel pretty much abounded them when evacuating resulting in their death)

UN Committee on the Rights of the Child:
"Palestinian children arrested by (Israeli) military and police are systematically subject to degrading treatment, and often to acts of torture, are interrogated in Hebrew, a language they did not understand, and sign confessions in Hebrew in order to be released"

Palestinian children are often held in solitary confinement, sometimes for months, some of these children are as young as only 9.

Almost all of those IDF soldiers who have used children as human shields and informants have remained unpunished. Even the soldiers convicted for having forced at gunpoint a nine-year-old child to check bags for explosives were merely demoted and given extremely light “punishment” when their actions were exposed in the media. It was only because their actions were exposed to international public that any punishment occurred at all.

The nasty xenophobic bloodthirsty behaviour of many Israelis isn't something that should be defended either.

I noticed a glaring lack of evidence of any 9 year old terrorists. That apparently hasn't prevented the Israeli government from putting kids as young as that into solitary confinement or torturing 12 year olds. A lot of kids get raped and tortured in Israel's prisons. It shouldn't be surprising that kids treated that way, and an entire people treated that way for decades are going to try any method possible to fight back. You reap what you sow.

I haven't posted any links to a "pro-jihad" site, I suspect that you only say that because you're motivated to ignore any evidence which contradicts the Israeli government propaganda. The video evidence of Israeli soldiers behaving like racist bloodthirsty loonies is rather damning of the IDF anyway.

Have you ever read of the Lavon Affair? A campaign of terror carried out by the Israelis, blowing up people in Egypt, and trying to blame Muslims for the terrorism. Zionist terrorists did the same in Iraq too, in order to terrorise Jews in Iraq, blaming Muslims for it. That's not "conspiracy" theory, it is historical fact. The problem is that such actions raise serious doubts about the credibility of "teenage suicide bombers" and could make one wonder if those teenagers weren't forced into this, not only against their will, but even the so-called "Muslim" militants were in fact sponsored by Israel and working as collaborators to instigate more terror. Those terrorists being sponsored by Israel, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia in a (so far failed) attempt to topple the Syrian government are a case in point.

Like the USA and UK, the credibility of Israel's government claims has become very, very, very low. I also wouldn't trust the BBC any further than I would trust Al Jazeera. Many British citizens refer to the BBC as the "British Bullshit Corporation". They lie so much, and so often. Back in 2003, they lied about the taking of Basra airport so frequently it became a joke in parliament. They continue to lie intentionally long after their lies were exposed. Their biased reporting of what was happening in Northern Ireland was notoriously bad propaganda even forty years ago.

Israel will probably collapse on it's own and disappear since the nation is almost entirely reliant on the USA's billions of dollars and gifts of military equipment. When the USA goes down, as it's been doing for awhile now, weakening every year, and near bankrupt, Israel will be left on their own resources. They don't have an economy which can survive on it's own, and they've made way too many people angry at Zionist actions over the past several decades. If they're fortunate, they'll become like South Africa and a lot less racist, a lot more tolerant. I don't believe that they'll be that lucky though.

I know this doesn't fully answer where they all come from, but "Judaism and Christianity have gathered more and more followers, mainly due to the massive campaign by the Jewish and Christian organizations, but also due to increased birth rate among more Orthodox citizens. Islam, on the other hand, has not managed to do the same, and thus the percentage of Muslims is falling. Additionally, the Israelis have created large settlements (however legal) all around former Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Sinai." Perhaps you could say that a lot of Christians and Jews migrated there, whereas many Muslims moved out.
