  4. WI: No Israel

    The point of divergence cannot be before 1900 but can extend until the 1973 War. What if Israel ceased to exist?

    While researching something on the Six Day wars, I stumbled upon an illustration of several proposed Jewish states/possible alternate history Israels, and that led to a rabbit hole of proposed Jewish states throughout history. There were so many variations of the idea of giving the Jews their...

    AHC/WI: Pro-Soviet Israel?

    With a PoD anywhere between 1947 and 1973, how can we make up a scenario in which the Soviet Union (and by extension her satellite states) agrees to an alliance of convenience with Israel? What sort of ramifications would this incur? What would happen to Soviet relations with the Arab states...
