** Jacob, [[MeaningfulRename had his name changed]] to [[MeaningfulName “Israel”]], meaning “Wrestles with {{God}}”, after doing [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly that]]. From night till daybreak. [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu To a stalemate]]. [[EarnYourTitle And didn't release his submission hold until he got a blessing]] (and after God moved Jacob's sciatic nerve an inch or two). Arguably makes him the TropeCodifier and UrExample, by virtue of being the very first Israeli. Hell, as we just explained above, [[IAmTheNoun he]] ''[[IAmTheNoun was]]'' {{I|AmTheNoun}}srael.

* Subverted, if not outright averted in ''TheSalvationWar'', as the author has a far more negative view of the Israeli military qualitatively (not morally): an Israeli helicopter raid to take the Minos Gate is successful (though with unfortunate collateral damage), but he Israeli army is regarded by other countries' armies as brave to a fault but reckless (with both driving and fire discipline), and the Israeli Navy is outright ''dangerously'' incompetent. Basically all the badassery isn't worth a damn when that attitude led to, in trying to avoid [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Rear-Echelon Motherfuckers (REMFs)]], getting rid of the ethic needed for seemingly "unmanly" staff work... like ''keeping track of your own nuclear submarine''!

* Epraim Katz, an elderly Mossad agent who also fought in the XV international brigade, teams up with his old comrades in ''ComicBook/TheBlackOrderBrigade'' to fight a band of old fascists from the UsefulNotes/SpanishCivilWar. Katz has survived the holocaust, after losing an eye in the civil war, and after that, he has been working with the Mossad. He survives the whole storyline until he is taken down by gunfire from the fascists at the end of the book. Doubles as a BadassGrandpa along with the rest of the main characters.

* Discussed throughout an entire chapter of {{Fables}}, in which Bigby Wolf talks at some length about how he admires Israel's tenacity and "grit" in a world that's aiming to destroy it.

** Ziva David, who is so badass that Gibbs has to remind her to slash the FBI's ''tires'', not their ''throats''. Heck, when she's left out of missions, it's for the ''suspect's'' safety, not hers.

* Actress Gal Gadot's main acting credit has been her role as Gisele Yashar in the Fast and Furious franchise. When she was announced as being the first actress to play Wonder Woman on the big screen, the reaction was overwhelmingly, vehemently negative due to her thin frame, with accusations thrown at WB and DC Comics for wanting an unhealthy model rather than a "real woman." Those people likely did not know that while she is a model, Gadot performed all her own stunts in Fast and Furious, received military training as part of her mandatory two years of service in the IDF, was a fitness trainer for said military, can handle guns and in addition to the martial arts she already knows, immediately began training in jiu-jitsu, caperoia and sword fighting. Also, she attributed her training as a main reason why she landed her role in FnF, a stunt-heavy franchise.

** Gadot is not only a model and actress, she received military training as part of her mandatory 2 years of service in the IDF. She attributes her gun training and willingness to perform her own stunts to why she was chosen for the Fast and Furious franchise and is currently lined up to play Wonder Woman.
