** Israel is also the home to some of the smaller Jewish cultural groups who are now rarely seen anywhere else, most notably the Beta Israel (Ethiopian Jews), almost all of whom have mass-immigrated to Israel, and the B'nei Menashe and Cochin Jews (Indian Jews), who are immigrating in a fairly steady stream. More recently, a number of Chinese Jews, descended from those who settled in Kaifeng area in 12th-13th centuries, have joined immigrants to Israel.

World War II and the Holocaust resulted in the murder of two-thirds of the Jews in Europe, and the utter extermination of nearly every Jewish community which had sheltered Ashkenazi Jews for centuries. Now Zionism, once seen as a pointless pipe dream by many European Jews, seemed to be an utmost necessity to survive.

During the War, Britain had persisted in trying to keep tensions to a minimum by minimizing the influx of Jews to Palestine, especially now that this had become a major ideological issue for many soon-to-be Muslim states-states which, being only recently made colonies of Allied powers, could easily be persuaded to make common cause with the Axis should they be provoked. However, this then caused active Jewish resistance to British rule, either by way of illegally bringing more Jews into Palestine, or actively attacking British soldiers and officials ([[InsaneTrollLogic with some like the Lehi having started attacking British soldiers and bases during UsefulNotes/WW2, even attempting to ally with Hitler to drive the British out.]][[labelnote:*]]This is not as insane as it initially seems. First, Jewish and Zionist organizations ran the political gamut. Some of the more violent organizations were openly fascistic, including the Lehi. Second, Nazi antisemitic policy changed a lot before the FinalSolution became the official plan in 1942. Initially, Hitler wanted to ''deport'' all of the Jews in Germany and later Europe, a position to which the Zionists were actually somewhat amenable, since the displaced Jews could then settle in Palestine. This led to something of a detente, with Hitler essentially "selling" Jews to the Zionists (financed by the unbelievably wealthy Rothschilds), the Zionists resettling them in Palestine, and the Rothschilds providing economic support to the settlers. It worked fairly well for a while, with some 60,000 Jews escaping to Palestine in this manner. In this context, certain right-wing Jewish militant organizations attempting to align with Hitler against the British seems considerably less absurd.[[/labelnote]]) This developed into a rather brutal guerrilla war, with the expected atrocities committed by both Jewish insurgents and British troops in retaliation, further dividing the Jewish immigrants and Britain.

In terms of the modern Jewish history in the area, there has always been a small Jewish presence in the area that is modern-day Israel (centered around the Four Holy Cities: Jerusalem, Hebron, Safed, and Tiberias) since the various Biblical upheavals that destroyed several Jewish kingdoms (Babylonians, Assyrians, Romans, etc.) and scattered its population across Europe, Asia, and Africa. However in the mid 19th century, after centuries of antisemetic persecution and pogroms throughout Europe (but particularly the Russian Empire), a Jewish movement called Zionism steadily evolved with the aim of ensuring the Jewish people would have a homeland where they could be protected from the anti-semtic violence and discrimination.

* ElephantInTheRoom: The ArabIsraeliConflict.
* HeroWithBadPublicity / VillainWithGoodPublicity: A lot of the buzz surrounding the ArabIsraeliConflict pertains to exactly which of these Israel is, if any or both. News coverage would have you believe that the Israeli government doesn't give two figs what the rest of the world thinks about its behavior, but within the Israeli public and media a popular sport is obsessing over exactly this.

* WarRefugees: All over the place: Zionist organizations in Europe tried to help Jews fleeing during World War II get to Palestine, which was hampered by the British. After the War a significant amount of Holocaust survivors either did not want to go back to their former homes or could not go back (thanks to their non-Jewish neighbors using the Holocaust as an opportunity to take their property, then killing those who tried to get it back), and so they also moved to Palestine (against the wishes of the British and the local Arab population). After the first stage of the ArabIsraeliConflict Israel received a huge influx of Jews from Middle Eastern countries who were either expelled or fleeing from retaliation. Then of course you have Palestinian refugees, who still exist all over.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In 1919, Prince Faisal (leader of the Arab Revolt) and Chaim Weizmann (leader of the British Zionist Organization) made an agreement that would likely have led to the Jews receiving a state with the blessing of the Arabs. Had the agreement not fallen through, it could have aborted the entire ArabIsraeliConflict.
