This site, sponsored by the Israel Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, contains a nice timeline for the history of Israel, back to
Biblical times. Click on the logo above to go there.
This site has links to news articles that contain information useful especially for students playing Israel. It also has a search engine that searches the Maccabean Online Archives, which contains political analysis and commentary on Israeli and Jewish affairs.
It provides many useful resources that can help most AICers find helpful
information no matter what country they are playing. This is a heavily
pro-Israel site, and I have used some of it in messages. In summary, this site
is a haven for people who need good research fast.
This is an informative web site for anyone who is playing Israel. As the name implies, Facts of Israel is a site that has facts about Israel. You can find almost any information here. They have maps, the history of the region, statistics about suicide bomber casualties and the like, and many other informative tools.
I used this site in my messages a lot. If you have some hard research and
statistics, the other players in the simulation tend to respect you a lot more
and pay more attention to what you have to say. In summary, this web site is a
great for anyone who needs good, solid facts about Israel.
The following two sites are especially useful if you are playing the Israel
right Minister of Defense.
This is the Israeli Defense forces web-site in English (click the English tab
on the front page). It contains statistics, daily events, organization, history,
and much more useful information about Israel and its military. It also has
daily updated news that provides real and reliable information into the
operations that Israel takes out almost every day.

Gush Shalom (Translated from Hebrew, the name means
"The Peace Bloc")
Often described as "resolute", "militant", "radical" or "consistent", it is known for its unwavering stand in times of crisis, such as the al-Aksa intifada.
For years now, Gush Shalom has played a leading role in determining the moral and political agenda of the peace forces in Israel, as well as in breaking the so-called "national consensus" based on misinformation.
