    Was it possible for Arab nationalism to "win" and Israel to survive?

    I was reading about political Islam, and it was said in a few places that it grew out of the defeat of secular Arab nationalism against Israel.

  13. WI: No Israel

    The point of divergence cannot be before 1900 but can extend until the 1973 War. What if Israel ceased to exist? It can be done before it’s creation (ie no Balfour Declaration) or after its creation (losing any of the 1948, 1967, or 1973 wars). The only contingency is that the Holocaust cannot...

    WI: A Hashemite Kingdom of Israel?

    Say, for the sake of argument, the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faisal%E2%80%93Weizmann_Agreement) went a bit differently, and the Knesset voted to elect Faisal of Iraq and Syria to be King of Israel. How would this work? Could an Austro-Hungarian-style dual monarchy...
