Israel is a civ in the Civ Battle Royale. It's original capital was Jerusalem, it's current capital is Gaza. It was eliminated in 47th place by Armenia in a heroic if futile last stand, but has since been revived (and made me screw up some of the wiki pages). It is lead by King David.
Israel was the first civilization to found a religion (Judaism). For the majority of the CBR Judaism was the largest religion in both cities and followers; it is still a close second behind Catholicism.
