WHAT IS THE ISRAELI SPACE AGENCY ALL ABOUT?
To most of the galaxy the might be the 3300s, but here at the Israeli Space Agency it is 7000s. The Israeli Space Agency is a group devoted to the continual development of a Jewish and Israeli lore within the Elite Dangerous universe as well as forging bonds and building networks between Israeli and Jewish players and the rest of the Milky Way Galaxy!
DO YOU HAVE A BACKSTORY/LORE?
The modern State of Israel transformed itself into a corporate ran government during Federal takeover of Earth. During this time the National Fund, a corporate real estate conglomerate purchased the remaining titles to 'Israel', but the land later became part of the Federation through force. Although the land deeds were never located by Federal officials. Directly following these events a number of Jews living in the Federation started looking towards other options as they felt that they could not live under Federal ruler and left to join the Empire on Achenar. Incensed by the Jewish efforts to assist in the formation of the Empire the Federation enacted the security measures on Earth so that the Sol system could only be accessed with a permit from the Pilots Federation creating what several Imperial Jews at the time called the Greater Diaspora which consists of the Jews living outside of Israel off of Earth and the Lesser Diaspora which are the Jews living outside of Israel on Earth. Israel and the Jewish community was now split between several ardent supporters of the Federation and supporters of the Empire. Often one side would blame the other for this or that restriction being set in place.
Several centuries later the people of Israel have started to reform as the first modern Nation after finding centuries old the deeds and titles from the National Fund which played a key role in establishing settlements for the Jewish people in the form of eleven spaceports which would later be incorporated into Imperial space and one key title to a small amount of land in the region of the Levant on Earth which has remained under Federation control.
The charge for freedom and nationhood is now being led by a group of Israelites who briefly took control of the backwater system of Botame claiming to be a "Maccabean Resistance" which the Pilots Federation has called the Botame Resistance. From there they networked through community ties to rekindle the flame that was their ancient nation and discovered that many of their number were being held in captivity as Imperial Slaves. Re-establishing themselves as the "Israeli Space Agency" they were finally recognized by the Pilot's Federation on the 6th of Tishrei 7065 or September 27th 3304 in the Botame system. Prior to being formally recognized they claimed to have brought the will of G-D down upon the mighty Empire which was visited by several plagues in their systems which hold Imperial Slaves in the Hebrew year 7064 or 3304. In turn the Empire has blamed them for acts of terrorism and inciting rebellion in the systems affected by outbreaks and famines or where slaves have escaped both in mass or individually. Meanwhile several Imperial patrons of the Empire had also begun to defect to the Israeli Space Agency having Jewish roots themselves or have found themselves being intensely questioned after evidence was leaked that Aisling Duval had been profiting from slavery in her providence; a report that was quickly obscured by the media.
Now is the time of Israel once again.
