[APH] JOIN ME WITH THIS RARESHIP by melonstyle [APH] JOIN ME WITH THIS RARESHIP by melonstyle
I don't care if it's OTP or BrOTP, just let it be known that oh my god Albania/Israel is one of my secret OC/OC ships in Hetalia. 8I

Now let me explain why you should join me with this duo:

1. They have history
2. They have great relations
3. Because I said so

No really, let me just spam some things about AlbIsra and why it is super special awesome:

:bulletred: Albania recognised Israel since 1949. They established relations in 1991 and maintain embassies in each other's country.

:bulletblue: Their History: Albania was the only European country occupied by the Axis powers of World War II that ended World War II with a larger Jewish population than before the War. Only one Jewish family was deported and killed during the Nazi occupation of Albania. Not only did the Albanians protect their own Jews, but they provided refuge for Jews from neighbouring countries. The Albanians refused to comply and hand over lists of Jews. Instead they provided the Jewish families with forged documents and helped them disperse in the Albanian population. Some 1,200 Jewish residents and refugees from other Balkan countries were hidden by Albanian families during World War II, according to official records. [source]

:bulletred: Israel was very grateful to Albania for what they had done, returning the favour in 1999 during the Kosovar War by providing Kosovar Albanian refugees with medical care, food and accommodation.

:bulletblue: There's an interesting speech made in regards to how Albania helped the Israeli Jews during the Holocaust. Here's a quote from the speech: As Apostol Kotani says in his recent book, The Hebrews of Albania During Centuries, "Sikur te kisha krahe e te fluteroja do te veja te puthja token Shqipetare qe me shpetoj jeten. / If I could have wings to fly, I would come to kiss the holy Albanian land which saved my life." 

:bulletred: lol, there's even a page on facebook dedicated to the two countries.

:bulletblue: there was someone who wrote a book as well, and the article relating to it is quite interesting too!

Some more articles!:

lol let's spam some pictures/photos:

so long story short, I think these two have a very interesting relationship and not many people know about it... so why not enlighten people? In fact, I'd love to discover more and more hidden connections that people often overlook. It's fascinating to know, ain't it? XD

Anyway, I know Melody's OTP is AmeIsra, but I also like the relationship of these two as well. So I simply OT3 it, mwahaha--//slapped (AmeIsBania? XD)

please tell me I managed to convert someone here--

Israel OC belongs to :iconanimangaluver-melody:

IKR? And besides, OC/OC ships need more love in APH fandom, okay. Some of them just make a heap of sense, moreso than some of the canon/oc or canon/canon ships out there--
