"A land flowing with milk and honey..."
Shemot (Exodus) 3:8

Eretz Israel (Land of Israel) is a small, narrow, semi-arid piece of land on the southeastern coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. It entered history some 35 centuries ago when the Jewish people forsook their nomadic way of life, settled in the Land and became a nation. Over the years, the Land was known by many names - Eretz Israel; Zion, one of Jerusalem's hills which came to signify both the city and the Land of Israel as a whole; Palestine, derived from Philistia, and first used by the Romans; the Promised Land; and the Holy Land, to mention but a few. Mountains and plains, fertile fields and deserts are often minutes apart.
Now Israel, listen to the rules and laws that I am teaching you to do, so that you will remain alive and come to occupy the land that G-d, Lord of your fathers, is giving you."
Dvarim (Deuteronomy) 4:1

Unlike Hezbollah, Hamas is a Sunni organization controlled by the Palestinians. Even though Hamas is Sunni, while the Iranian leadership is Shiite, Iran supports Hamas on the theory "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." Hamas owes its origin to the Muslim Brotherhood, a group formed in Egypt in the 1920s with the goal of establishing a "pure" Islamic state. Hamas was officially formed on December 8, 1987, coinciding with the outbreak of the first intifada against Israel. Hamas is an Islamic jihadist organization that operates primarily in the Gaza Strip and other Palestinian controlled territories.
