A small piece of land which was originally called Palestine, seeing as it was originally Palestinians land, not Jews (Israelis)
Oh and the Kebabs, and the rest of the Middle Eastern things dont come from Israel, it comes from Saudi and Syria, cos if you think about it Israelis are really Europeans after the second world war.

A legal and internationally recognized state created by the United Nations in 1948 as a result of the 1,878 year old documented history of extreme and senselss hatred against the Jewish people following the Roman destruction of their capital, Jerusalem, in 70 AD.
The purpose of modern day Israel is to protect and provide a home and safe-haven to Jewish people.

"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

A legitimate and legally recognized Jewish majority country that deserves to exist. The "ethnic cleansing of Palestinians" is by far a gross exaggeration. If Palestinians are being ethnically cleansed, why is their population continually growing. You would figure that if Israel wanted to ethnically cleanse them, they would have done so already. True, Israel's democracy is flawed but so is any other country in the world. Its amazing how a lot of people here have problems with Israel being a Jewish state but do not seem to mind the fact that there are 20 countries surrounding it who call themselves "Islamic Republics". Israel is NOT a racist or colonial state but is actually a multicultural country consisting of Druze, Sephards, Ashkenazi, Mizrahi, Yemen Jews, Circassians, Bedouins, Maronites, Copts, etc. 1.2 million Arabs live in Israel and serve in the Knesset. While there is discrimination, can you show me an Arab country where so many different and diverse groups are able to live together? Despite the frequent bashing it receives, Israel is not as bad as people make it out to be. Perhaps the idea of Jews having their own state irks some people, I don't know for sure. Legitimate criticism of Israel is necessary and needed, such as the settlements at the West Bank. However calling Israel an "illegal Zionist entity" and that Israelis are "fake Khazar Jew converts" does not constitute constructive criticism and constitutes thinly veiled anti-semitism.
Apparently its ok for Palestinians to conduct suicide bombing and rocket attacks against israel, but not vice versa. The Palestinians are the victims of their own leadership and are used as pawns by other Arab nations to advance their own agenda. If you read the Hamas covenant it states that "Today it is Palestine, tomorrow it will be one country or another. The Zionist plan is limitless. After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying." I find it hard to reason with people who have such a destructive agenda. If Hamas had the weapons that Israel had they would have wiped it out in no time. Israel, on the other hand, shows remarkable restraint, despite the constant barrage of criticism that they receive.

The Jewish people.
Hear O Israel, the LORD our G-d, the LORD is one.

Israel is located on the Meditteranean Sea. It is often in the Newspapers because of the controversy surrounding it. Here are the facts

* The modern zionist movement began with Herzl in the 1890s.
* Jews moved to Israel and bought crappy crappy swampland from Arabs, which they then irrigated and made nice
*In 1948, Israel declared independance. 5 Arab Armies attacked, vowing to push Israel into the sea. They failed, miserably.
*1956, See 1948 entry
*1967 War, aka 6 day War. Israel kicked some more ass, and succeeded in conquering the West Bank and the Golan Heights.
*1973 Egypt and Jordan attacked Israel on YOm Kippur the holiest of Jewish holidays, proving that they can't win a fair fight with Israel. They lost...again
*1982. Israel makes peace with Egypt, giving back the Sinai Peninsula.

Israel continues to have problems because Israeli Jews are blamed for evicting Arabs in 1948, when in faact the arabs left willingly because they were lief to by their leaders, who said "when we win, come back."
Also, Israeli Zionists bought the crappy crappy swampland from Arabs, they did not steal it.
Arab terrorists attack israeli civilians because they are weak and too afraid to take ont he IDF and the Mossad.
Israel has one of the most advanced armies in the world, and the Mossad could kick the CIA's ass anyday.
Lastly, Israeli citizens are largely responsible for most technologies, including cell phones, computer chips, and other wonderful wonderful things
I support Israel. It is a good country
All the terrorists suck. Israel could take them in a fair fight anyday.

I think i might make aliyah to Israel, a legitimate country, much like the US
