"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
The State of the Jewish people. Country in the Middle East surrounded by countries that hate them. Israel tries to make peace with its' neighbours, who just attack Israel instead of making an effort to make peace as well. Israel does not depend on America. Israel has no interest in killing Palestinians or Arab. When Israel drops a bomb on a neighbouring country, it is to blow up a building holding weapon's so Israel doesn't get attacked more. Israeli planes drop flyers telling people to go into shelter before dropping bombs. Israel is a country that is hated by most media. Propaganda lies are made to get everyone to think Israel kills Palestinian children and adults for no reason, although Palestinians kill their own citizens more than the Israelis do.
A ton of missiles were fired at Israel today.
A small Jewish state in the middle east that drives anti-semites insane... especially middle class honky commies and fascists in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand who hide behind the so-called "Palestinians" ( actually Egyptian and Jordanian squatters and Arab gypsy outcasts)to camouflage their rabid but impotent anti-Jewish rage. The so-called "Palestinians" are also a cause celebre among Arab grievance pimps worldwide despite the fact that Arab cuntries treat the so-called "Palestinians" far worse than the Israelis could ever imagine doing.
Israel is a nice country that is located in a very bad neighborhood. Sometimes they have to take matters into their own hands and break some heads in order to survive. The rest of the world hates that fact because Jews aren't supposed to fight back.
