Christians in Israel
Israel is one of the most unique countries in the world because of its demographic makeup, especially in looking at the country from the perspective of an American. This is because it is the only country that is made up of a primarily Jewish population. In Israel, it is the Christians who are the minority. It is specifically these minority Christians that I am investigating in this paper. I will primarily answer the question, “Who are these Christians living in Israel?” I will examine this by looking into what specific denominations these Christians represent, what historical backgrounds they have living in the country of Israel, and how their culture meshes with that

Israel is perhaps the most fascinating, intriguing and complex country in the world. Geographically tiny, the country’s social, historical, economic and geographical matrix represents a singular association of contrasting attributes unique among the world’s nations and cultures. Snow covered mountains and tropical sea resorts, technology hotbeds and Byzantine churches, socialist-style settlements and free market corporations, Ethiopian traditions and Polish cuisines, BMW's and camels all exist together in a bustling, hyper-energetic, egalitarian, extroverted and impassioned caldron a mere 262 miles

Israelis and Arabs apart once again.
Since the founding of Israel in 1948, there has been continuous conflict between Israel and the Arab states. This conflict has been marked by six bloody wars. In 1867, during the six-day war of Syria, Jordan and Egypt, Israel captured the West Bank, Sinai and the Gaza strip. Subsequently, a population of over a million Palestinian Arabs, together with their land was now under Israeli control. (Spencer, p.70) It was during this time that a Palestinian leader emerged, Yasser Arafat. Labeled a terrorist by Israel and the United States, he and his Palestine Liberation Organization called for the eviction of Israel from the occupied territories by

Medinat Israel better known as Israel declared its independence from Palestine on May 14, 1948, three years after the end of the Holocaust and World War II. It was created as result of the Zionist movement, which was founded in Switzerland during 1897 by Theodor Herzl. Zionism was created to unite Jewish people of exile and settle them in Palestine. The movement's name derived from Zion, the hill on which the Temple of Jerusalem was located. Many of Israeli's political institutions and beliefs came from the concepts of the Zionist movement.The population of Jews in Palestine greatly increased from the end of the 19th century to the early part of the 20th century (from 12,000 to 85,000

Jerusalem, one the world's oldest and holiest cities, was in December 1949 proclaimed by the state of Israel to be its capital. The city plays a central role in the spiritual and emotional perspective of the three major monotheistic religions. For Jews throughout the world, Jerusalem is the focus of age-old yearnings, a living proof of ancient grandeur and independence and a center of national renaissance; for Christians, it is the scene of their Saviour's agony; for Muslims, it is the goal of the prophet Muhammad's mystic night journey and the site of Islam's most sacred shrines. For all three faiths it is a center of pilgrimage- the Holy City, the earthly prototype of the heavenly

The United States and Israel
Many people think that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict dates back to several centuries ago, but in truth, the conflict began with the creation of Israel in 1948. Tensions first arose between Jewish people and Palestinians after World War II, after many Jewish people immigrated to Palestine. The Palestinian people consisted of more than one faith, including a majority of Muslims and some Christians as well. Palestinians wanted the Jews to live in Palestine as a minority, however Zionist organizations wanted at least a partition to be approved by the U.N. General Assembly. The idea of a Jewish state became relevant to the United States in the 1940s

August 23, 1929, a riot erupts in Hebron, Israel. Arab rioters brutally murder sixty seven Jews, many of which are dismembered at the neck. Many incidents of rape are also reported. Jewish homes are burned to the ground. This is the first known and documented terrorist attack on Israel in this century. Since that day there have been more than 1500 separate attacks against the Israelis. The reason that certain Arabs are acting this way, especially to Israel, is their belief in Jihad also known as the Holy War. According to scholar John Esposito, Jihad requires Muslims to "struggle in the way of God" or "to struggle to improve one's self and/or society (93)." Jihad is directed against Satanâ

ARAB STATES DECLARE WAR AGAINST ISRAEL
The conflict between Arabs and Jews in the Middle East was over land of historic Israel and Palestine. The conflict has led to several wars, beginning in 1948, among Arab nations, Palestinian refugees, and the state of Israel. Since 1979 several peace accords have been signed, addressing parts of the conflict. The area is the homeland of the Jewish people, who immigrated to the area beginning in the 13th century BC as Hebrew tribes. The tribes confederated as the Israelites who ruled much of the area from the 11th century to the 6th century BC. The Jews formed an identity as the people of the covenant but subsequently came under the rule of others

The people were united and fear of domination by another was no longer of consequence at least for the time being. Sadly, in spite of the love, kindness and grace displayed by God to His people, the Israelites continued their cyclical living with periods of obedience followed by periods of failure.

The beginning of the monarchs of Israel caused much controversy. Because the Israelites were conducting outside of God’s will, they encountered many hardships. When Israel desired a king in the time of Samuel, Saul was initially chosen for king, but David became succeeded him, while Solomon committed a sin that ultimately led to the division of Israel.
Israel’s desire for a king
Until Samuel got old and did not have a son to lead, Israel operated as a Theocracy, following God and His Law, but Israel desired to be like other nations. In 1 Samuel 8:5, the elders of Israel discussed their displeasure with Samuel, and they not only expressed their distrust in

During the time of the judges, the land was full of corruption and sin. There was no king or legal authority in Israel and the people acted on what they thought was right and wrong. “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25). Samuel was Israel’s spiritual leader (priest), a prophet, and the last and most effective of the judges. God used Samuel to assist in the change of Israel’s government from a system of judges to kings.
Samuel judged Israel until his death, saved them from the Philistines, and led them back to God. However, when Samuel grew old, he started appointing his sons as judges but they were

God had a plan for Israel, but the people had decided that God’s way was not efficient enough and that they knew how to govern themselves more efficiently.
Saul was everything the Israelites could have wanted in a king; he was tall, good looking, and would triumph in many battles. When Saul first became king he followed God’s commands and gave all the glory to Him, but as time passed he began to lose sight of God’s divine purpose. After being king for some time Saul became greedy and was overcome by pride. Ultimately it was

He told Hosea to go after his wife who was fornicating around and to forgive her and take her back.

As I have explored through this project, certain territories are strategically important for Israel to keep. For instance, it would be moronic to give the Palestinians a high and strategic place like the Golan Heights. Furthermore, places like Jerusalem are of historic significance to the Jews. In fact, it would be impractical to give up Jerusalem in general. Certain territories are too logistically difficult to give up and to dismantle their populations would be a nightmare.
For Israel, relinquishing the Golan to a hostile Syria could jeopardize its early-warning system against surprise attacks. Israel has built radars on Mt. Hermon, the highest point in the region. If Israel withdrew

God calls his people to obedient. In return for obedience, God promises to provide. During the time of Solomon the people of Israel lacked obedience. God as king was no longer good enough. Israel’s lack of obedience caused them to anoint a king that also lacked faith in the Lord. Man is broken and even great leaders have flaws. Israel’s demand for a king ultimately resulted in the division of the kingdom.
During the time of Samuel, the people of Israel desire a king. God had promised to provide for the Israelites and in return God asked for obedience and love. Throughout the Old Testament God always provided for the

Saul reigned as king over Israel from about 1050-1011. During this time, the prophet Samuel was Gods mouthpiece. The people of Israel desired a king who could fight their battles against the aggressive tactics of the Philistines. Also, they routinely blamed its shortcomings on the lack of proper leadership; a monarchy comprised of a king (Judges, 17:6; 18:1; 19:1; 21:25). These passages in the book Judges, reveals that Israel could never fulfill their divinely intended design, as long as it was under the Judges rule.

Historically, world Jewry has experienced humiliation, persecution and at times decimation. Rejecting the Jews is best illustrated by observing Jewry under the most powerful and merciless of empires.

Due to its geopolitical disadvantage, Israel must utilize aggressive and resilient tactics against terror groups, state, and non-state actors. Are targeted killings a necessary resort?

Judaism has existed for millennia, and has been riddled with violence and war at many points throughout its history. From the purging of the holy land to make way for the Israelites to recent attacks on Arabs in Israel. There are many modern day sentiments among right wing Jews to take back the Holy Land promised to them by God in the Bible. Many people who hold these thoughts justify violence as a means to take back the land of Israel. In this essay, I will explain why and how these right-wing Jews justify their use of violence against the so-called invaders of the true Israel.To understand why some Jews feel it is their duty to take back Israel, and if need be by way of violence, we must

The Arab-Israeli Conflict: Turmoil in the Middle East
While the Arab-Israeli conflict significantly influences contemporary foreign policy, tensions began early in the 20th century. Although the region is spiritually diverse, the main conflict is defining land allowing both parties to agree on established land boundaries. Prior to 1948, both groups claimed Palestine, but after the war of 1948 the international community divided this area into three parts. These include the state of Israel, the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

The Role of Judges in Israel
The book of Judges deals with that period in Israel’s history when God used “judges” to provide leadership at crucial moments prior to the time of the kings. The judges were not political rulers. They could not tax people, keep a standing army or pass on their authority to their descendants. Their role was not related to any moral or spiritual qualification. These men and women were raised up at unique times to bring about liberation for some or all of the tribes of Israel. They were the means by which God was able to

individual when he refers to a servant selected by God to carry out his orders and “bring forth justice to the nations” (NRSV p. 1023). However, after listening to the commentaries and reading the entire book of Isaiah it is obvious that he is referring to the entire nation of Israel. If one is to read just the little excerpt it is easy to see how people can misinterpret passages of the bible. It is definitely recommended to view what you are looking at in the context it was intended to be viewed before making judgments.

The Chained Women: When Religion and the State Intersect
When Israel was conceived as a Jewish state, questions arose over the division between the religious and the secular. Judaism is grounded in halakha, a detailed set of laws which guides observant Jews, but debate continues over whether Israel should adopt these religious laws to govern a largely secular population. Contradictions exist between the ancient laws and modern ideals, especially regarding women’s rights. Most developed states strive to enact laws that treat men and women fairly, but in Israel, where the rabbinical courts still adhere to ancient Jewish law, women’s rights suffer. Divorce laws in

The conflict between Israel and Palestine has an important significance because it's not only a territorial dispute, but also a cultural and religious one. The issue of recognition of the State of Palestine it's a problem hard to analyse considering the history of the belligerents and their argument about being hegemonic.
The conflict emerged in 1917 when the Balfour Declaration gave Israelis permission to establish in Palestine and was soon followed by a Palestinian manifesto in 1933, but the dispute became military in 1948 when the civil war turned in the First Arab-Israeli War won by the Zionists with the help of the West.

For the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, the Intifada provided them with a new and assertive Palestinian identity.

While these events during WWII were a contributing factor, a number of other aspects should be considered post the Second World War.
