  • I‘m Christian, I’ve always wanted to go visit the Holy Land (… but I’m too scared)

  • Israeli people are very clever. Israelis are very good at making money.

Where is israel

Where is Israel?

Depends who you talk to:

  • I’m Asian too– Israel is at the far west side of Asia.

  • Israel is in the middle east– but very different from all other middle eastern countries.

  • … Which is why, for many things, like international sports competitions, trade agreements etc. Israel is usually considered to be in Europe.

  • Israel has a very Mediterranean culture– personality, food, music…
