A tiny country containing geographically diverse features and one of the most fought-over pieces of land in the world. Israel borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan and the West Bank in the east, Egypt and the Gaza Strip on the southwest, and the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea to the south. It is the world's only Jewish-majority state.
Some call it the Holy Land. The history is so deep and ancient that you have to admire it. It's a walking historical goldmine, every facet of this country is so dynamic and meaningful.
