About Israel

For over 5000 years Israel is the focus of religious, cultural and political views and arguments. Most diverse cultures, different eras and three world religions have left their distinct mark. Even though the stories ran off painfully - the big events have created a huge wealth of sights and lots offer not only for those who are interested in the religion.
