    Factfinder is asking why Israel is so specifically mentioned in History. Unfortunately, I cannot answer twice for a given question, thus, I am shooting another question. I am encouraging everyone to give also their answer to this question.

    Israel is so specifically mentions in history based upon the fact that so much controversy and conflict revolves around it. The capital of Israel is the holy city of Jerusalem, an icon of Christianity. During the Crusades, the Christian driven Europeans followed the commands of the Popes and invaded the country that is now Israel to free if from Muslim occupation. Israel was created post World War II in an effort for the Jewish people to have a holy land, and to shroud Jerusalem, much to the dismay of the Arab peoples who still fight and bicker/hold a long held grudge against those who reside within Israel. It is mentioned in history because of the fact that it is a holy land for 3 religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, who have fought, controlled, and lost the land over countless centuries. Now that the fact that only one religion currently holds it, the Jews, it is a constant foreign policy problem for many countries to accept that fact. So there you go. Israel is so specifically mentioned, because it is a relatively newly created nation, that houses a holy land for warring religions. Fun Fact: The Israeli commandos are one of the best military tactical forces in the world, comparable to both the Russian Spetnaz and the United States Navy Seals, who cooperatively trains with the Israelites.

    Israel is God's chosen people, and they have tried to get the land that God promised them, but they've struggled throughout history because they kept disobeying God...leading to them being slaves and what not...and the cycle of sin...O Israel

    I found the answer to this question in the book of Genesis.  It is a wonderful story.

    The reference in the holy books to Israel is a reference to Jacob whose one of  Allah's messenger and prophets, and not to the current State of Israel.This why the holy books always say ( the children of Israel).Allah had sent too many prophets to them than any other nation, but they were not believers in those prophets and even killed some of them.The Quran has stated in verse 70 Surat 5 the following :-

    ( We took the covenant of the Children of Israel and sent them messengers, every time, there came to them a messenger with what they themselves desired not - some (of these) they called impostors, and some they (go so far as to) slay.)
