The Israel you may not have heard about

Israel is so small, you can run through it from west to east in 2 hours and from top to bottom in 9 hours.

Arabic is an official language in Israel along with Hebrew.

Jerusalem, Israel, has been destroyed twice , besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, captured and recaptured 44 times and it's one of the world's oldest cities.

There are about 120,000 Jews of Ethiopian descent in Israel.  Ethiopian Judaism is nearly  identical to that practiced  2,000 years ago during the Second Temple Period.

Since its creation in 2006, the  United Nations Human Rights Council had resolved almost  more resolutions condemning Israel than on the rest of the  world combined.

Israel is the  only country in the world to have a  net gain of trees in the last 100 years.

Underweight models are banned in Israel to fight against anorexia.
