HEB - מדינת ישראל (בערבית: دولة إسرائيل, תעתיק: דַ‏וְלַת‏ אִסְרַאאִיל) היא דמוקרטיה פרלמנטרית הנמצאת במזרח התיכון, לחוף הים התיכון ומוגדרת כמדינה יהודית ודמוקרטית. רוב תושבי המדינה הם יהודים, אך יש בה מיעוט גדול של ערבים (מרביתם מוסלמים), וקבוצות מיעוט אחרות.

ישראל גובלת בים התיכון ובמצרים במערב, בים סוף בדרום, בירדן במזרח, בסוריה בצפון-מזרח ובלבנון בצפון. בין ישראל למצרים, לחוף הים התיכון, נמצאת רצועת עזה, שהיא שטח בשליטה חלקית של החמאס, למרות שמרשם האוכלוסין, גביית המכסים וניהול כניסה ויציאה של סחורות נמצאת בידי ישראל. באזור ההר המרכזי שבין ישראל לירדן נמצאת הגדה המערבית, הידועה גם כיהודה ושומרון, שטח שנמצא בשליטה משולבת של ישראל והרשות הפלסטינית ומעמדו הסופי, כמו גם מעמדה של רצועת עזה, טרם הוכרע. בין ישראל לסוריה נמצאת רמת הגולן, שטח שנמצא בשליטת ישראל והוחלו עליו חוקי מדינת ישראל (דרך חוק רמת הגולן), אך סוריה ממשיכה לתבוע עליו ריבונות, ומעמדו הבינלאומי טרם הוכרע.





ENG - Israel (Hebrew: יִשְׂרָאֵל‎, Yisra'el; Arabic: إِسْرَائِيلُ‎, Isrā'īl) officially the State of Israel ( מְדִינַת יִשְׂרָאֵל (help·info), Medinat Yisra'el; Arabic: دَوْلَةُ إِسْرَائِيلَ‎, Dawlat Isrā'īl), is a country in the Middle East located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan in the east, and Egypt on the southwest, and contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Also adjacent are the West Bank to the east and Gaza Strip to the southwest. Israel is the world's only Jewish state, with a population of about 7.37 million, of whom about 5.57 million are Jewish. It is also home to other ethnic groups, including most numerously Arab citizens of Israel, as well as many religious groups including Muslims, Christians, Druze, Samaritans and others.


The modern state of Israel has its roots in the Land of Israel (Eretz Yisrael), a concept central to Judaism since ancient times, and the heartland of the ancient Kingdom of Judah to which modern Jews are usually attributed. After World War I, the League of Nations approved the British Mandate of Palestine with the intent of creating a "national home for the Jewish people." In 1947, the United Nations approved the partition of Palestine into two states, one Jewish and one Arab. On May 14, 1948 the state of Israel declared independence and this was followed by a war with the surrounding Arab states, which refused to accept the plan. The Israelis were subsequently victorious in a series of wars confirming their independence and expanding the borders of the Jewish state beyond those in the UN Partition Plan. Since then, Israel has been in conflict with many of the neighboring Arab countries, resulting in several major wars and decades of violence that continue to this day. Since its foundation, Israel's boundaries and the State's right to exist have been subject to dispute, especially among its Arab neighbors and their many Palestinian refugees. Israel has signed peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, though efforts for a long-lasting peace with the Palestinians have so far been unsuccessful.


Israel is a representative democracy with a parliamentary system and universal suffrage. The Prime Minister serves as head of government and the Knesset serves as Israel's legislative body. In terms of nominal gross domestic product, the nation's economy is estimated as being the 44th-largest in the world. Israel ranks highest among Middle Eastern countries on the bases of human development, freedom of the press, and economic competitiveness. Jerusalem is the country's capital, seat of government, and largest city, while Israel's main financial center is Tel Aviv.
