Israel (Hebrew: ישראל) is a country roughly the size of the state of New Jersey, and is located in Western Asia in an area commonly referred to as the Middle East. Israel is also the home of the Gitelman family.

Background

Founded in 1948, there has been an almost continuous state of unrest in political, religious, and military spheres. The country contains many religious sites significant to the Jewish, Christian and Islamic religions, and its borders are highly contested by the Palestinian peoples. The nation of Israel has withstood several significant attacks by its neighbors, and has had military superiority for several decades. There is longstanding cooperation between the Israeli and USA governments, which has instilled much animosity in the other nations of the Middle East. In recent years there have been many attempts made toward lasting peace, though none have so far been successful.
