PostSubject: English, Israel   Fri Nov 06, 2009 12:25 am

Hi, I’m from Israel that it is in Asia, it is located in the eastern Mediterranean Sea.
My country is bordered by Lebanon in the north,Syria in the northeast, Jordan in the east and Egypt in the southeast.
Moreover, it also occupies territories that are near the Jordan river.
Israel has coasts to the Mediterranean Sea, the Gulf of Aqaba, the” Dead Sea” and the Sea of Galilee.
Its capital is Jerusalem, but is not recognized by all states of the world.
Tel Aviv is the largest city, the capital and the country's financial centre.
In 2008, the population of Israel was 7.2 million inhabitants.
Since 1985, the currency is the New Shekel.
Israel has two official languages: Hebrew and Arabic. Hebrew is the main language of the state and is spoken by the majority of the population.
The president of the country is Simon Peres. It is a parliamentary democracy.

Israel's economy is based on a capitalist system. It is poor in natural resources, but could be self-sufficient thanks to tourism and industrial sectors. And Israel's security problems have a negative effect on tourism.
With regard to education, there are five types of schools: the secular public, the religious public, the public ultraortodoxa, communal settlement schools, and Arab schools.

In 2006 there was a 8.2% unemployment and the GDP was 155.000 million dollars.

To prevent the pollution of the seas and provide us with enough water, some countries like mine, use a system to recycle the sewage water and also change sea water into drinking water.
The most important wars that have affected Israel were the Second World War and the Six-Day War.
In World War II the Jews were prosecuted by the Nazis.
In 1967, Egypt, Syria and Jordan allied their troops, and blocked Israel's access to the Red Sea.
These actions caused the beginning of the Six Day War, in the end Israel won.
