    3. 3. <ul><li>The occupied Territories consist of The Gaza Strip, The West Bank and East Jerusalem, along with the Golden Heights. </li></ul>Many Palestinian's had to flee their country because the Israelis are throwing them out, and keeping them under harsh conditions.
    4. 4. <ul><ul><li>Israel is located in a very mountainous range, which divides Israel from East to West along the coast. In this area there are many natural caves but not many are open to the public. This is because there is a danger that the caves would break, and since tourism is a major industry in Israel, this would be bad. The Jordan river also runs along the banks of Israel. The Jordan river then leads to the dead sea. </li></ul></ul>
    5. 5. <ul><li>Israel is considered one of the most advanced countries in the middle east. Israel has the second largest number of start-up companies in the world. Israel has been receiving economic aid from America, but this aid is expected to end this year, as Israel is now a rich country. (The aid consisted of about 1 billion dollars) Tourism, mostly religious tourism is also an important industry in Israel. </li></ul>
    6. 6. <ul><li>Israel imports many things, such as fossil fuels, raw materials and military equipment. Exports include fruits, vegetables, pharmaceuticals, software, chemicals, military technology, and diamonds. </li></ul>The Israeli Currency is measured in Sheqals (₪) the Israeli Sheqal is equal to about 0.26 US Dollars and 1 Israeli Shekel is about 0.95 Qatari Riyal
    7. 7. Social <ul><li>Most Arabic countries dislike Israel. This is because the Israelis are killing innocent Palestinians to gain control of land. Israel has had very many wars, for example with Egypt and Jordan. Israel has signed peace treaties with these two countries, and many countries are trying to force a permanent peace treaty with the Palestinians. Israel has a population of about 7.2 million. Israel is the worlds only Jewish state, and the majority of Israel are Jews. Most other people are Muslim Arabs, Christians and Druze. </li></ul>
    8. 8. Social 2 <ul><li>Israelis are drafted into the army at the age of 18. Men must serve 3 years and women must serve 2. Men must also do reserve duty, meaning they have to go to the army a few weeks a year. Reserve duty only lasts until men are forty, and women are expelled from reserve duty. For people who receive exemptions from the army, they are still forced to do national service, for example working in schools or other social welfare frameworks. Everyone can vote in Israel. </li></ul>
    9. 9. Why? <ul><li>I chose social physical features because Israel Is so beautiful, and the mountains are so nice. I also think that the caves in Israel are very beautiful. </li></ul><ul><li>I chose Economy because it links to Social, as Israel is paying money to finance the war against the Palestinians. I also really like the currency that is used in Israel and think that is has a nice name. </li></ul><ul><li>I chose Social because I live in an Arabic country, where most people hate Israel and I think it is very important that this is mentioned in this assignment. </li></ul><ul><li>I think Israel is a very nice country, except I don't like the fact that the Israelis are killing many innocent Palestinians and are trying to make them flee their own country. </li></ul>
