The Land of God, Israel

AsianInfo's recent trip to Israel was very exciting, but it was also a very difficult time for Israelis and Palestinians.  They had been in the middle of a war for several weeks.  The war started because of unceasing rocket fire from Gaza into Israel over the past year.  The rocket attacks seriously damaged several Israeli villages and undermined Israelís territories.

Israel started with air attacks but the situation quickly escalated into a full scale ground invasion into Gaza.  Deep seeded issues brought on this war, not just territorial issues.  The conflict goes back in their history throughout many generations.

It all started with Abraham, their patriarch.  You may have heard about the story of Isaac and Ishmael.  According to the Bible, Abraham took Isaac to Mount Moriah to try and sacrifice him to God.  God stopped him and provided a lamb for sacrifice instead and instead promised Abraham that he would bless him and make him a great nation. more...
