Six Centuries of Jewish Happenings: 21st Century

2000 Second Intifada

2006 Second Lebanon War

2014 Operation Protective Edge

 

So after all this crazy history...where is Israel now? Well, like always they're in the spotlight and getting negative attention from the media. Currently, they have their hands full with squashing some protest on the Gaza border and dealing with all that backlash from the international community. 

But putting all the violence and security concerns aside, Israel is fucking killing it. They've got vibrant culture, awesome food, and an advanced technologically driven economy. They have global influence and one of the most advanced armies in the world. For a country of only 70 years and with everything it has been through, the progress is unbelievable.
