For a country of such small size, Israel boasts an unexpectedly rich variety of animal, bird and plant life. Sitting as it does at the south-western edge of Asia, the south-eastern edge of Europe and he north-eastern end of the African continent, species of flora and fauna from all three continents can be found in the land.

Israel’s terrain is made up of five vegetation zones: Euro-Siberian – with plantlife found in Europe, Russia and Siberia; Mediterranean – with conditions similar to those in other countries on the Sea; Irano-Turanian – with land similar to the steppe-lands that stretch through Iran, Turkestan and Inner Asia to Inner Mongolia; Sahara-Arabian – pure desert of the kind found in the Sahara, the Arabian Peninsula and parts of southern Iran; and Sudanese – tropical vegetation, confined to small enclaves and oases. This widely diverse landscape offers ideal home environments for a particularly rich assortment of plant, animal, bird and insect life.

We will visit these different regions in these pages in the coming days, and zoom in for a closer look at some of the life the land of Israel has to offer.




The PLO was instituted in 1964 three years before the six day war in June 1967 when Israel, in a war of self-defense, recovered the so-called “West Bank”, now seen and proclaimed by nearly everybody as the quintessence crux of the Middle East problem.
This however shows that the PLO (All Palestine needs to be liberated) was not formed to erect a Palestinian state on the ‘so called’ West Bank but was instituted to replace all of Israel with a Muslim Palestinian State.

Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
