The modern Jewish state is not only the “Promised Land” for Jews, but the only country in the world where they form a majority of the population. For Christians, Israel is the “Holy Land,” because it is the place where Jesus’ life and death unfolded.

A complex relationship between religion and politics is inherent in Israel’s character as a Jewish state. The term Jewish denotes both a religion and an ethnicity, and, for the past seventy years, Israel’s leaders have had to deal with a host of issues regarding religion’s role in the life and politics of the Jewish state.

Israel remains one of the most stable countries in the Middle East, despite an extremely diverse society marked with cultural and political differences between secular and ultra-Orthodox Jews, Jews of Middle Eastern and European descent, and the split between the Jewish majority and the Arab Palestinian ’s fragmented political scene invariably produces large coalition Author: Primoz Manfreda.
