Week 12 - Israel Postcard Challenge

Week 12, amazing, times does fly. Here we are on our journey via Postcards with Darcy's Postcard Challenge.
Week 12 has taken us to Israel, a country I truthfully know very little about. The State of Israel was formed in 1948, there are two main languages, Hebrew and Arabic. Jerusalem, the capital, is one of the oldest cities in the world. It is also regarded as a very important religious centre, not only for the Jewish religion, but for Christians and Muslims. The country is made up of many nationalities, due to it's short existence and the migration of Jewish people from countries with either a history of intolerance with the Jewish faith or the desire for folk to live in a Jewish community and country.  In the country there are also other important religious areas and town, including Bethlehem and Nazareth. There is a lot of political and conflict information available. The National Postal system features many butterflies on their stamps so I assume the country being such a warm area, positioned to the east of the Mediterranean, will have many flowers and butterflies. It is a wealthy country with impressive new buildings, an excellent education system. here is my postcard, which features a map of the country and one showing it's position in the middle east. A postage stamp of a camel, and transport, the national flag, some flowers and some pretty butterflies. I thank you for taking the time to look and to maybe even comment. I am now looking forward to visiting those who have already submitted their entries to Darcy's blog. come along and take a look there are some amazing postcards, some with fascinating stories to tell. Mr. Mrs. Grainger, Hermione's parents are visiting Isreal for her father to speak at the National
committee of the Red Cross and Red Crescent section in Jerusalem.
