Why is the Israeli government so keen on using the word ‘Israel’?

The word Israel has a long history in Israel.

The word itself is Hebrew for “home” and refers to the Jewish people.

It also means “right of return” for Palestinians.

The word “Israel” has come to be used by some in Israel as a derogatory reference to the country’s policy towards the Palestinians.

Israelis, especially the ultra-Orthodox, view Palestinians as outsiders who live in a different country from them.

This is particularly the case in the West Bank, where the majority of Palestinians live in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of East Jerusalem.

In Israel, the term Israel is often used to refer to any Palestinian territory, even those that were captured during the 1948 Nakba, or “genocide” that followed the creation of Israel in 1948.

The term is also used to describe Palestinians living in areas annexed to Israel in 1967.

This includes East Jerusalem, the West bank, and Gaza.

The use of the word Israel is controversial in Israel, and the country has been widely criticized for using it to insult and dehumanize Palestinians.

In 2013, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government ordered that the word be removed from its official dictionary, following an outcry.

In the same year, the Israeli parliament voted to create a new government with the backing of the far-right Jewish Home party.

In April, the US government blocked a plan to remove the word from the Oxford English Dictionary, saying that it was a “pernicious distortion” that “contains racist language that dehumanizes and oppresses groups of people.”

Israel, however, has not made a change to its dictionary.
