Why is Israel where it is?
Because that is where God defined its borders. See Numbers ch.33. The borders given there are not exactly the same as those of modern Israel, but most of the territory coincides.

There are huge amounts of things to do in Israel, and it reallydepends on the kind of thing you like. For a religious holiday, obviously, give several days to Jerusalem.Tours …around the old city, going to the various sites (church ofholy sepulchre/dome of rock/western wall) Also, you could go around the port of Jaffa which is verybeautiful. A few days touring Tel Aviv is always good, as there aremany beautiful Bauhaus-architecture buildings. A day trip to the Negev to do a hike or a camel safari is alwaysgood, you can also go to the dead sea and the nature reserve calledEin Gedi (I particularly recommend this- it is absolutelyfantastic). You can go white-water rafting on the river Jordan too. In the north, you can go skiing in mount Hermon (seasonal), stay ina kibbutz for a few days, or hike around the Galil. I have only given a few highlights. Your best bet is to get aguidebook.
Israel is both a country and a person. As the question has "who" in it, it would seem to refer to the person. Israel is an Old Testament Prophet and the third patriarch. He… is the same person as the Biblical Prophet Jacob.

Modern-day Israel is named after the ancient kingdom of Israel, which was named after Israel (an alternate name for Jacob son of Isaac son of Abraham).
The name " Israel " first appears in the Bible as the name given by God to the patriarch Jacob after his struggle with the angel Israel means Struggler of/with God Afte…rwards Jacob's descendants are know as Bnei Yisrael - The Children of Israel and the Land as Eretz Yisrael - The land of Israel The Children of Israel (Bnei Yisrael) were divided into twelve tribes descended from the 12 sons of Jacob. For several hundred years the Land of Israel (Eretz Yisrael) was organized into a confederacy of twelve tribes ruled by a series of Judges. In 1000 BCE, a monarchy was established under Saul, and continued under King David and his son, Solomon. Upon Solomon's death the nation split into two kingdom, Israel (Mamlechet Yisrael)in the north, and Judah (Mamlechet Yehuda) in the south. The Kingdom of Israel was conquered by the Assyria n ruler Shalmaneser V in the 8th century BCE. There is no commonly accepted historical record of the fate of those ten tribes, which are sometimes referred to as the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. The Kingdom of Judah was conquered by the Babylonia n army in 587 BCE After a few generations and with the conquest of Babylonia by the Persian Empire some of the exiles returned to their homeland. Under the Persia ns then under the Greeks , Jewish coins were minted as Yehud - Aramaic for Judah - coinage. A revolt eventually led to the formation of an independent Jewish kingdom, known as the Hasmonaean Dynasty , which lasted from 165 BCE to 63BCE. The Hasmonean Dynasty eventually disintegrated as a result of civil war. The people, who did not want to be governed by a king but by theocratic clergy, made appeals in this spirit to the Roman authorities. A Roman campaign of conquest and annexation, led by Pompey, soon followed in 63BCE. Later, Herod the Great was appointed "King of the Jews" by the Roman Senate, supplanting the Hasmonean dynasty. Some of his offspring held various positions after him, known as the Herodian dynasty . After the Census of Quirinius in 6CE, the Roman province of Judea was formed as a satellite of Roman Syria under the rule of a prefect until 41CE, then procurators after 44CE. In 66CE, the Jews began to revolt against the Roman rulers of Judea . The revolt was defeated by the future Roman emperors Vespasian and Titus. Jews continued to live in their land in significant numbers, the Kitos War of 115-117CE notwithstanding, until Julius Severus ravaged Judea while putting down the Bar Kochba revolt of 132-136CE. 985 villages were destroyed and most of the Jewish population of central Judea was essentially wiped out, killed, sold into slavery, or forced to flee. In spite of the failure of the Bar Kochba revolt, Jews remained in the Land of Israel in significant numbers. The Jews who remained there went through numerous experiences and armed conflicts against consecutive occupiers of the Land. The Modern State of Israel (Medinat Yisrael) was established in and named after the Land of Israel (Eretz Yisrael) So we see: Yisrael = Israel Yehuda = Judah Yehuda = Yehud = Judea Yehudi = Jew
