Israel is a country in western Asia, or the Middle East. It was originally settled by the Canaanites, who were eventually conquered by the Israelites. The Bible records the history of Israel from the conquest under Joshua to the early days of Christianity. For the better part of 2000 years, however, Israel was occupied by the Romans, the Muslims, the Crusaders, and the British, before it finally became an independent nation in 1948.
