Dictionary.com lists these definitions for the noun Israel
1. a republic in southwest Asia, on the Mediterranean: formed as a Jewish state May 1948. 7,984 sq. mi. (20,679 sq. km). Capital: Jerusalem (but not recognized by the international community).
2. the people traditionally descended from Jacob; the Hebrew or Jewish people.
3. a name given to Jacob after he had wrestled with an angel. Genesis 32:28.
4. the northern kingdom of the Hebrews, including 10 of the 12 tribes, sometimes called by   the name of the chief tribe, Ephraim. Capital: Samaria.
5. a group considered by its members or by others as God’s chosen people.
6. a male given name.
When this article speaks of Israel, it does so using the first of these definitions.
