      There is of course no justification for describing Israel as a: "prison camp".

    There are a few different definitions in which to define Israel.

    Israel, as in the modern day nation, is a country located in Western Asia bordering the Mediterranean Sea. It is located in a corridor between Europe, Asia, and Africa and serves as a Holy Land for most of the Abrahamic faiths. It's a great place to live, where most of the people are decent and watch each other's backs. Unfortunately, it's in a war with many of the surrounding nations and has to deal with those hostilities constantly; but, they still advance and have made their home comfortable.

    Israel is also the name of an ancient Kingdom in roughly the same area. The modern state is thought of as a continuation of this kingdom, albeit in the form of a democracy rather than a monarchy. Still, as its continuation, it maintains the same name.

    Israel is also just a normal boy's name, most commonly used by religious Jews and sometimes by Latinos. 

    The name of Israel comes from the patriarch Jacob, of the Bible. When he wrestled with the angel, he was bestowed with the name "Israel" - he who wrestles with G-d - after he won. The kingdom was founded by tribes named after his sons, so fittingly their unified name would come from their immediate progenitor. 

    It's worth mentioning that those tribes too are known as the Tribes of Israel, and as a collective would've been referred to as Israel itself.

    As the religion of Judaism is heavily linked to those Tribes of Israel, the adherents are not only known as Jews but "Am Yisrael", the people of Israel. Or, simply, Israel. Judaism is actually a foreign word to describe our religion, whereas the native Hebrew word for ourselves as Jews is actually Israel. The most important words in our religion are said to be the opening of the Shema' prayer: "O Hear, Israel, the Lord is your G-d, the Lord alone". These words are from Moses, speaking to the Hebrews freed from Egypt yet doesn't refer to them as Hebrew or Jew, but as Israel.

      Israel became Re-established because the “Palestinian” Arabs started a civil war to oppose the U.N. Partition Plan and instead take ALL the land, and expel or murder the Jewish population; the Jews had no alternative but to defend themselves - please see previous source.

    You have to be more specific.  "Israel" is a political state.  "Israel" is a religious and cultural nation.  "Israel" is the father of the 12 tribes in Judaism.  "Israel" is the Gallicized and Frenchified Hebrew surname of Great Britain's 43rd prime minister.  "Israel" is many, many, many whats.  Getting what what you want requires you to say.
