    Maps Of Israel

    The Arab-Israel conflict and the peace process have for decades been a focus for world-wide attention - on the part of the media, academia, political and governmental institutions, NGOs, religious groups, the business world, and the public at large.

    With the passage of time, some of Israel's critics have increasingly allowed their approach to the problem to be shaped by myths, slogans, prejudices and lack of knowledge, rather than by solid facts. This has been seen, for example, in matters pertaining to the territories in dispute between Israel and the Palestinians: the historical background is often either unknown or ignored. Moreover, even when dealing with the present situation - the problem of terrorism, regional dangers, and the impact of topography on borders - the context is often not taken into account.

    The purpose of this publication is to provide factual and background material through maps and graphs which address key aspects about Israel, the Arab-Israel conflict, and the peace process. This publication does not presume to address all issues, but does address many of them.

    It is hoped that through the illustrations and data provided here, a better and more factual understanding - of past events, the present reality, and future opportunities for peace - may be achieved.
