is a question asked by Europe-Israel-News. Here they show Israel's proportions on a map of France:
And they write (my translation):
Difficult for those who have never visited the region to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict geographically. The map above illustrates how tight it is. The parallel with our French geography allows a perspective of the current conflict.
The map below positions the area of Jerusalem on that of Paris. This way we see that the Israeli military operations would take place between the cities of Rambouillet near Paris that of Maintenon in the Eure-et-Loir. And all that on a stretch of 6 to 12 km. To reach these two cities, it takes about half an hour while the conflict would take place within 55 km from the capital.
Hamas has rockets and missiles capable of touching the city of Haifa in northern Israel. So, from Rambouillet they could easily reach Paris and even go to the city of Amiens.
Here below you have a few more maps which put Israel into geographical perspective:
That tiny little speck in red is Israel, just in the likely case you cannot see it. And this little spot, the only democracy in that region is supposed to be the cause of all that is wrong in the Middle East, and to believe some (alas too many) unsavoury characters this is supposed to be the cause of all that is wrong in the world?
Israel v. Arab occupied Lands:
1. Israel is bordered by 22 hostile Arab nations,
640 times her size and 65 times her population.
2. Jewish population worldwide = 13 million
3. Muslim population worldwide = 2.1 Billion
Which one is the David - which one is Goliath? And how did that biblical battle end already?........ Just in case it is not obvious yet ;), I am fully on the side of Israel and the Jewish people and so I hope for a repeat of that outcome. By the way: Goliath was not a Jew, but a Philistine. David was a Jew.
