Maps of the World: West Asia

West Asian Countries:

Syrian Arab Republic, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Iraq, IR Iran, Kuwait, Kingdom of Bahrain, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, State of Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Sultanate Of Oman, Yemen.

Apparently, Ahmadinejad has fans in the US. One of them is the publisher of maps of the world. It includes the non existent country of Palestine and excludes the UN member, Israel.

Here is an excellent sample letter:

Recently as I was doing some research work, I came across your map on West Asia. At first I thought I needed glasses and thought maybe my browser had a problem.

So I checked the page from 4 different browsers - all with the same result. Israel seems to have disappeared from your projection of West Asia.

Maps are not about ethnic cleansing. They are to measure and map out geographies and topologies at different levels. They are meant to provide objective tools for navigation and orientation.

You not only make a mockery of your own site and its credibility but it is an affront to any cartographer.

I do hope that you will put on some thinking glasses and see the difference between loony fantasies and the meticulous metier of serious cartography.
