  • Does Israel actually exist?

    Why is it that not a single Israeli city is shown on your map and yet every country around that area has many towns and citiies, some of them quite small, clearly marked.

    What has happended to Jaffa, Tel-Aviv, Haifa and so on?

    Accidental or ??????

          Google offers different maps for the maps.google.com website and others using the Google maps API service, like this one. In a lot of contries, however, the data is pretty much the same, since google has accuired a licence for such use. The difference for Israel, and some other contries, is as I understand it due to licencing restrictions imposed by locals map-providers (It is mentioned in discussions about this topic elsewhere, that the local mapdata provider in this case is "Mapa - GISrael"). You can look at this document to se that Google does not offer map data through its API for Israel:
