When you can't face reality, you make your own.

The Maproom has a link about disputed teritory maps.

“For mapmakers like Nova Rico, disputes over geography
are commonplace. For a Turkish customer, Cyprus is shown
split in two, a division that Greek Cypriots do not recognize.
In one globe, Chile gets parts of Antarctica that on another
globe go to Argentina. And in much of the Arab world,
Israel is nonexistent.”


Someone needs to tell these countries just because you click your heals and say, "There is no Isreal, there is no Israel." doesn't make there hopes to come true.
