    Israeli Climate

    Israel is on a climatic crossroad, which is a transitional area between a temperate and arid climate. The southern and eastern areas of Israel are characterized by an arid climate, while the other areas are characterized by a Mediterranean climate.

    Due to this climatic formation, there is high variability in the amount of precipitation from year to year, and in the different areas of the country.

    The legal borders may be googled under "Partition Plan" / wiki. It you are talking the government,it currently illegally occupies the other 45% of the Palestinian Territories. They pretended to agree to the Partition Plan then gobbled up the entirety of Palestine - exactly what the Arab League predicted they would do. The government also occupies a Syrian province known as the Golan Heights.

    The ratio of land in Israel to the land of arab countries is about the size of a very small studio apt in NYC compared to

    the size of say the Hearst castle in San Simeon.

    It is big.

    Bigger than Cyprus, Lebanon, Jamaica, Slovenia e.a.

    Look here:

    I'd say it's pretty big myself.

    Look further down and you'll see how small is the Palestinian territory.
