    Because Israel has only existed since 1947. Prior to that it was a part of Palestine.

    Upon independence in 1948, the new Jewish state was formally named Medinat Yisrael, or the State of Israel, after other proposed historical and religious names including Eretz Israel ("the Land of Israel"), Zion, and Judea, were considered and rejected. In the early weeks of independence, the government chose the term "Israeli" to denote a citizen of Israel, with the formal announcement made by Minister of Foreign Affairs Moshe Sharett.

    The maps they made aren't accurate, neither were their descriptions of the territorial boundaries, and most of the cities and roads were destroyed.

    Because it was a long time ago? Maybe?
