In the "Khrushchev Era" section there is a map that shows the West Bank as separate from Jordan in 1961 when in fact it was a part of Jordan from 1948 to 1967 and has never been an independent state. However, fixing the map is well beyond my capabilities so I'd like to draw attention to this (minor) inaccuracy. Blocky1OOO (talk) 16:11, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
It looks so damn dirty and messy. You know, sometimes it is better to sacrifice some information in order to have more readability. Someone make sense out of that. Tetra quark (talk) 02:27, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
