Samaria Cross-Section

Golan Heights Cross-Section

This page points out that the Golan Heights are strategically important for several reasons:

(a) Israeli presence in the Golan Heights provides a defensible border against invasion by land;

(b) All of northern Israel is within range of direct artillery fire from the Golan Heights;

(c) The Heights control the main water sources of the State of Israel.

Israel’s Narrow Waistline

Between 1949 and 1967, Israel was only nine miles wide at one point. Additionally, Israel was in the plains while Arab armies controlled the high ground.  Maps like this one demonstrate what a miracle it is that Israel has survived.
