Israel confused me, too. The Mediterranean lies west of Israel. I suppose if you are at the very southern part of Israel you would go west into Egypt. Still, I found it confusing and when I looked it up online every source I checked said Egypt lies to the southwest of Israel. I should have just tried every country that borders it.

The Mediterranean didn't work for me either. Southwest would have been a better clue.

Egypt only works if you're at the south end of the country. From the center, going west puts you in the sea. If you're in northern Israel, Lebanon becomes be the answer.

Well since this quiz is about crossing borders I assume you'd have to be directly at the given border and step into the given direction and the answer is where it takes you. So for Israel if you're at the very southern border since you need to go South you definitely only end up in Egypt.

Carry: '....since you need to go South....'? South? The clue says West. The instructions don't say: at the Southernmost point of the clue country (if the direction is South) - which you have assumed, so I suppose that could be added. I think there's plenty enough time to put in a second guess - how much effort is it to type in Egypt if the first guess of Lebanon is incorrect.

How about adding a caveat to the instructions: "Where more than one country fits the clue, we want the one with the longest common border"? Then Egypt would be clearly the only answer.

Yes, but since it's an island, it doesn't share a border with Israel.

That is correct. If you go north from Windsor, Ontario, you end up in Detroit, Michigan. If you go west from Yukon, you end up in Alaska. If you go east from Niagara Falls, Ontario, you end up in Niagara Falls, New York.
