You literally just contradicted yourself. You said "the State of Palestine", and a state doesn't necessarily mean it's a country. The title says "Countries" in it

Great to see 'Palestine' described as Palestinian Territories like they really are - rather than as a country which they aren't. Although I would prefer it if they were just included as Israeli territory.

Palestine is not a country. Even if you are to list it, "Palestinian Territories" is not the official name. Instead, it would be "State of Palestine".

Level 35
Mar 28, 2018
Oh, Palestine exists alright. It is called Jordan. There is no such thing as 'Jordanian Arabs'- they are Palestinian Arabs. The Palestinian Arabs have a homeland. Across the Jordan. Not within Israel. Therefore Palestine does not border the Mediterranean Sea and should not be on this list.

It's a tiny little sliver. When you drive along the West coast of Croatia you have to pass through it. I'm not sure what the deal with it is, it may have been a concession in a peace treaty

There seems to be a mistake. The quiz is called "Countries Bordering the Mediterranean - Map Quiz," and yet "Palestinian Territories" is not a country.

@tshalla Are you talking about Arab colonialism that took place in the 7th century?
@Corrode That's irrelevant. The point is that there is currently no sovereign country called Palestine (even though many people wish there was one). UN recognition doesn't change that fact. On the other hand, Taiwan, although recognized only by a small number of countries, is actually independent and sovereign, which is why it's considered a country on JetPunk. Sovereignty is the criterion, not recognition from other states. Similarly, Crimea is considered part of Russia because it is currently controlled by them, though most countries still consider it part of Ukraine. Although going by that logic, Somaliland, Transnistria and the like should also be considered countries since they're independent despite not being recognized as such by the rest of the world, so there's a bit of inconsistency.

The Palestinian homeland is in West Bank and Gaza (which does touch the Mediterranean. Just because Israel illegally occupies part of its territory doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Also trying to say 'Jordanian Arabs' don't exist because they are all Palestinian is a complete nonsense.

Level 35
Apr 3, 2018
Umm... why don't you just go off and do some research into the geopolitical and ethnic backgrounds to the Middle East.... I think you'll find that Jordanians ARE Palestinians. After WW1, the British and French divided the Middle East along the Syke-Picot line, and created 'protectorates' of the newly-created states. Britain took Iraq, the Arabian Peninsula states, and Palestine.

The Sykes-Picot agreement however divided the Ottoman vilayets of Syria, Jerusalem and Beirut (an area commonly known as Palestine). This meant that a new state named Transjordan (eg. beyond the Jordan) was created, and the rest of the three provinces were divided between Syria and a state named 'Palestine', which comprised the land that was clearly intended for the Zionist movement.

Palestine is the Arab name for the land between Sinai, the Arabian Desert, Syria, and the Mediterranean Sea. So all the Arabs living in that area are Palestinian Arabs, and this area includes Jordan. Do your research.

Shouldn't the UK be included in the quiz? Both Gibraltar and Akrotiri and Dhekelia border the sea. Also, you should delete Palestine, I mean, from the quiz and from the entire existance plain, it seems to have attracted some crusaders. Jokes aside, good quiz, nice and easy. It feels right to have some reliefs after hard quizzes.
