Size of Religious Lands

I.  Israel is made up of 8,019 square miles.  Compared to the Arab world, the land mass is about 1/625 or 1/6th of 1%. of Arab land. It is so little that from Tel Aviv to Judea-Samaria (West Bank) it is only 11 miles (18 km).  From Netanya to Judea-Samaria it is only 9 miles (15 km).  Ashkelon is only 7 miles (11 km) from Gaza.  Beersheva is only 9 miles (15 km) from Judea.  Ashdod is the farthest from Judea, 22 miles (36 km).  Haifa is 21 miles (35 km)  from Samaria.  Made of 6 million Jews and 1.7 million Arabs, 130,000 Christians.  

Judea and Samaria were the homes of Judaism, led there by Moses.  They originally made up Israel.  When King Solomon (961-920 BCE) died, the southern part of the tribe of Judah pulled out and became the state of Judah.  The state of Israel was then conquered by Assyria in 721 BCE.  Judah was conquered by the Babylonians in 586 BCE.  Hence, Judaism comes from the name of the biggest tribe remaining, Judah.
