New York Times Map Puts Eilat in Sinai

The entire city of Eilat has infiltrated the Egyptian border, and is now in the Sinai peninsula — at least according to the map that appeared alongside a recent article in the New York Times.

Why should the Times let mere facts interfere with their unique brand of journalism?

And what else did you expect from the "august" New York Times that carries all the news that's fit to print??

Well, geographical knowledge in general has never been an American quality, even much before the "Grecians" of George Double U... But here in particular, to make of Eilat a part of Egypt is not innocent at all. Next step of the NYT: Haïfa, a Lebanese town? Tiberias, a Syrian city?..
