There is an awful lot of commotion in the world over some fairly small
areas of land. The West Bank is one of those hot spots, with it's
roughly kidneybean-shaped area measuring a bit more than 76 x 32
There's an excellent, high-quality map of the West Bank at the
National Geographic site:
This is a fairly large download, so be patient. If you prefer, you
can view a smaller version of the same map here:
I printed out a good resolution print of the map and made some careful
measurements using the scale near the bottom of the map. Here's what
I came up with:
The North-South length of the West Bank is 76.5 miles at its longest
point. This is also just about the longest straight line measurement
in the area regardless of direction.
The widest point in an East-West direction is 32.3 miles, and occurs in two places:
--along a line that starts at Qalqilyah and heads east.
--along a similar line about 20 miles to the south, that begins in the
unnamed knob of land a bit north and west of Jerusalem, and extends
across past Jericho to the eastern border.
