A NY attorney creates a kit that shows Israel´s point of view, how
Israel is crucial to world security and shows up the water theft lie.
Mark Langfan, a successful New York attorney and staunch supporter of
Israel, came to the conclusion one day that the truth about Israel
must become accessible and easily understood.
Not one for letting things stop at the idea stage, the talented
attorney created an original and easy to grasp visual method that
can - in minutes - explain the problems Israel faces when it talks
of "defensible borders", expose the truth about the Palestinian
Authority water resources canard and prove the way Israel´s safety
affects the world.
He then invested time and money and created a one-of-its-kind 3-
dimensional topographic raised-relief map system of Israel,
accompanied by special plastic devices that make his subject matter
clear as a bell.
He has published fliers, kits, map sets and booklets explaining his
methods and how to use the graphics in the kits to best advantage.
Over the past 20 years, Mr. Langfan has briefed many congressional
and Senate offices, the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Israel Desk, and
even The New York Times Editorial Board using his topographic map of
The enthusiastic Langfan is currently visiting Israel, where he has
briefed Ambassadors, MKs, Government officials and Spokespeople,
using his unique maps and vast store of knowledge to show how the
problems can be easily comprehended, especially highlighting the
strategic threats of seceding from the West Bank.
Last week Langfan was invited to give a special briefing in the
Knesset, by MK Yaakov Katz (National Union), attended by key party
activists, public figures and leaders of Judea and Samaria including
Dani Dayan, Chairman of the Yesha Council and the Ambassador of
Costa Rica, H.E Mr. Rodrigo Carreras. Arutz Sheva was there.
Langfan uses his map to level the playing field in a sea of political
jargon and slogans. Much of his presentation focuses on the issue of
water, which is key to understanding the conflict, as he explained.
“People don’t realize that close to half of the water in Israel comes
from underground aquifers in Judea and Samaria. Many of the
key "settlements" like Ariel and Kedumim were built along the line
from which water runs down westward towards the coast in order to
protect this vital source. Israel gives Palestinian Arabs much more
water than demanded by the peace agreements .
"Transferring control of these areas to the Palestinians could
seriously harm the natural equilibrium and drastically effect Israel,
this is aside from the direct security threats involved.”
Langfan’s Israel map system provides decision- makers with a
scientifically exact topographic chess board on which to understand
and game out various options for peace and to better understand
the “code” in which Middle Eastern leaders actually talk.
Terms such as “Settlement blocs,” “Jordan Valley,” “contiguity” and
the “Mountains of the Golan Heights” become crystal clear and easily
understandable. Arutz Sheva has published several articles about his
method, but the kits are necessary in order to fully explain the
vital points he raises.
