What's Missing?

It is important to note that this 1873 1893 map is an Arabic map, so it can't be brushed aside as a misunderstanding of the Ottoman Empire or Western propaganda.

IQ al Rassooli, who also emailed me this map, notes:

...the area of Israel is called " Wilayat Soorya" meaning "Province of Syria."

This land was under the domination of the Ottomans for almost 500 years and NO WHERE can one read the word Palestine or Palestinian on it.



Update:
Qalb-Al-Assad in comments says the date is actually 1893 on the map. I've updated the date.
