By chance I was talking to a geologist today in our international group and
saw on his desk a map of the arabian peninsula. Upon closer inspection it
included Israel, Jordan, Syria, Iraq and the Arabian Peninsula. It came
from a CD "Map Showing Geology, Oil and Gas Fields, and Geologic Provinces
of the Arabian Peninsula, by R. M. Pollastro, A. S. Karshbaum and R. J.
Viger, USGS Open File Report 97-470B

don't know how much it costs but it has a fair geologic map of the Levant.
The map is a .PDF file which can be read in Acrobat.

Adam, Apes and Anthropology
Foundation, Fall and Flood
& lots of creation/evolution information
