Fun indeed. But Austria needs to count for Italy/Liechtenstein, and you forgot the only about 30 km one needs to pass through Jordan to get from Saudi-Arabia to Israel, down at the Gulf of Akaba.

The shortest distance between Italy and Liechtenstein are separated by Switzerland, not Austria. The shortest distance between Israel and Saudi Arabia are separated by water over the Gulf of Aqaba and does not cross any land over Jordan.
