Mapping an Occupation

Just thought I'd throw this fabulous map up. It demonstrates fully the brutal and unjust Occupation of Palestine by Israel.

The Guardian

The Map itself is interactive, you can add and subtract features such as the Green Line, Israeli controlled areas, the route of the current Wall, the proposed route etc. It is impressive the level of work which went into this.

You know what they say: A picture is worth a thousand words - this one is worth millions!

I saw this map, rather amazing how far outside of it's borders Israel is.

Yet it pretends it is not a usurper, nor an occupier. It also pretends it does not have an expansionist agenda.

Hey Israel, though shalt not covet they neighbours goods!

God gave that one to Moses. Remember it?

Yeah it's great! I wish I could embedd it here. Very impressed!!

Thanks for that Maggie, it certainly puts things into a better perspective for me!

You're more than welcome Skye!

It really is good, clearly showing the lop sided situation that the Occupation has created.
