Map of the Day

[tweetmeme] Yesterday I posted a very telling map of East Jerusalem and the Israeli wall.  Today’s  map (HT to Andrew Sullivan) is of all of Israel and Palestine and shows the percentages of Arabs in Jews in each part in 1946.  As Sullivan points out, the Jerusalem section of this map is more of a greater Jerusalem.  The city itself has been predominantly Jewish since the late 1800’s.  But the percentages of Arabs in the northern part of the map are pretty overwhelming.
