A picture worth a thousand words

Two pictures borrowed from "Just World News," which say a lot.

The first from South Africa in the evil days of Apartheid and bantustans.

The second from the West Bank (aka the Eastern part of Palestine) in the evil days of occupation and dispossession. What the authors have done is represent the map (which is pretty accurate) as a nautical map, with Palestinian enclaves shown as land and Jewish settlement zones and bypass roads as the ocean.
