This map shows what is left of oriental Palestine. For those who are not familiar with the matter, the map uses irony by naming 'islands' the different occupied Palestinian villages and cities, cut from each other by settlements, walls, settler only roads and military barrages. The question is how much those who still defend the two state solution are out of touch with the reality of the land and the people in Palestine today. And does their peace rethoric about Israel-Palestine and the two state solution have any relation to reality ?

The map is also published here with a word from its author Julien Bousac.
“Maybe posting the full map would help to take it for what it is, i.e. an illustration of the West Bank’s ongoing fragmentation based on the (originally temporary) A/B/C zoning which came out of the Oslo process, still valid until now. To make things clear, areas ‘under water’ strictly reflect C zones, plus the East Jerusalem area, i.e. areas that have officially remained under full Israeli control and occupation following the Agreements. These include all Israeli settlements and outposts as well as Palestinian populated areas.”
