I thought this was a well written and informative op-ed…

The incredible shrinking Palestine.Israel is whittling away at Palestinians’ land again, but it needs the U.S. to sharpen the knife.By Sandy Tolan, SANDY TOLAN’S most recent book is “The Lemon Tree: An Arab, a Jew, and the Heart of the Middle East.”
THE HISTORY of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can be glimpsed through a series of maps.First is the sepia-toned map of Palestine under the British Mandate, circa 1936. On its surface it suggests one unified country where Arab and Jew can live together between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. This is the map that some Palestinians still place on their walls: A whole Palestine, representing the dream of an independent, secular, democratic and Arab-majority state. Many Israelis still see this map as representing their dreams too, the whole Jewish homeland. LINK
