I keep flailing the American press for not showing people what East Jerusalem looks like; how far settlements like Gilo and Ramat Shlomo are from the Old City. Well the Times has a pretty good editorial supporting Obama over Netanyahu here, and it is accompanied by a map of East Jerusalem that goes a long way in the direction I want.
I wish the wall weren’t indicated by a faint gray line; this conveys nothing of the real sense of the wall. Also it would be good to have photographs of the carving-up of Jerusalem, so you understand what it is like to look at Gilo from the village of Wallajeh just to the southeast, how Gilo towers over the village whose land it is gobbling.
