Mappery For the love of maps

Matzah Map of Israel

It’s Pesach (Passover) and Jews around the world will be eating a lot of matzah (unleavened bread). This map of Israel made out of pieces of matzah has been doing the rounds of social media and blogs recently. It will be considered controversial by some as it reflects the post 1967 situation on the ground rather than the 1948 Armistice border or Green Line. I see it as a bite of fun rather than a political statement.

Here is the UN’s original armistice map – it looks as if someone has taken a big bite out of the eastern side of the matzah map.
