    Map #1 is complete hogwash, the land was owned by Britain, and there was no such thing as "Jewish vs. Palestinian land."  Jews there at the time were also Palestinian.  They didn't become Israeli till 1948.

    Map #2 is of a partition plan that was accepted by the Jews and rejected out of hand by the Arabs. The whole divide back then was Jewish vs. Arab, not Jewish vs. Palestinian.  The partition of British Palestine also included giving all of Jordan to the Arabs.

    Maps #3 is a bold-faced lie. The "Palestinian land" is actually Jordan and Egypt. Not Palestine.  If you have a problem with the Palestinians not ruling themselves during that time, blame Jordan and Egypt.

    Map #4 is hilarious.  You blotch out areas that are uninhabited and pretend that means it's Israeli land.  What a lie.
