Stop the Wall Campaign and cartographer Jan de Jong have produced an authoritative map of the Trump Administration’s much touted plan for entrenching Israeli apartheid through the annexation of West Bank territory, while excluding the indigenous Palestinian people living there. This forms the latest dimension of apartheid that Israeli imposed over Palestine in 1948, leading to the creeping annexation of the remaining territories of Palestine which Israel occupied by force in 1967.
This map is based on the source document attached to Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ Plan. The lack of details in the maps included in this source document does not allow one to understand the full impact of the proposed plan. It obscures crucial elements, and the oversized Tunnel-Bridge symbols conceal more than they reveal. Stop the Wall, together with Jan de Jong an expert in the geopolitics of Palestine, have produced the following map based on extensive field trips and in-depth knowledge of the reality on the ground. This map provides a detailed look at the geo-political transformations and the new realities that will be created as a result of the Israeli annexation plan.
