These latest maps, one is drawn to scale for orientation and one cartogram altering land size based on fatalities during the latest Gaza conflict and 3 years of civil war in Syria. The more the land area, the higher the fatalities. These were made to illustrate the debate swirling the in media about proportionality in coverage . Gaza’s land area was altered by 750+ Palestinian deaths and Israel was altered by deaths by rocket fire in Israel plus Israeli solders killed in Gaza, 35 to date (July 25, 2014). The Syrian map shows Palestinian deaths in Syria, 2,378 at last count, during the entire civil war from 2011. In the map, Syria is shown as a bit smaller than its normal size but maintains its shape. Israel is small and distorted to indicate low numbers of fatalities while Gaza the land area expanded to 1/4 the size of Syria.
