Palestine in a 1947 National Geographic map

Reminder how some things change while other things remain locked in time.  The above is a 1947 map from National Geographic illustrating the proposed changes to Palestine (division of Arab State and Jewish State).  The text at the top reads:

Majority report of United Nations Special Committee on Palestine recommended that Palestine be divided into an Arab State (shown in dark gray) and a Jewish State (show in in light gray).  The area of Jerusalem would be administered by an International Trusteeship.
