Earlier this week, it was reported that Sebastian Gorka, a senior advisor to US President Donald Trump, once drew a map of Libya on a napkin during a meeting with a senior European diplomat, suggesting that the country be partitioned into three.

In that spirit, cartoonist Katie Miranda offers a selection of mapping moments, from bad to worse to just plain ugly.

You are invited to experience the best artisanal products Palestine has to offer!
Every quarter at Palbox we pack a box with a bottle of organic, fair trade Palestinian olive oil, za’atar, olive oil soap, a Palestinian art or craft and a piece of sterling silver Arabic calligraphy jewelry. Featured in this month’s box are sterling silver earrings which say “habibti” or “my love” in Arabic.
Our solidarity community is growing and has made much positive progress over the years like the rise of the BDS campaign, an increase in campus activism and the increased visibility of Palestinian voices in the media. But as Sam Bahour highlighted in my interview with him, we can’t can’t overlook the Palestinian economy which has been strangled and blockaded just like Palestinian lives and property. With that in mind I’ve partnered with the Northern California chapter of the International Solidarity Movement (NorCal ISM) to bring you Palbox!
