Fisk on those Awful Maps

I always found those maps that carved up areas by race and religion to be somewhat distasteful. It was like saying that this area belongs to people of one race/colour/creed. These maps seem to take on a particularly distasteful aura in the current breathless discussions of the "ages-old seeds of hate" that is the "root" of the current sectarian violence in the Middle East.

I came across an article in the Dawn newspaper which was originally printed in the Independent by Robert Fisk which kind of puts this dismay into words. Sigh.
