Arab – Israeli Conflicts: 1948-Present Graphic

This graphic keeps a track of the death tolls, major figures and geographic location of the various conflagrations that together form the Arab-Israeli conflict. Of course this conflict is not simply about casualties on either side, or the transition of territory, but these facts are worth bearing in mind when one contemplates the historic origins of a constantly mutating conflict.

    The inforgraphic seems to be missing some additional information. While you specifically state 1 million Palestinians were displaced in the 1948 war ( the UN estimated just above 700,000 so your numbers are inflated), you seem to ignore the 800,000 Jews displaced from their homes in the Arab lands during and following the war. Please correct this.
