Martini Lahoud posts a set of maps illustrating the areas of control in the land that was the British mandate of Palestine prior to WWII over the course of the last century.

Hat tip to Andrew Sullivan, who also recommends this Economist article for a history of the conflict.  I think that its clear that there is not a stable balance of power in the region.
