Two Middle East politics visualizations

These are both useful summaries. Slate has a chart of relationships between Hamas, Hezbollah, Israel, and Lebanon, versus a number of different actors in the region. NYTimes has something similar on a map, also showing the sizes of ethnic/religious groups. Seems the NYTimes is most interesting as far as visualization/graphic design goes. It also has rich relational information and lots of predicates: does group X have oil wealth? is group X in the government of country Y? Etc. Seems ripe for a relational concept-learning clustering analysis...
