As long as we're looking at maps, maybe Herman would benefit from glancing at one of the Ottoman Empire ca 1912. Since he believes maps equate to truth, perhaps he'll determine that what is now the State of Israel rightfully belongs to Turkey. By the same logic, I suppose the Norman French ought to find a few Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Celts and Danes and cede southern Great Britain to them. Would be good job for Herman to undertake. A Nobel for sure awaits him.
