Jimmy Carter: Map Plagiarizer?

The main stream media and the blogosphere are abuzz debating and wondering if former President James "Jimmy" Carter plagiarized maps for his new book on the Israel/Palestine debate. Catholicgauze takes no stand in the debate. All I am wondering is who Carter's cartographer was. That could answer a lot of questions.

Here are the two maps in question. I will let the readers make their own conclusion. (Both maps taken via The Media Blog)

The Ross Map


Carter's Map

the REAL question here is, why do people still care about what Jimmy Carter has to say? who's buying/reading this book?

The real question is... shouldn't plagiarism involve words or things that are actually important?
