Minds Explode as Google Wipes Palestine off the Map
Islamists are always trying to wipe Israel off the map. Now Google has wiped Palestine off the map and that has sparked anonline petition which currently has more than 150,000 signatures.
Petitioners are upset that when you do a search for Palestine in Google Maps a blank map of Israel is shown – with the areas of Gaza, Judea and Samaria marked.
The petition reads
“The country of Palestine does not appear on Google maps. Why not? Israel, established on Palestinian land, is clearly designated. But there is no mention of Palestine. According to Google, Palestine does not exist.
The omission of Palestine is a grievous insult to the people of Palestine and undermines the efforts of the millions of people who are involved in the campaign to secure Palestinian independence and freedom from Israeli occupation and oppression.
This is an important issue, as Google Maps are now regarded as definitive by people around the world, including journalists, students and others carrying out research into the Israel-Palestine situation.
Whether intentionally or otherwise, Google is making itself complicit in the Israeli government’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine.
Please join us in calling on Google to recognize Palestine in Google Maps, and to clearly designate and identify the Palestinian territories illegally occupied by Israel.
Please remember to share this petition with your social media contacts.
