Middle East Monitor has reported that The Palestinian Journalists’ Forum has denounced Google for deleting the name of Palestine from its maps and replacing it with Israel.
In a statement released yesterday, the forum said Google’s decision to remove Palestine from its maps on 25 July “is part of the Israeli scheme to establish its name as a legitimate state for generations to come and abolish Palestine once and for all.”
The move is also designed to falsify history, geography as well as the Palestinian people’s right to their homeland, and a failed attempt to tamper with the memory of Palestinians and Arabs as well as the world.
It has since claimed that it was a glitch. Will Google also so kindly show the map below how the rightful owners, the Palestinians have lost their land since the inception of the illegal state of Israel?
The forum said the move was “contrary to all international norms and conventions”, stressing that Google should back track on its actions.
in fact, in 2013, hackers tried to send a message to Google to remove Israel from the map completly since it’s an illegal state.
