The internet is accusing Google of “erasing” or “deleting” Palestine off its maps, removing reference to the disputed territory which Israel claims as its own. Funny how the internet world goes nuts over this but how many times has Maps, searches, and other things and we don’t hear a peep out of the majority. One recent example is when Facebook was accused of purposely deleting Israel and even removing it’s flag from the list of Olympic participants in the Rio Olympics!

A quick primer on the disputed land: The state of Israel was created in 1948 on land that had previously been controlled by the British Mandate and was considered the region of Palestine. Since then, the territory has been claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians as their rightful homeland. Violence has been commonplace for decades, as multiple wars and intifadas, or uprisings, have failed to bring peace to two peoples who claim one land. Multiple rounds of internationally-mediated peace talks have also failed.
