“A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.” ~Bruce Lee
You’d think being one of the greatest portals of info in the world would peek one’s curiosity to actually READ some of that info and make one full of knowledge … not jam-packed with sheer ignorance. But alas … Google has proved the latter true…
According to Wikipedia, Google Inc. is an American multinational corporation specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include search, cloud computing, software and online advertising technologies. Hmm … that would put the following statement, by Google spokesman Nathan Tyler, at odds with their description:
“We’re changing the name ‘Palestinian Territories’ to ‘Palestine’ across our products. We consult a number of sources and authorities when naming countries. In this case, we are following the lead of the UN … and other international organizations.”
I’m sorry, did I miss Foreign Affairs experts in their description? Did these business geniuses suddenly become the new Wile E Coyotes of Foreign Policy?
Since Mr. Tyler and his ilk are too busy profiting off their work to UTILIZE their service, allow me to give them a primer that they don’t even have to Google:
— Judea-Samaria (also know as the West Bank) belongs to Israel. Always has and always will. It’s part of the Jewish National Homeland.
— The Middle East Road Map for Peace developed by the Quartet ( UN, US, EU & Russia) began with Phase I and the first stipulation of that Phase has never been fulfilled: Phase I (finished as early as May 2003): Mutual recognition; end to Palestinian violence and terrorism.
— The Palestinian Authority (PA) is comprised of 2 terrorist organizations: Hamas and Fatah. Both being duly elected by their people. Both having refused to acknowledge the existence of a Jewish State. Hamas has made it unequivocal that they never will recognize Israel as a legitimate State.
