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.
