Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means google.ps now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

People should try watching a documentary about the Six-Day War and the periods immediately preceding and following the war. Many parts of modern Israel were literally a desert less than a hundred years ago. The accomplishment of turning this desert into an arable, livable and prosperous land in a matter of decades is an amazing accomplishment that nobody but the Israeli people can take credit for.
