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.

Which has quite an obvious reason


Yes: lobbying and pressure.

What's surprising is that Europe at large is ignoring this and cheers to Hamas, Fatah and co. rise to power through democratic means (the democratic part is not true anyway, but let's pretend).


You know, just because you're not unilaterally for everything Israel does doesn't mean you're for everything the other side does.
