So why is Google getting Palestine so wrong now? The West Bank’s administrative center, Ramallah, featured prominently this year, in part due to Secretary of State John Kerry’s seemingly endless visits there during the doomed peace negotiations with Israel.

If that is what Google wants to do then people who disagree should stop using Google right away. Most people found out about this going on through Google. There is only one way to stop a bully and that is to fight back and hit them where it hurts the pockets.

How do you remove an entire area. Google is really flexing their muscles on this one. This is a big look who we are backing sign made by them.

Much of the Middle-Eastern media, along with Twitter and Facebook users, are demanding that Google relabel the region, or even all of Israel, as"Palestine." However, the Maps app never had that label in the first place, and Google tells Engadget that a glitch is to blame for the change."There has never been a 'Palestine' label on Google Maps, however we discovered a bug that removed the labels for 'West Bank' and 'Gaza Strip.' We're working quickly to bring these labels back to the area," a spokesperson says.

While the region remains unlabeled, the cities in the demarcated location are still designated as “Palestine,” a “de jure sovereign state,” on the pop-up Wikipedia Knowledge Box.

I think it has come the time that we replace google with another search option. If they are going to be this back handed we need someone new. All we have to do is start using something else and it will fade away. The people run Google.
