Israel is Left Off Map Used By Children In Middle East

One of the world’s biggest publishing houses, HarperCollins, has published a map used by children in the Middle East that omits the entire nation of Israel.

According to the Tablet, an atlas distributed in English-speaking schools within the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East fails to label Israel. The West Bank is labelled clearly next to Gaza but Israel is nowhere to be found. Because of this strange decision, the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has accused HarperCollins of incidentally damaging the movements of peace in the Middle East.

HarperCollins defended its choice to leave Israel off the Middle East maps by claiming they amended the maps to fit “local preferences.” In fact, HarperCollins claimed it would have been “unacceptable” to leave Israel on a map used by residents of the Gulf in the Middle East.

3. It would be impossible for me to like them any less than I already did.

Though they are useful as a tool of torment here in Hell.

5. Rupert Murdoch & his vanity productions, rewriting history as we speak. Rupert was caught again.

nothing Rupert does is by chance. It is all carefully planned and plotted.

10. Guatemala does the same with Belize.

Mexico claims Belize also, but I don't think they edit it off the map.
