The country of Palestine does not appear on Google maps. Why not? Israel, established on Palestinian land, is clearly designated. But there is no mention of  Palestine. According to Google, Palestine does not exist.

          Nah, Dav from boards is or was a good bloke, maybe the corporate dollar has worn him down and turned him into the shrieking lunatic that we have here

            aww, have I upset ye over pointing out about Gaza, and the million+ that live there. Things ye prefer to forget about… Is that it?? I suppose you probably deem it a bit too radical to consider that they might be entitled to a place to call home – that’s right.

            “I suppose you probably deem it a bit too radical to consider that they might be entitled to a place to call home”

            I’m glad that the sum total of having a place to call home can be expressed by Google listing palestine on a map

    Good Lord, BS Towers are really enjoying this Greatest Hits tour. Bet when it does appear in Google Maps it will be shaped a little like Ireland.

    I’m guessing it’s a bit like Kashmir – lot’s of dotted lines and trying not to piss off either side too much

    Plus, you know the Google main men are ‘four by twos’ so they have, like, a vested interest in suppressing the existence of Stabsylvania.

      While you as a ‘four leafed clover’ have a vested interest in murdering as many english people as you can to achieve a united ireland, right?

      Bigot.

        WTF have the English got to do with achieving a united Ireland. The British, ok fair enough but the Bon Jovies didn’t care what nationality the oppressor was, it was open season, all bets off during the troubles (a wee war that took place just about 45mins up the road from Dublin. I’m sure you heard of it).

    I can’t find Ruthenia, the Ottoman Empire, or the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies either! What’s going on at Google?

      The US might elect Trump as their President. I think their legitimacy as a country could also be called into question at this point.

          He is likely to get the nod though, which is frightening in itself, they left it too late to deal with him now

          Bernie Sanders is going to win the Democrat nomination and then Bernie Sanders is going to win the Presidential Election.

          Ireland elected Edna Kenya as their Taoiseach (more or less). I think their legitimacy as a country should be called into question at this point.

    First Palestine, next people will want Guantanamo Bay in the map… they ain’t countries, they are just illegal camps breaking all human rights possible, relax.

  6. Jimmy IN & Out

    Ah well, in the UAE maps and globes don’t have Israel on them, so big swinging mickey…

  7. Twunt

    Where on the map is the that beacon of freedom and prosperity created by ISIS, The Islamic State?
