The internet search giant took the decision to remove Palestine from its maps on 25th July, 2016.
The Palestinian Journalists’ Forum have criticized Google for removing the name of Palestine from its maps and substituting it with that of Israel.
On August 4th, the forum said Google’s decision to remove Palestine from its maps is part of the Israel’s scheme to establish its name as a legitimate state for generations to come and a eliminate Palestine once and for all.
They have added that the move was designed to falsify history, geography as well as the Palestinian people’s right to their homeland and attempt to intrude with the memory of Palestinians, Arabs and entire world.
“The move was contrary to all international norms and conventions and stressed that Google should back track on its actions,” Said the forum.
It was 2013, when hackers sent messages to Google to remove Israel from the map completely since it’s an illegal state and violated Palestinians rights
It is unfortunate that Google are not showing how the rightful owners of Palestinian land have lost their land since the inception of illegal settlement of Israel people to Palestinian land.
Many termed erasing the very record of the existence of the People of Palestine from world maps by Google is a pro Jews move, an Israel’s plot for striving a level of genocide which only Nazism could dream.
