    I already wrote this on a thread but thought it deserved it's own thread.

    If you manually look at Palestine on a map, the name doesn't show. All other countries (Israel (which If anything is the illegitimate state rather than Palestine)Jordan, Syria, etc)show, but not Palestine.

    If you actually search for Palestine, it shows where it is, but the name isn't shown on the map.

    Now tell me that's not some absolute conspiracy fueling, Zionist **** right there?

    Palestine is not recognised as a state by the U.S. and UK. That's why

    Those in the West, who continue to renew calls for "freedom of speech" and a "democratic peace process in the Middle East" yet continue to display purely hypocritical double standards when questioned themselves, pure hyperbole. Simple values we all take for granted in the way we like to be treated by others, yet cannot show that same endearing respect, gratitude or solidarity to others in desperate need.

    If it is to become a state it'll be pretty janky because it'll be West Bank + Gaza and it'll have Israel in the middle.

    First of all Palestine is not a de facto state, no matter how much you agree or disagree with their arguments for it being a de facto state at this moment in time it simply is not thus Google labelling it a country would not only be incorrect but also misleading. Second Google has often tried to extend its services to Palestine by acts such as giving them their own search engine www.google.ps and in the last few years helping to map the cities and towns contained within the Palestinian territories. It really isn't anything to do with the political situation regarding Palestinians and if Google really wanted to they could label Israel Palestine however doing so would not be in anyone's best interests and would certainly show severe political bias alienating first their Israeli users and more importantly Israel itself including all the tech companies located there.

    That doesn't actually make sense as a response to this. You may have missed that this is about things being labelled as countries on google maps.

    not only is palestine not a state, it never has been.
    If the name 'palestine' were to be added, where would it go? Would you have it twice? Once for Gaza, and once for the West bank?
