Google Recognizes Palestine

Via BBC News:

Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from “Palestinian Territories” to “Palestine”. The change, introduced on 1 May, means now displays “Palestine” in Arabic and English under Google’s logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed. In November, the UN gave Palestine the status of “non-member observer state”. The decision by the General Assembly was strongly opposed by Israel and the United States. Previously, Palestine only had “observer entity” status.

The wingnuts are gonna flip.
