Ramallah, 2 Dzulqa’dah 1437/5 August 2016 (MINA) –  The Palestinian Journalists’ Forum has denounced Google for deleting the name of Palestine from its maps and replacing it with Israel, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) reported, Thursday (4 August).

In a statement released yesterday, the forum said Google’s decision to remove Palestine from its maps on 25 July “is part of the Israeli scheme to establish its name as a legitimate state for generations to come and abolish Palestine once and for all.”

“The move is also designed to falsify history, geography as well as the Palestinian people’s right to their homeland, and a failed attempt to tamper with the memory of Palestinians and Arabs as well as the world,” said statement.

The forum said the move was “contrary to all international norms and conventions”, stressing that Google should back track on its actions.
