Search Engine Google Recognizes Palestine

 

On May 3rd of 2013, Google announced that it was officially changing the name of ‘Palestinian Territories’ to Palestine across all of her platforms. The official announcement seems to depict that Google has recognized Palestine as an independent entity rather than an occupied territory of the State of Israel. To make matters more interesting, Google also created a new hyperlink http://www.google.ps which is Palestine’s official home page on the popular global search engine. 

 

 

Google’s shift in policy helps to further legitimize the cries of Palestinians who are actively seeking the creation of a homeland for their people. This recent development, along with the upgrade in Palestine’s status within the United Nations General Assembly last year, has helped to further the cause of an independent Palestine. What this article shows is that popular sentiment is changing and the dynamic of the Arab-Israeli Conflict is thus changing as well.
