Newsweek labels Israel 'Palestinian territory'

That's what both Fatah and Hamas really want - but its not politically correct to acknowledge in polite company that ALL of Israel is viewed by them as "Palestinian territory."

Newsweek should be thanked - rather than condemned - for letting the cat out of the bag.

"Hamas, however, is believed to benefit from Iranian support".....ya think?

Carl, what did they do with Gaza? Seems it isn't there.

More map revisionism, it seems!

Here's my goy 2 state solution:

How about the Western civilizations nuke the Islamic terrorists into submission and give control of the Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, the Sinai, hell, even Iraq to the Jews?

Let the Israelis control everything (military, social, religious and economic) BUT (and this is important in the liberal mindset) we call it "Israel and the Palestinian Territories" -- a 2 state solution... how about that?

It looks like NewsWhimper got the map the wrong way round, probably in error.

As has been pointed out, it's basically a map of Israel minus Gaza and the mal-named West Bank.

Possibly an ink colour was omitted which would have made the "territories" visible and dominant, to fit better with the caption.

YMedad,

They put Gaza in Egypt.

Newsweek is not too bright, but I am not sure this screw-up was the result of deliberate intent.

I opened the Newsweek site immediately after seeing this story and the change was already made! My graphic screen shot file, dated 3/3/09 at 9:51 a.m. PST shows most of Israel (top cut off for graphic size) in gray and only Gaza in RED and the West Bank in RED.

So RIGHT AFTER it was noted by blogs, the fix was made. Let's be reasonable about NWeek. They are not too smart, but at least they fixed the mistake quickly.

Only two conclusions are possible:

1. They either fixed it immediately after it was noted (by blogs like this one).

2. They fixed it shortly after it was posted, independent of the blog complaints (someone internal found that his subordinate doesn't know geography).

Either way, they repaired the problem quickly.

It was deliberately done. Newsweek actually thought that no one would notice or care.

Silly them!

What is Fareed Zakaria, the son of an Islamic scholar, doing in America's biggest newsrooms?

Where did the 'Koran down the toilet' story come from?

Is anybody connecting the dots?

Sheik,

Zakaria is actually an Obama favorite. That makes him a valuable commodity for a leftist rag like Newsweek.
