I heard recently that there were Jewish people living in Libya. I decided to search for stories using a google news search "libya jewish". At the bottom of the search results Google linked to the following apology. Kinda tells you how awful internet news can be... An explanation of our search results: If you recently used Google to search for the word “Jew,” you may have seen results that were very disturbing. We assure you that the views expressed by the sites in your results are not in any way endorsed by Google. We’d like to explain why you’re seeing these results when you conduct this search. A site’s ranking in Google’s search results relies heavily on computer algorithms using thousands of factors to calculate a page’s relevance to a given query. Sometimes subtleties of language cause anomalies to appear that cannot be predicted. A search for “Jew” brings up one such unexpected result.

stopped using google a long time ago when they REFUSED to show results that Jerusalem as Israel’s and refused to show results that showed land that belogned to the Jews after the treaty- they only showed results which claimed it belogned to palestinians- as well their ‘results’ pages were very anti semetic- Just another typical liberal big business
