Newsweek Map Labels Israel as 'Palestinian Territory'

I don't know if Newsweek is as eager to be rid of Israel as "The State of Islam" is these days or not, but on its interactive online map of the mid east, the news mag is featuring a map of Israel labeled as "Palestinian Territory."

Once you click over to the Newsweek map, holding the mouse over the tiny red shape north of Egypt will bring up a popup map showing Israel clearly labeled as "PalestinianTerritory."

Here is a screen shot of the current map on Newsweek's site:

The Palestinians danced in the streets on 9-11. Of course Newsweek is going to take their side.

Well, I’m not an apologist for Newsweak, but this is soooo bad I’ll chalk it up to the artist being a product of our fine gub’mit schooling in geography.

78% of American Jews voted for Hussein. They have sold out Isreal. Holocuast author Elie Wiesel, who lost all his money to Bernie Madoff in a his Wiesel tax scam, gushes over Hussein.

Just for the sake our continuing education, perhaps Newsweek has an updated map of the US?

Just wondering...

Palestinian textbooks have long contained maps that lacked the antion "Israel". Now Newsweek does the same. It's beyond disturbing.

I sort of believe that most US news outlets are majority-owned by our enemies. Saudi Arabia, Palestinians, Hugo Chavez, China, Soros, Russia.

In the past, the media outlets have been anti-American but have applied figleaves and pretended that they are just reporting "facts". But there is some evidence that some of the outlets are now letting loose and not even pretending to be anything except anti-Western propaganda machines.

The Palestinian "armed forces (you know, the one "we" keep sending millions of $ to)" have worn a sleeve patch for decades with that identical "map.'

Is there a newsweek website where we can see the actual map?

I can’t find a link to the actual map on Newsweek’s site or via the Newsbuster article.

The LORD said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, "Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever."

Israel's existence, alone, should be proof of the living God.

No other nation ceased to exist for 2000 years and came back to life in the exact same spot!
No other dead language was resurrected to be spoken and written again in day to day life, as has Hebrew!

actual map here:
http://www.newsweek.com/id/187251

good quote from the intermediate linking page:

* Stage 1 (negation): Germany is not at all rearming.

* Stage 2 (bagatellisation): Okay, but not very much.

* Stage 3 (relativating): Okay, but in relation to GB, France and Soviets, it is a tiny army.

* Stage 4 (psychologization): Okay, but try to understand how they must feel surrounded, yes, under siege by many other nations!

* Stage 5 (disengagement): Okay, but now it is too dangerous to confront them.

* Stage 6 (appeasement): For hell, don’t provoke them! That will only worsen the situation.

* Stage 7 (resignation): We can’t do anything about it.

Not really directly related, but I have a Lib acquaintance that I would like to educate. Does anyone have a link/site with a concise explanation of the creation of Israel and the fallacy of "Palestine?"

I'm also looking for where I can find some ammo to hit him on Muslims being the overwhelming majority responsible for terrorist acts and/or evidence of the evil of the Koran and Mohammed.

Map

You can right click on the map and zoom in. It's a pretty poor map, but, it might be interesting to write to Newsweek and ask them to point out Israel in that map for us! lol

The most disturbing thing to me is not that Newsweek labels Israel as 'Palestinian Territory', but that there are still people who buy Newsweek.

There have been a couple of really good threads about Israel/Palestine, but I honestly can't recall the titles. :(

The Obambi administration is going to sell Israel out to Iran, to the Gaza Palestinians and to Hamas terrorists. The Obambi administration will be the instrument for the destruction of the state of Israel.

Right. The maps shows muslim nations and how they deal with religious tolerance. Jordan was left uncolored as well. Which causes me to ask, what religion does Jordan claim?

YOU buy Newsweak and Time-Lies with your tax dollars. For the public library, school libraries, etc.

Defund the Left. Boycott NOW.

To hear the Islamists say it, it’s because the Jews get nations to fight for them (including by faking the 9-11 attacks).

On the Newsweek map, the Palestinian territories are in red while Israel in gray. On your map, Israel is red, and it doesn't show the Palestinian territories. In other words it is completely inside out to what Newsweek depicts.
