Google Gives ‘Palestine’ a Domain Name
Google is de facto recognizing a state of Palestine.
Tyler says Google consults with various sources and authorities when naming countries, and in this case is following the lead of several international organizations. The move comes after a U.N. decision last year upgrading the Palestinians‘ status to “non-member observer state.”
Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor says Google is not a diplomatic entity, which prompts the question of why it is getting involved in a controversial international political issue.
