Google Palestine is NOT the bomb

Coincidence, poor decision making or just plan stupidity? You decide.
Well, at least they are acknowledging Palestine 😉

That Google Bomb Electromagnet Doodle Might Not Go Over So Well On Google Palestine. Wait, There’s a Google Palestine?

The doodle for today’s Google logo might give a new meaning to the term “Google bomb.” While it is not actually a drawing of a bomb—it is an electromagnet in celebration of the birth of its inventor Hans Christian Ørsted—a lot of people might mistake it for a bomb. It has a wire and a clock timer (Update that’s actually a compass) and that magnet kind of looks like a stick of dynamite.

For most of the world, it is just another quirky Google doodle. But for people in Palestine, it might just seem in poor taste. Especially since this is one of the first things they are seeing on the new Google Palestine domain. Yes, there is now a separate domain for Google Palestine, it just launched yesterday. Welcome, Palestine!

Yeah, Google might want to try for a different doodle there.

  2. Oh,why the hell do you love9or heart)Hamas?!!
    I’m a Palestinian and I hate Hamas,Hamas is in no way a representative of Palestine or the Palestinians

  3. It’s a title: it’s supposed to provoke discussion and debate. There is some irony involved. If you want to know more, please come to the show and find out.

  4. If only others would follow Googles lead!
