I find stories like this frustrating. Despite the power it wields, Google is still not a nation. It is a company that endeavours to make as much money as possible.
So, by changing the website through which is makes money from Palestinians, isn’t safe to assume that the decision has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with appealing to that site’s customers?
Put another way, isn’t possible that Google saw an opportunity to make more money off of Palestinians by using the word “Palestine”?
