"There has never been a 'Palestine' label on Google Maps," said a spokesman for Google.
Palestine, although recognized as a country by the United Nations, has never been on Google Maps. Instead of being demarcated with a solid line that denotes a country border, Google instead defines the Gaza Strip and the West Bank with a dashed border - the mark it uses to outline disputed territories.

How is this anti west? Just because the article doesn't kiss Israels ass doesn't mean it's anti west. Also Google is wrong it is not disputed territory it is recognized internationally that Israel's occupation of Palestine is an illegal occupation there is no dispute over that. So Google needs to get off their butts and put Palestine back where it belongs.

In a March 1977 interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw Zuheir Mohsen said:
“Between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese there are no differences. We are all part of ONE people, the Arab nation. Look, I have family members with Palestinian, Lebanese, Jordanian and Syrian citizenship. We are ONE people. Just for political reasons we carefully underwrite our Palestinian identity. Because it is of national interest for the Arabs to advocate the existence of Palestinians to balance Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian state is a new tool to continue the fight against Israel and for Arab unity.”
Zuheir Mohsen is not the only one admitting that Palestinians are a fake and created people. Created by a terrorist organization from the inception of the new Israel. The same admission was openly blurted out by Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security Fathi Hammad on Egypt TV on March 23, 2012, where Fathi Hammad admitted that Palestinians were actually from neighboring Arab countries: “Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis”. Because Palestinians are a terrorist creation, Arab nations refuse to give residency to those who now want to leave Gaza and second generation “Palestinians” that are now born in “Palestine”, while they openly use the conflict as a tool to perpetrate Jew hate and propaganda

This is a legitimate question, as I've never understood it completely - who was there before Israel was created? I don't mean hundreds or thousands of years ago. I mean, the land that is now Israel proper and the occupied territories - what country/countries and people was/were there in the 19th and early 20th centuries?
It wasn't empty, it wasn't Israelis, what territory was taken and given to Israel? And what previous country were the occupied territories part of?
