maale adumim is not in Israel

Reader comment on item: Pretending There's a Country Called "Palestine"

Submitted by Emmanuel P (Canada), Mar 14, 2008 at 19:04

It is indeed incorrect of Facebook to list Maale Adumim as being in Palestine, as there is no internationally recognized country called Palestine. By the same token, it would be incorrect to list it as being in Israel, since no legitimate international body recognizes the West Bank as being a part of Israel. Facebook should list Maale Adumim as being in "West Bank," or more accurately yet they could list it as being in "Israeli Occupied West Bank."
