Revisionist history on Google Maps regarding Jerusalem

Reader comment on item: What Jewish Ties to Jerusalem?

Submitted by Joe Example (United States), Jun 20, 2006 at 20:14

Google just updated their Maps system for not just the US, but the world too. Go here for a zoomed in look at the Temple Mount / Haram-al-Sharif: http://www.wikimapia.org/#y=31777550&x=35235826&z=17&l=0&m=a After you pick up your jaw which I'm sure fell in astonishment, do the following: Single-click in the white box surrounding the image of the Temple Mount / Haram-al-Sharif; a little box with the words "show info" listed will appear. Single-click on it to bring up the info window. You'll see that the - as of this writing - fourth version describing the history of the Temple Mount / Haram-al-Sharif talks all about Islam's involvement with Jerusalem and practically nothing on Judaism's involvement. Any techies who know how to fix this mess?
