It is crucial for Israel to protect Jerusalem from every angle. Sometimes the attacks on Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem can be subtle. Sometimes they are political and sometimes technological. Sometimes it is deliberate and sometimes simply a mistake. Whatever the case, we must always be sure to protect the TRUTH about Jerusalem!

Google Maps ‘Crosses Country Borders’ in Jerusalem
Article Courtesy: Honest Reporting
An HonestReporting subscriber living in Jerusalem conducted experiments with various walking routes on Google Maps and discovered that the “country borders” warning was inconsistent over several routes that went through different gates of the Old City. This is indicative of a technical bug rather than a politically motivated policy on the part of Google.
We are pleased to say that as a result of our contacting Google Maps, the warning that the route “may cross country borders” no longer appears.
Thank you to Google for taking prompt action.
