First the United Nations, now Google. On Thursday, the Palestine News Network noticed that the Internet giant had changed the tagline for the Palestinian edition of its search engine, Google.ps, from the “Palestinian Territories” to “Palestine.” The decision comes after a November vote by the U.N. General Assembly to recognize Palestine as a non-member state over the objections of Israel and the United States.
Here’s how Google.ps looked earlier this year, according to the Wayback Machine Internet archive. The gray words in Arabic below the word “Google” say, “Palestinian Territories.”

And here’s how the same page looks today, with the word “Palestine” instead:

The change is obviously a minor one, but within the context of the fraught politics of the Middle East, Google’s decision could be interpreted as a victory for advocates of Palestinian statehood who supported Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s recent decision to circumvent the long-stalled, U.S.-supported peace process with Israel.

Reasons to learn Arabic:

so I can fly to Lebanon and seduce Hamed Sinno in his native language

so I can understand Jihad and his family when they veer into Arabic asides

so I can understand the music

so I can read hummussexual’s blog

so I can watch Al-Jazeera

just because it sounds really cool tbh

Al-Jazeera is better in English. The Arabic one is crap. #JustSaying.
