Well, it seems that the new year has begun with the revelation that one of the United States’ largest corporate giants has engaged in blatant, extreme anti-Semitism, which apparently had gone unnoticed for several months in the US, as the company profited through sales to specific foreign target audiences of a publication that clearly and outrageously demonstrates their bigotry.
It was revealed by the Catholic publication The Tablet, in an article that appeared on New Years Eve, that HarperCollins, one of the “Big Five” of the world’s largest English-language publishing houses, in an atlas they published and aimed at a middle east market, has seen fit to omit the existence of Israel. Maps of the area where Israel “exists” instead show Jordan and Syria extending to the Mediterranean Sea, according to information in the Tablet article.
“HarperCollins regrets the omission of the name Israel from their Collins Middle East Atlas. This product has now been removed from sale in all territories and all remaining stock will be pulped. HarperCollins sincerely apologises [sic] for this omission and for any offence [sic] caused.”
The Tablet article reported that earlier HarperCollins’ atlases had only been allowed to be distributed in various middle east countries when Israel had been obliterated by hand from the pages of the book.
Rupert Murdoch: A Reassessment
|Oh, and by the way, did you know that HarperCollins is now a subsidiary, along with fox (fixed) news (noise), of Rupert Murdoch's NewsCorp.?

Just more food for thought concerning this disgusting and premeditated act,|
