Israel is NO MORE: it is now "Occupied Palestinian Territory".

Dear ICAN members,

I want to thank one of our members for bringing this to my attention.

A British science electronic Journal Nature, an International Science magazine on its map of the world, does not designate Israel as a country. The word "Israel" is replaced by the term "occupied Palestine." [No #34 on the map.] (Note -- This is not about West Bank...IT IS ALL OF ISRAEL)

On the page on the web site: it clearly states that magazine "acknowledges the support of the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences, which will help provide an Arabic translation of this content."
In an article focused on Islam and Science, they have a map of the world in which the State of Israel was replaced by the designation "Occupied Palestinian Territory" (#34).

It should be noted that this "journal" appears in many British libraries.

Noting the benefactors of this magazine, you may wish to give feedback to the editor at suggesting that by "eliminating" a member of the United Nations, the integrity of the magazine is clearly flawed and accuracy of the content cannot be trusted.
