Busted! HarperCollins Bows to Islam – Omits Israel from School Atlas

“However, Collins Bartholomew, the subsidiary of HarperCollins that specialises in maps, said that including Israel would have been ‘unacceptable’ to their customers in the Gulf and the amendment incorporated ‘local preferences’.” This is the norming of Islamic Jew-hatred. This kowtowing to “local preferences” — preferences for genocide and Jew-hatred — is a symptom of the increasing acceptability of the anti-Semitism in the West, as Western countries bow and capitulate to their Muslim populations.

“HarperCollins omits Israel from school atlas,” the Telegraph, December 31, 2014 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):

HarperCollins, one of the world’s largest publishing houses, sells English-language atlases to schools in the Middle East that omit Israel.

Collins Middle East Atlases show Jordan and Syria extending to the Mediterranean but do mark the position of the West Bank.

“The publication of this atlas will confirm Israel’s belief that there exists a hostility towards their country from parts of the Arab world. It will not help to build up a spirit of trust leading to peaceful co-existence,” said Bishop Declan Lang, the chairman of the Bishops’ Conference Department of International Affairs, to The Tablet….

However, Collins Bartholomew, the subsidiary of HarperCollins that specialises in maps, said that including Israel would have been “unacceptable” to their customers in the Gulf and the amendment incorporated “local preferences”.

The Tablet said it had discovered the customs officers in one unnamed Gulf country only permitting the import of school atlases once Israel had been deleted by hand.

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 for this omission and for any offence caused.

HarperCollins isn’t the only ones doing things like this and when busted over it issue a statement of “regret.” In 2013, Scholastic removed Israel completely from the maps in its textbooks. Unlike FreedomOutpost, these businesses have numerous sets of eyes on everything and though there may be slight errors that get through, these should hardly be considered anything of that nature. The regret is that they got caught.
