Israel Asks Apple to Remove "3rd Intifada" Application -Herb Keinon
Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein sent a letter to Apple CEO Steve Jobs requesting the removal of an application called the "3rd Intifada" that gives information about protest activities, some of them violent, planned against Israel.
The same organization, Edelstein wrote, opened a Facebook page three months ago "calling for an uprising against the State of Israel by use of lethal force, while using hateful material based on wild and groundless accusations."
Facebook removed the page after it became convinced of the page's "harmful nature" and its potential of leading to the loss of life.
Apple Removes Intifada App -Nick Bilton
Apple removed "The Third Intifada" application from its App Store after a Jewish human rights group and a top Israeli official said it contained anti-Semitic content and promoted violence against Israel.
"We removed this app from the App Store because it violates the developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people," an Apple spokesman said.
