Where on earth is Israel?

Noticed anything strange about Google World?

A JC reader saw that there were a few crucial little details missing from the site which gives satellite maps of the world . Although almost the entire planet is covered by Google, there is one important exception - Israel.

Whereas other countries have all major cities highlighted, Israel has nothing but a dotted line to separate it from the Territories.

There are two possible explanations. Either the maps have been removed because of reports that Palestinian terror groups have used them to help target Israel. Or maybe they just don't like us.
Unfortunately, despite repeated phone calls, Google has failed to tell us which it is.
