Apple cuts Third Initifada app after criticism

    Apple has removed an application glorifying Palestinian violence against Israel from its online store.

    The decision was made after an Israeli minister wrote to Steve Jobs urging him to drop the "Third Intifada" app, which was available for iPads and iPhones

    A spokesman said they had reviewed the application and now accepted that it violated developer guidelines "by being offensive to large groups of people".

    The free Arabic language offered users information about uprisings and encouraged them to take part.

    Yuli Edelestein, the Information Minister who alerted Apple to its contents, praised the technology company for taking "swift action".

    "This is another important step in preventing violent incitement in the new media," he said. Referring to the removal of an anti-Israel Facebook page earlier this year, Mr Edelstein added that Apple had now also proved that "it shared values that stand in opposition to violence, incitement and terror".
