Israel demands Apple to remove iTunes’ Intifada app

22 Jun 2011

(MENAFN) Israel’s Public Diplomacy Minster, Yuli Yoel Edelstein, said that he sent a letter to Apple’s Inc. CEO, Steve Jobs, asking him to remove the Arabic language application from the company’s iTunes store that called for a Palestinian Intifada (Uprising), reported Arabian Business.

Edelstein added that the application, called the Third Intifada, was founded to send information about protests and violent planned actions against Israel, in addition to a stream of news stories and editorials in Arabic which includes links to nationalistic Palestinian videos and songs.

He also said that three months ago, the founders of the application opened a similar page on Facebook calling for an Intifada in occupied Palestine against Israel; nevertheless, the Israeli side complained to the network and made it remove the page.

It is worth noting that US attorney Larry Klayman filed a lawsuit against Facebook and its co-founder Mark Zuckerberg last month for more than USD1 billion over the ‘Third Palestinian Intifada’ page, claiming the site had failed to remove the page quickly enough.
