It sounds like to me that this has nothing to do with Google, and the case should be thrown out. Although one has to question why Google will not remove information it has been told is inaccurate. Wouldn't a company want to provide its users with correct and trustworthy information, not say "we know it's wrong, but we're not going to remove it because we don't care and we didn't write it". --Nzgabriel | Talk 03:16, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Google as a media edit
Google is here to provide a platform on which users can distribute information. Investigating wheter this information is true or not, is not the purpose of Google. It is the responsability of the user, to be aware of this when surfing Google's user generated content. As long as the user generated content doesn't violate any law, it can be published.
Israelies are always hateful of the truth edit
It's just the way Israelis behave, they like to scare people by claims they fabricate for their own benefit. The truth is "Jews (later called: Israelis) scared Palestinians out of their land way before the establishment of the "state of Israel" so the point they raise that Arabs left their land in 1948 is not accurate, Palestinians were expelled from their villages/towns since the start of jews immigration to Palestine. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:28, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Aim a nuke at that Israeli village, and one at the Palestinian making the claim, and give them each a week to either prove their claim or admit they're lying. They'll figure it out. -22.214.171.124 22:33, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
I feel that suing Google was a bit extreme in this situation. However, there is an important point to be made in this case: not everything found on the internet can be considered true. In fact, most of the information found is bound to be biased in some way, and sources should always be considered. This is true about any documented information, but aplies mostly to internet baised information because of the lack of editing and censership. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:39, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
Too funny edit
This is gold... another typical exagerated bogus claim by non-native conquerors of a previously peaceful (comparatively) land and persons. Another attempt to squeeze the solidified liquidless sponge dry of every nano-cent of a dollar it may have.
I wonder if they'll claim as much as some are against Germany for world war II ($186 trillion). Oh and i like that Nukes-test comment. That would surely determine the question. I guess you could use one of the 100s of Nukes Israel "does not" posses...
