Seraphym sent me this little note:
Try this fun little exercise:
Copy and paste these lines of text into Google (separately, that is):
"United Nations condemns Israel"
"United Nations condemned Israel"
Lots of links, right?
Then try these:
"United Nations condemns Hamas"
"United Nations condemned Hamas"
"United Nations condemns Fatah"
"United Nations condemned Fatah"
Enjoy the "No Results Found" hilarity.
So, I decided to try it by randomly selecting "United Nations condemned Hamas". You were wrong, Seraphym. My search resulted in many links. Just see for yourself:
Of course, all the search results are the United Nations condemning the killing of Hamas members by Israeli forces... but why get nick picky? ;)
(BTW, for fun, I googled "United Nations condemned killing of Israeli", but there were no results.)
Thanks for the comment, Seraphym. It was an interesting, if not disturbing, experiment.
Update [Brian]: I've linkified all of those searches for faster reference. It's an interesting illustration, although I would point out in fairness that "United Nations condemns Palestinian" returns a significant number of results. Some of the results are laughable, but they are there. Just not in the terminology listed above.
