Education company apologises for eliminating Israel
Garnet Education has issued an apology for its map depicting Israel as 'Occupied Palestine'
A reader of The Commentator has kindly sent in a response from Garnet Education, the publisher whose book erased Israel from a map of the Middle East. You can read about the original story here and here.
Below is a screengrab of the apology from Garnet Education:
The text reads:
Thank you for your recent email enquiry about the map that appears in Skills in English Writing - Level 1.
Unfortunately the map was mislabelled ‘Occupied Palestine’. This was a serious editorial error and was subsequently corrected. The book in question has not been in print for several years.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any offence caused but rest assured that this was a genuine mistake and in no way reflects any Garnet Education policy.
