Skype recognizes Region of Palestine


Perusing international calling rates on Skype the other day, I noted that “Palestine Region” is listed as one of the subcategories for Israel, along with “Jerusalem” and “Mobile”.

I’ve thus added the Skype designation to a handful of other conceptions of Palestine promoted by select entities across the globe:

  1. Skype: Palestine = region
  2. Various Latin American countries: Palestine = state with 1967 borders
  3. U.S. State Dept. website: Palestine = not an option in the box inviting you to “Select a Country or Other Area”
  4. Palestinian Authority: Palestine = negotiable
