Iran:A petiton against Google Earth

More than 4000 people have already signed a petition against Google Earth. The petiton that says: “dear Administrators of Google Earth, we, the undersigned, through this letter, protest your irresponsible, unscientific actions, and demand an immediate and unconditional deletion of “Arabian Gulf” from Google Earth.”

    The recent irresponsible ridiculous name changed by Google Earth is unjustifiable and totally fake and as a result of political pressure. I strongly protest to Google Earth for this stupid action and demand an immediate and unconditional deletion of the fake self-invented name to its real name Persian Gulf.
