YMCA erases Israel off the map
The Tampa Bay Primer (www.tampabayprimer.org) reports that the YMCA has printed out a T-Shirt with a list of countries where one may find a YMCA presence. The only problem: they leave out Israel (even though there's a YMCA in Jerusalem - I was there) and include "Palestine" (a region that is not a country):
Which country is missing on a YMCA T-shirt?
If you donate any money to YMCA, please stop - find an alternative. Let them know the reason: they can't just erase Israel off the map and list a non-existing country without consequences (see the Palestine page for details).
