A funny thing happened on the way to Delta removing “Occupied Palestinian Territories” from its website. They did…but they also didn’t.
The Delta saga continues… *sigh*
- 3 days ago, I posted DeltaGate Part Deux: This Time It’s Political
- Later that day, according to commenter sam on Israellycool and commenter Juda Engelmayer on Jumping the Zionist Shark, as well as Shurat Hadin, Avi Mayer, David Haivri & Ben Hartman on Twitter, Delta removed the word “Occupied”.
- Also today, according to Dr Mike Cohen on Twitter, Delta removed the remaining “Palestinian Territory” from that page.
So… I guess this means victory is ours, right? Right?
Yeah, not so much. This is that same Delta SkyMiles web page, as of about an hour ago, and still the same as I click the publish button. As I’ve been saying for a while on the original Israellycool post, on my blog, and on Twitter, when you click on the words “Middle East” on the “Within Middle East” box at the top of the mileage award chart below, it brings up an internal popup window that still says “Occupied Palestinian Territory”.
So which is it, Delta? Make up your mind, so we can get this over with already. There are other, more interesting things I’d like to write about, but since I started this, I feel like I have to see it through to the bitter end.
UPDATE: I Think You Forgot About Clearing Your Browser’s Cache, Zionist Shark
Epic Fail Is Mine!
On Friday, Israellycool commenter Brian Goldfarb pointed out that he wasn’t seeing what I was seeing, asking whether he was missing something. To answer your question, Brian, no you weren’t missing anything; I was. After reading Brian’s comment, I did something I should have done before posting this – I cleared my browser’s cache. This time, when I went back to the website, those words were gone.
So while my original post was valid, this one was not. Mea Culpa.
