Travel Site Booking.com No Longer Refers To Yerushalayim As An ‘Israeli Settlement’

0

The online travel reservation service Booking.com has erased its categorization of Yerushalayim as an “Israeli settlement” after being contacted for questioning by a Belgian Jewish newspaper.

Booking.com, which is based in Amsterdam, made the change on Tuesday, just hours after the editor in chief of the Antwerp Joods Actueel newspaper wrote to the company, asking why it refers to the historic, ancient city as a “settlement.”

“I thought it was a hoax until I checked it out and saw it with my own eyes,” said Michael Freilich, after receiving a tip from a reader.

Yerushalayim is now in Israel on the Booking.com website.
