Two things --> First I feel it's confusing that you have included Egypt here ... because isn't Egypt most accurately one of Africa's 54 countries? So you have Egypt showing up on maps twice ... and also you have Palestinian Territories here - which is actually NOT a country of it's own ... and if you were going to include lots of accurate dependencies or overseas territories, then why have you not included Puerto Rico? Galapagos Islands? Easter Island? Greenland? Faroe Islands? etc.

On some of your complete world map or world capitals Quizzes, there seems to be an agreement of 196 countries on the planet today. But then it seems like the individual maps should support these numbers. and having Egypt show up twice and including Palestine throw the total numbers off. Maybe you could have a different color/title for any lands that are included but that are not actual countries of the world (like French Guiana, etc.)....? thanks

This only includes Palestine because they have to include something in that area, and whatever they put would cause a riot in the comments, which it did. Also the Middle East is a region, like Scandinavia or The Balkans, except it is better know and has is a bit less defined. Some people include Iran or the Caucasus, even Sudan, Eritrea and Djibouti have made it in there sometimes.

Everyone is arguing that the terrorist run Palestinian Territories are a country when it isn't, whereas poor old Islamic State doesn't even get a mention. They've got their own flag, government, army, tax-raising powers and a multi-billion dollar oil business that they run entirely on their own. Surely if one bunch of bandits get a mention because they are autonomous then others should too.
+23
Level 84
Aug 6, 2016
This is a fair point. Islamic State has a much better claim to sovereignty than Palestine. But nobody has recognized them because they are hated by literally everyone. State recognition often has more to do with popularity, sympathy, and (of course) politics than actual real sovereignty.

However, that said, Palestine has a (disputed, fragmented) government, they have a flag, they collect some tax revenue and exercise some civic authority, to varying degrees in different unconnected places. What Daesh most notably has that "Palestine" lacks is control over their own borders and territory, and a stable and centralized undisputed government.

The ME is a region, not a continent. It may include countries from different continents, just like Latin America includes countries from both Americas and excludes others. The region is defined by political and ethno-religious historical ties. MENA is another example, which adds the rest of North Africa to the Middle East.

Comments that say Palestine is a country are considered political and get deleted, but comments that say Palestine is not a country are considered apolitical and get to stay.

That is not all, but if I elaborate, the chances this comment gets deleted go up to 100%.

Level 76
Jul 20, 2022
To quote a deleted comment by Jerry928, formerly one of the most liked comments on the whole site:

"There's nothing political about accepting reality, and the reality is that Palestine is recognised as a country by most (137 of 196; 70%) of the world's countries. That recognition level is far greater than Kosovo (108) or Taiwan (23). It also has UN observer status, which is the same UN status as Vatican City, unlike Kosovo and Taiwan, which have no UN status at all."

It had 120 likes. Now that it's deleted, many of the most liked comments are anti-Palestine, sometimes viciously so. Reading these comments gives a vastly skewed view of what this site's users actually overwhelmingly believe.

Regarding to the recognition of the UNO, which makes authority in these cases, Palestine is recognized as a country on its own since 2012, even though it isn't ranked as a member, but as a observator non-member, has the same status than Vatican, and then Cook Islands and Niue are in the same category. It depends on who you're looking at, UNO or Jetpunk, and in some cases as Palestine or Taiwan, the answer may be different.

The only thing I wanted to say before reading comments: It's now time to change... Turkey to Turkiye (at least in both orthographs).
