Tech erred in labeling E. Jerusalam as Israel

To the Editor:

I object to your inclusion of the photographs labeled "Dome of the Rock," "At the Damascus Gate," and "Village south of Jerusalem" under the title "Israel" in your issue of Friday, Feb. 17. These scenes are not from Israel, but rather are from Occupied East Jerusalem. True, Israel annexed East Jerusalem in 1967, but this annexation has not been recognized by either the United Nations or the United States. Until the fate of the occupied territories is determined, labeling the disputed areas as part of Israel only demonstrates The Tech's ignorance or bias towards Israel's claims.
