I got an anonymous email just now from an unhappy HTC subscriber from Israel.

“I can’t contact HTC. It appears they’ve removed my country. I live in Israel, which is no longer listed on their support form.

Apparently Palestine still exists.

Signed,

Not happy! :-((((“

I’m guessing it’s an error of some kind, and likely not politically motivated. It’s 3AM for me right now, so my friend at HTC I could call on this is asleep, but I imagine I’ll hear from him tomorrow for confirmation.

While there may not be a grand Muslim conspiracy to exclude Israelis from getting tech support from HTC, it emphasizes how politics can always infiltrate everything. Hopefully they’ll get it fixed before it becomes an international incident.
