"SAN DIEGO - A map distributed in a language class at San Diego State University labeled Israel as Palestine, leading to an outcry from the local Jewish community.

Sources told Team 10 the map was handed out by a professor on the second day of class in an Arabic language course. Sources said students were upset and unsure how to protest the erroneous map because they feared speaking out publicly could have a negative impact on their grades.

One student talked with Team 10, on the condition of anonymity.

"I don't really believe it was the right place for dialogue," the student said. "It is a language class, it's not a class about conflict."

Students gave the map to the non-profit, pro-Israel San Diego group, "Stand With Us."

The group sent a newsletter to its members and urged the community to contact the department's chairman and Arabic program director. The group also posted the map to its Facebook page.

The electronic newsletter states the map "not only fails to label 'Israel' as a legitimate country," but that "it falsely portrays the entire territory of Israel as 'Palestine.'"

"I want to see an apology from the professor, and I want to see him to hand out a correct map," the student said.

Nicole Bernstein, of Stand With Us, questioned the department chair about the map, and she shared that response with Team 10.

The department chair said the professor used Palestine in place of Israel on the labels to "reflect the view of Arab-speakers in the region."

Also, the statement to the group said the language class professor intended to "have students get into groups and research the political developments of each area on the map, with the assumption that this would lead to a discussion of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the history of the state of Israel."

Near the end of the reply to the group, it said the professor would "distribute a map that includes labels for members of the Arab League as well as Israel."

Team 10 contacted SDSU late Tuesday morning with questions about the handout, and on Tuesday afternoon the school issued this statement:

"While SDSU encourages scholarly debate and discussion of varying opinions, presenting inaccurate information to students in not acceptable. SDSU's Provost has conferred with the department chair, who spoke with the faculty member. This inaccurate portrayal will not reoccur."

Bernstein said despite how it happened, it should not happen again.

"Whether it was intentional or not intentional, whether it was part of course work or part of a plan, none of that context was given," Bernstein said. "That is what the problem was."

Students and the group still want an apology from the professor.

“Regardless of the views, there are false images and realistic images,” the anonymous student said. “Bringing his own bias to the classroom was just not o.k.”

The United States does not recognize Palestine as a sovereign nation."

The Israeli Ministry of Defense raised some eyebrows when it sought prices for a product usually associated with pursuits more lusty than war. The request in question? A large supply of Viagra for Israel Defense Forces.

The news came from a published ministry tender seeking "1,200 tablets of 100 mg. sildenafil citrate, the active ingredient in Viagra," according to Haaretz. The pills were reportedly for soldiers with erectile dysfunction.

This request might've come as a surprise to some, considering the Israeli Army hasn't always been so accommodating to active duty soldiers seeking that certain pharmaceutical boost. In fact, Haaretz notes that in 2005, the Israeli Army banned members of its Air Force from taking Viagra before flights. This was following research, such as study from the Casey Eye Institute, linking viagra to ocular side effects, including inhibited color perception and blurred vision. Since then, Viagra has been investigated for potential performance enhancement effects, to mixed results.

The Defense Ministry declined to comment on the tender, citing privacy concerns.

Officials shouldn't feel embarrassed, though. After all, Israel is hardly the only country to offer medical help for soldiers experiencing sexual dysfunction. Indeed, the United States Department of Defense has spent lavishly on the cause. According to an investigation by Texas newspaper The Austin American-Statesmen, the DOD spent more than $380 million on erectile-dysfunction drugs between 2002 and 2012.

Likud is a terrorist organization, and by extension Israel is a terrorist nation, they will defend anything they do, no matter how horrific

Interestingly, after the "little" altercation in WB, and the palestinian chest puffin' of not attending the third round of peace talks. They quietly drove to the negotiations, sat their behinds down in chairs and talked. Furthermore, when they came out, Abbas was giving quite the positive interviews, as did the Israeli administration. I'm still quite positive, this will result in peace and more importantly, a Palestinian state.

Wishing for something does not increase its chances of happening. I totally want a long-term peaceful solution in the Middle East. I just think there are too many people who DON'T want it, and they are backed by nefarious forces in other countries.

I'll be so happy if I'm wrong.

Yup! I was thinking the same thing. G.Mitchell made it happened. Maybe Kerry will create another miracle.

Just think, think about the prospect of peace, how many benefits there are to both and even America!

The detractors of course are against it, and are up in arms that Abbas made such a statement.

I wonder though, since Gaza is hamas ruled. How would this peace apply to Gaza?

I'm not optimistic, but I would be more than pleased if things work out well.

I was remarking to Mrs. VA that there was also a time when people thought long term peace in Ireland was impossible, yet, it happened.

**Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he wants a negotiated peace agreement with Israel to include a clause stating that the conflict is officially over, Haaretz reported.

During a meeting with a delegation from the Israeli left-wing party Meretz in Ramallah on Thursday, Abbas said the Palestinian people want sovereignty and independence as well as peace in the region.

“People say that after signing a peace agreement we will still demand Haifa, Acre and Safed,” Abbas said. “That is not true. Signing the agreement will signal the end of the conflict.”

According to The Jerusalem Post, Abbas remains committed to a two-state solution that would involve the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital.

In 2012, Abbas won U.N. General Assembly recognition of a state of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem, The Associated Press reported. However, an official in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office said the Palestinians had promised to suspend their U.N. campaign during the peace negotiations.

Abbas also said that he wanted the final peace settlement to note that the Palestinian state would be demilitarized -- guarded by a police force rather than occupied by troops.

“We don’t need planes or missiles. All we need is a strong police force,” Abbas said. **

Despite all the skepticism, I remain optimistic. I have a feeling that this round of talks will end quite positively for all involved.
