Israel Targets iTunes App that Calls for 'Armed Uprising'

PRNewsFoto/Apple(JERUSALEM) -- Israel recently won a fight with Facebook to remove a pro-Palestinian group that preached violence, and now the country is asking Apple to make some changes to its iTunes store.

Israel is going after the computer giant for an application called "Third Intifada." The country's information minister sent an email directly to Apple CEO Steve Jobs urging him to immediately remove the free application, which he says calls for an intifada -- or armed uprising -- against Israel. The Israeli official said that the articles, opinions, and photos on the application convinced him that it was being used as an instrument to incite violence.

Apple has not responded to the Israeli request.
