Monopoly Enters Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
STEVEN INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
The makers of Monopoly waded into Middle East politics and went directly to jail. The company is creating a world edition of its game. Instead of streets on the board there will be cities like Paris, France or Jerusalem, Israel -Jerusalem, Israel. Pro-Palestinian groups protested so the company made it just Jerusalem. Then more people complained because that was the only city without a country. So now all nations have been removed. It's MORNING EDITION.
