Twitter Storm: Can You Share "What is Palestine?"

On Friday January 10, 2020, on Jeopardy!, Katie Needle correctly answered the clue “Built in the 300s A.D., the Church of the Nativity” with “What is Palestine?” But host Alex Trebek responded “nope” and instead told Jack McGuire, who answered, “What is Israel?” that his response was correct—but IT WAS NOT

Tonight, Monday, January 13, at 7:30pm EST as Katie Needler reappears on the show as a contestant, join the Twitterstorm to tell Jeopardy! to issue an apology and correction.

Use these sample tweets and images:

    The right answer is Palestine or Occupied West Bank of Palestine. As an example; one never heard of an occupied location such as in Germany or Japan being considered in the USA following WWII. Unfortunately it is likely the Jeopardy answer was politically motivated.

    Stop being a Gate Keeper Jeopardy. Very disappointing in getting this question wrong. Palestine exists. Denying it does not wipe it off the map, or convey any truth. Man up Alex, and set the record straight.

    They deny Palestine, but I read in the Old Testament that it exists.

    Alex, I’m almost as big a fan of Jeopardy! as I am of justice, having served the Church in Palestine for years. What is truth, Alex?

    Many in Israel and the MSM openly accuse Israel’s perceived adversaries of wanting to “wipe Israel off the map.” I submit that The state of Israel and it’s US domestic supporters such as AIPAC have done the very thing they purport to fear most to Palestine. Couple this with 36 US states passing anti-BDS laws that demand that federal employees and contractors sign a loyalty pledge not to oppose the state of Israel or lose their livelihood; the smearing and sabotage of Jeremy Corbyn as an anti-Semite, I’d say it’s high time the Left Boycott, Divest and Sanction the Apartheid state before we all become Palestine in our own land.

    That Church is in Palestine as any tourist can tell you since you have to go through a massive checkpoint to get to it.
