 A map of Israel with the inscription

Famous Swedish TV game show Free for All presented a map of Israel with the inscription “Palestine” next to the Palestinian flag.

The show aired on Swedish Channel 5. According to Ynet, participants were given a quiz about famous Swedish singer Laila Bagge Wahlgren, whose mother is Swedish and father is Palestinian.

The map was presented after participants were asked where Wahlgren's father was born . The map showed only Arab and mixed cities, as well as such ancient cities as Jerusalem, Jaffa, Haifa, Nazareth. In addition, Ramallah and Gaza were indicated on the map, but not Tel Aviv.

The Israeli Embassy in Sweden posted a poll on its Twitter account like a game show: “What should Channel 5 and the producer of the show, when they present a map without mentioning Israel? 1. Check the graphics. 2. Conduct additional research. 3. Apologize. 4. All of the above.

The game show producer apologized after posting. “It was a mistake, we'll fix it as soon as possible, I'm sorry,” he said.
