The game show “Jeopardy!” has sparked outrage.
Alek Van Houghton: “Church, 200.”
Alex Trebek: “Built in the 300s AD, the Church of the Nativity. Katie?”
Katie Needle: “What is Palestine?”
Alex Trebek: “No. Jack?”
Jack McGuire: “What is Israel?”
Alex Trebek: “That’s it. And that takes you to $2,200. You’re still in third place, however, which of course means that you get to go first in double jeopardy.”
In fact, the Church of the Nativity is located in the Palestinian territory of the West Bank, which is occupied by Israel in violation of international law. Palestinian and human rights activists have called on “Jeopardy!” to apologize.
