Apple Pulls Intifada App [Breaking]

Apple has pulled the Third Intifada app at the request of an Israeli minister.

In what may be the quickest removal in iTunes history, Apple yanked the app just a day after Israeli Public Diplomacy Minister Yuli-Yoel Edelstein wrote to Steve Jobs saying the app “passed on information about protests, some violent, planned against Israel.”

We don’t know exactly when, but when we checked for it about an hour ago it was still there, racking up negative “ratings.”

Apple has not responded to our requests for comment or issued a press release on its website.

More to come.
