Apple Cuts ‘Jew or Not?’ App in France

The Apple corporation has removed a mobile application called “Jew or Not?” from its online App Store in France. The iPhone application is intended to allow the user to consult a database of public personalities and celebrities to determine whether or not they are Jewish.

SOS Racisme, a French non-governmental organization (NGO), filed a formal complaint with the company, according to the Associated Press, and threatened to sue the firm if it was not removed. The app violated French laws protecting citizens’ rights to privacy and banning compilation of their personal information, including religion, without consent, the complaint stated.
