Bing Translation of "Daesh" the Arabic acronym for a global terrorist group backed by Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to "Saudi Arabia" has put the Microsoft Corporation in hot water with the Kingdom .

Apparently, when the Arabic word "داعش” (Daesh) was typed into Bing Translate, the words "Saudi Arabia” would appear as the English translation, according to Khaberni.

The so-called technical error caused an uproar in Saudi Arabia, where many Saudi social media users called for a boycott of Bing and Microsoft.

The Microsoft Corporation has formally issued an apology to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, calling the error "unintentional”.

The fact that Wahhabi Islam (an extremist, misogynistic, perverted form of Islam) is state funded and promoted in Saudi Arabia basically makes 'Saudi Arabia' synonymous with 'Daesh'. They're angry because Bing actually did something correctly for once. And they want to boycott Microsoft? Have fun with that one - I think it's a safe bet to say that at least a large part of computer-related infrastructure is built using Microsoft products. Let them.

Because Wahhabism hasn't been creating them and other terrorists for a hundred years? How can they be upset by this?
