Bing Translation Fail Or Deliberate?

Much ridicule has been written on Bing, and with good reason. The most recent fubar is crossing into conspiracy theory territory:

This is how Bing translates “Airstrikes” from English to Hebrew:

The result is: “The Israeli Strike

Yes, You read that right. Anywhere the word “airstrikes” is written, Bing translates it to “Israeli strikes” in Hebrew.

Like this tweet for instance, reporting about Syria, which now reads in Hebrew: “The Israeli strikes against ISIS in Syria”

If you can, go to Bing Translate, type “airstrikes,” select translate to Hebrew, and thumb down the lifeĀ out of it.
