It isn’t the Arabian Gulf
Europe Gasoline/Naphtha-Margins slip as crude bounces
LONDON, June 22 (Reuters) – Gasoline refining margins slipped as Brent bounced on Wednesday, although a drop in gasoline inventories in the U.S. supported the market and outright prices in the region were higher.
“There’s no interest from the U.S. but the Mediterranean is busy,” said a gasoline broker, adding that refinery shutdowns in the Arabian Gulf and issues in Israel had boosted activity.
In this article Reuters has used the wrong and racist name of “Arabian Gulf” instead of the real name of the gulf which apparently is Persian Gulf.
Persian people all over the world are very concerned about that racist and fake name. Please correct that report/article as soon as possible to prevent making Persian people more upset.
I wondered when I read the named article using a fake word namely Arabian Gulf. Based on geographical and historical information there exists no such name hence, I assume author meant Persian Gulf.
I wanted to complain about current error and also to request to change the fake name to Persian Gulf.
I bet you’ve had history courses and know the right term for the PERSIAN GULF.
So don’t let Arabian dollars burn honesty and truth inside of you, and please respect the historical name of the Persian Gulf.
For more information, you can check Wikipedia to realize what the fact is.
We got lots and lots of comments on this one, all negative. We should not have used “Arabian Gulf.”
Our style for that body of water has long been, and remains, simply The Gulf: GBU Editor
