Google Street View, launched five years ago in the United States and
subsequently introduced to Europe, Australia, Asia and parts of Africa,
has finally made its way to the Middle East. Israel became the region's first country added to the service, when
images of the Holy Land officially went up April 20. Although the
National Museum of Iraq in Baghdad is available on Street View, Israel
is the only country to show its streets and cities, which thus far
include Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa.
