Palestinians are calling on an Israeli wine company to change the labels on bottles of wine released for the turn of the millennium because they contain a picture of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. Muslim leaders say the picture is offensive because under their religious laws, Islamic sacred places should not be associated with alcohol. The owner of the Tishbi Estate Winery said he had not considered the politics of the issue when he approved the label.
