Unable to add release dates to films made in Israel  (Palestine) before 1948.

The reason for IMDB rejection: 

"The country Israel did not exist on/in 1919.
Please choose the appropriate equivalent country which did exist then instead."

but there is no option to choose Palestine (before 1948) as a Country.

e.g http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0153479/

Thanks

Hi YossiT -

Thanks for your report, I have reached out to our data editors to take a look as soon as they can (likely not until after the weekend).  Once I hear back from them I will post the information here.

Hi Michelle,

Is there a plan to solve the problem?

We need to be able to add/update  films made in Israel  (Palestine) before 1948.

Both in "Country of Origin" and  "Release Dates"

Thanks,

Yossi

Hi Col,

Something else on the same subject:

When trying to add Alternate Titles (AKA) in Hebrew to films made in Israel  (Palestine) before 1948 IMDB says:  "The country Israel did not exist on/in 1946".

We need option to add Hebrew titles to films that have made before the establishment of the State of Israel  (1948).

Thanks again,

Yossi
