Issue:

The Gulf that borders Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Oman, in Western countries it is called Persian Gulf, in most Arab countries it is called Arabian GulfIn the 1960s, some Arab states started using the name Arabian Gulf. This is very controversial, and not commonly used outside of the Arab world, nor is it recognized by the United Nations and other international organizations. 

Belief:

However, Google Earth has started to use "Arabian Gulf" along with Persian Gulf in the latest version of Google Earth.

Arabs are not Persian it is identity and most of the coat around the Gulf are speaking arabic language,like the Gulf of Mexico the longest coast is Mexican, and so is Arab Sea Near Oman it is an identity, so I prefer Google to use ARABIAN GULF ONLY! ARABIAN GULF ONLY!

if they think it should be renamed to Arabian Gulf because they have more borders than Iran, then please someone tell me why the Indian Ocean is called so, while there are many countries around it with longer borders?!
Nothing is forever! That being said Arabs don't look the part and definitely don't deserve the credit.I think it still should be named Persian Gulf. Shah kicked Arabs asses and claimed the name and no Arab Yet has kicked or threatened successfully to claim otherwise.
just persian gulf.arabs people have no right about it.
