Urban Dictionary community adds ‘israeled’ as the new internet slang

  • December 26, 2023

A new verb, ‘Israel,’ has been included in the popular crowdsourced online dictionary, Urban Dictionary, bringing up both interest and controversy on social media. The word is defined as when a person claims something that belongs to someone else as their own, similar to theft.

The meaning gives an example of how the word is used by talking about someone who wants to share a table at a coffee shop but then asks the person who is already there to leave because they have a meeting.

A user named Sarah Wilkinson shared the screenshot of the new definition on her X (formerly Twitter) account yesterday. It has already gotten a lot of attention, with over 41,000 views so far.
