Google Maps calls second holiest Jewish spot by its usurped Muslim name

I looked up the Maarat HaMachpelah, Hebron's Cave of the Patriarchs in Google Maps.  Here's what it found:
Muslims have been usurping Jewish holy sites from the beginnings of Islam. But there is no reason for Google to go along with it. 

Let's them call it the Ibrahim Mosque in Arabic, but it is an insult to Jews to make that the default name. 

UPDATE (September): Google now shows both names, not sure when it started. (h/t MN)
