That's very odd. I'd try calling them... There are quite a few folks blocking proxies these days. What I do is remove the via and forwarded for headers with the following command:
check_hostnames off
forwarded_for delete
via off

I realize this breaks the RFC, but lest be blocked if detected as a squid proxy. sux

There is only 1 client behind the IP address as it is a test server so something is going wrong with either routing or requests to google.
Google will not answer any emails.
I suppose one alternative is to use unbound in conjunction with squid and not redirect any requests to google?
