No capitals please, we're israeli
Sad to see the Guardian caving in to "litigation jihad" (or whatever that is in Hebrew) from the US Israel lobby whiners at "Honest Reporting".
If Tel Aviv isn't the capital, then clearly the BBC was right to omit a Israeli capital altogether from its Olympic website. Because Jerusalem isn't, never was, and never will be, the capital of Israel. Originally none of it (not even the West part currently in Israel) was supposed to be Israeli territory at all: it was designated as an international protectorate. But then, in what would become a familiar procedure, Israeli terrorists simply occupied it and threw out the residents. After occupying the rest of the city (only throwing out some of the residents this time) in 1967 the Israeli government declared Jerusalem to be its capital. The United Nations, reasonably enough, pointed out that it is conventional for countries to have capital cities which are in the country whose capital they supposedly are, and told the Israeli government to get on its bike.
So now it's not so much "a land without people for a people without a land" as "a land without a capital for a people without a clue". Perhaps we should all start referring to it as "israel": if they don't want a capital, we should decapitalise them.
