What is the Capital of Israel?

Post  Guest on Sat 21 Jul - 10:19

According to the BBC, it doesn't have one, even although all other 49 countries do. In fact even Palestine has a Capital (it's East Jerusalem) despite the fact that it's not even an official country!

Here you go,

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/2012/countries/israel and http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/2012/countries/palestine

Apparently Israel (despite being a proper, UN recognised country since 1948) has something called a "seat of government", "though most foreign embassies are in Tel Aviv." For the record, Jerusalem has been the official capital city of Israel since 1949.

Now I don't want this thread to end up as an Israel/Palestine debate, because it's not. It's about the BBC not reporting proper facts, when it doesn't suit them. And they have the bloody nerve to put "Key facts" at the top!

This is political bias, pure and simple, permeating into sport. I believe that the Israeli Government have now made an official complaint, and I don't blame them. It will be interesting to see the reaction of the BBC, they'll probably get Jeremy Bowen in to sort it all out

And if the BBC blatantly lie about something like this, what other lies are they telling us???

There have been a lot of complaints from viewers about the way the BBC has been reporting daily on the Olympics and reporting the Syria crisis.

Well, at the risk of turning it into an Israel/Palestine debate, they don't seem to report the daily firing of missiles from Gaza and from South Lebanon into Israel.

I never watch the BBC news these days they are so biased in their reporting. I always watch ITV news now. I find them rather more realistic and truthful
