Jerusalem -The Capital of Israel?

02 August 2012, 12:47
Who's capital is Jerusalem? Is Jerusalem even a capital of any country or is the city an international city? Why does the United Nations not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel? So many questions, but why is Jerusalem not recognized as a capital?
In recent news, the BBC has used its classical move of propaganda, Anti-Semitic and racial tactics to try to destroy the State of Israel by not mentioning the capital of Israel on its own website, but rather calling the 'Seat of Government -Jerusalem, though most foreign embassies are in Tel Aviv.'

What is the 'Seat of Government'? The Seat of Government is where the government is situated and where the government is situated, that city is the capital. So why not just say 'Capital - Jerusalem', just like all the other countries listed on their website?
'...though most foreign embassies are in Tel Aviv', this tells us that Tel Aviv is the most stable and populated city, but does not mean that Tel Aviv is the capital. The reason for Tel Aviv not to be the capital is because the Government, Bank of Israel and Supreme Court are not in Tel Aviv but rather in Jerusalem. When you ask people on the streets in Tel Aviv, where is the capital? Their answer is Jerusalem.

Jerusalem has always been the heart and soul of Israel and where the two holy temples, on temple mount, once stood. It is the place where King David called Jerusalem, the capital of the Kingdom of Israel and today the Jews still call Jerusalem the capital of Israel. Jerusalem will and always be the capital of Israel, not matter what outside interference say. Jerusalem is mentioned some many times in the Bible that no wander the Jews call Jerusalem its capital.

How would you like South Africa's capital not mentioned but rather said: Seat of Government: Cape Town, though the administrative Seat of Government is in Pretoria, though the judicial Seat of Government for the Supreme Court of Appeal is in Bloemfontein.
So which city is the capital of South Africa?

The ANC arena has become messy beyond understanding. When people are in such mess, they tend to think they are untouchable as the mess creates a sort of barrier around them. Read more...

Yes, by 2019 quotas can have a major impact on the performance of the Springboks. If half of the World Cup squad must be made up of players of colour and their selection is not based on merit, then I agree. Read more...
