It’s not only Arabic newspapers that refer to Tel Aviv as Israel’s capital, or dateline their stories from “The Zionist Entity” or “Occupied Jerusalem.”

The British paper The Guardian does not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state either, and has decided to anoint Tel Aviv as the capital of the State of Israel. In its “Corrections and Clarifications” section on Sunday, April 22, the newspaper published the following “correction”:

“The caption on a photograph featuring passengers on a tram in Jerusalem observing a two-minute silence for Yom HaShoah, a day of remembrance for the 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust, wrongly referred to the city as the Israeli capital. The Guardian style guide states: ‘Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel; Tel Aviv is’ (Eyewitness, 20 April, page 24).”
