UK Media Watch prompts Guardian correction to claim Tel Aviv is Israeli capital

not tel aviv

This morning, we contacted Guardian editors and argued that the passage falsely suggests that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital. We noted that, in 2012, the Guardian was forced to acknowledge that it is wrong to state that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital, and that their style guide was updated to note that – regardless of the international community’s views on the status of the city – Jerusalem is the seat of government.

So, you think BDSers would end their campaign if Israel left the West Bank? Think again.

In their cold disregard for the lives of Palestinians and Arab Israelis, BDS has effectively adopted the new radical left version of the Vietnam War sentiment that ‘sometimes you have to burn the village to save it’ – a phrase accurately reflecting the mindlessness, nihilism and destructiveness of those singularly obsessed with isolating, delegitimizing and punishing the Jewish state.
