London’s Foreign office says Israel’s claim that that Jerusalem is its capital is not recognized by the U.K.
A complaint leveled against the Guardian over Israel’s capital city was decided in favor of the British newspaper.
In correcting a photo caption that had referred to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the newspaper wrote that “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.’ ”
In its decision issued Sunday, the Press Complaints Commission said that:
“While it is correct to say that Israel classes Jerusalem as her capital city, this is not recognized by many countries and those nations enjoying diplomatic relations with Israel have their embassies in Tel Aviv. As such, the Commission was of the view that the newspaper was entitled to refer to Tel Aviv as the capital of Israel. There was no breach of the Code in this instance.”

As a Norwegian I will refuse to accept London as the capital of United Kingdom. Because thousand years ago, Northern England was ruled by the Vikings. They kept York as their “holy city” al-quds.
Who deciders the capital of United Kingdom today?
The Vikings, the Muslims or the United Nations?
Since there was no Tel Aviv as recently as 1908 A.D, how can this city be the capital of anything, decided by United Kingdom?
The United Kingdom was them selves a occupying power of Israel, and they used Jerusalem as their colonial capital.
Can the United Nations force a capital on the sovereign state of Israel?
London has become the department of dirty tricks.
The view of the British government exposes an totalitarian attitude, is their bid to force Israel to abandon their capital, and give it back under Islamic occupation.
On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.
Shame on all who support Islam in their jihad against Israel.
