Ooh, they changed it. Now it says "BBC, I'm the capital of your mom"
 
2012-07-24 01:16:58 PM
The BBC has been penalized before for an anti-Israel bias. Some things never change.
 
2012-07-24 01:17:13 PM
Hmmm. Well, the Knesset is located in Jerusalem. Say what you will about the legality of the land usage/grab, but Israel is a real country and that is where they run their national government out of.

Would he have been happier if they listed Tel Aviv?

One of the few rules of nations is that you aren;t allowed to claim a city as a capital that doesn;t rightfully belong to you or half-belongs to someone else. This is why the capital of say, West Germany was moved from Berlin to Bonn during the cold war

BBC: "Tell you what, we'll list the capital where you say it is if you agree to stop listing the terrorists who bombed the King David hotel as national heroes."

Jesus, I understand your frustration but could you tone down the butthurt to about a 7?
 
2012-07-24 01:19:24 PM
That was a lot of butthurt condensed into one article. From Wikipedia: "The UN and most countries do not recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, taking the position that the final status of Jerusalem is pending future negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority"

You want a recognized capital? Negotiate, assholes.

Those are really more of guidelines then rules.

Hezbollah just wrote in to say there is no capital of Israel in fact there is no such country as Israel then Egypt seconded the motion.

Then why did East Germany keep their capital in Berlin?

Palestianian Authority? Shouldn't that be "Jordan?" I thought that's who they took it from way back when.

OK, so where's the capital of Tibet then?

Your example would make more sense if East Germany's capital had not been East Berlin.

For a nation virtually incapable of standing on its own feet, Israel sure talks a lot of smack.

The BBC has also been criticised for its pro-Israel bias. Must be doing something right.

As for the article, what a hissy-fit. You want international recognition for a "capital" that is internationally recognised as being occupied territory? Good luck with that.

I think Israel would do just fine for itself without the restraints of the UN.

Almost no one recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Author is a dolt.

I woudl be fine with this rational if they didn't list Palestine's capital as East Jerusalem (has sicne changed it to "intended seat of govt").

Painfully unfunny and forced humor over a minor slight. Prove this was less an error by some net geek and focused anti-semitism you idiot, otherwise you are no less a douche than you claim the BBC to be.
 
2012-07-24 01:29:38 PM
I can easily see how the BBC could arrive at such a conclusion. In purely economic terms the American Congress in Washington funds Israel, so they can't really be sure whether the Israeli capital is Jerusalem or Washington DC. They are just being cautious here.

But he's pro-Israel, so that makes the d-baggery all right.

Hahaha there is no butthurt like Israeli jew butthurt

Journalism is a serious field where the best reporters pay their dues for years to climb to the top of their profession.

Now THAT'S funny!

CIA World Factbook:

Capital: name: Jerusalem

note: Israel proclaimed Jerusalem as its capital in 1950, but the US, like all other countries, maintains its Embassy in Tel Aviv

ph0rk: focused anti-semitism


Isn't Israel largely made up of non-semetic Jews anyway? They need to find a more appropriate descriptor, given that Israel is the one proactively oppressing a group of semites in their territories.
 
2012-07-24 01:33:06 PM
The amount of butthurt was excessive for the given situation.
