Ideology trumps reality

The Guardian de-corrects:

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 point of fact, Israel’s capital is in Jerusalem. All the branches of Israel’s government are headquartered there. But for ideological reasons, the Guardian doesn’t want Israel’s capital to be in Jerusalem, so they report that the capital is in some other city where in fact it isn’t. Simply bizarre.
