Gilo – Danny Ayalon shows the reporters around

With the kneejerk response to compain when any building occurs in places like Gilo, it is pleasing to see Danny Ayalon taking reporters to actually see the area – that it is a suburb of Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.

Which reminds me, over the weekend I was in Canberra – and looked at a book on football (soccer).  It was quite astounding to see that among pages on different football playing countries, the book named Tel Aviv as the capital of Israel.  Yes, countries may fall over themselves to be “even handed” and not have their embassies in Jerusalem, but for a football book to ignore the fact that Israel identifies its capital quite clearly as Jerusalem, and to instead say Tel Aviv is weird.
