WE must be grate­ful to the Guardian for help­ing to lift Is­raelis out of a delu­sion they have labour­ing un­der for more than 60 years.

The pa­per pub­lished a cor­rec­tion this week, say­ing that a few days ago it had “wrongly re­ferred” to Jerusalem as the “Is­raeli cap­i­tal” in a photo caption about Yom Hashoah. Ac­cord­ing to the Guardian’s style guide, “Jerusalem is not the cap­i­tal; Tel Aviv is.”

I’d bet­ter amend our of­fice edi­tion of the Times World At­las (from 1998) which also lists Jerusalem as Is­rael’s cap­i­tal.
