    Think that the BBC are assuming that Jerusalem is in all our hearts and that we are all Jews in spirit…so to confine it to a geographical location only shows our willingness to limit and constrain the Judeo-Christian ideal!
    Either that or the wondrous Daniel Corbett took their geography atlas!
    Only wish they`d produce a map of where Irans nuclear sites are sited.
    Always get the idea that Bowen, Plett, Guerin know only too well.

    Not even West Jerusalem, internationally recognised as part of Israel even if there’s some international dissention about the east of the city.

    Did you know that the BBC doesn’t think”

    Of course, based on what it knows it’s doing only too well,  it’s how it acts that is the problem.

    You have to wonder who makes these decisions. According to the BBC it maintains Middle East bureax in Amman Jordan, Cairo Egypt, Gaza Middle East, Jerusalem Israel and Tehran Iran. So they maintain three bureaux withing a two hour drive from each other! That rather explains the paucity of reporting from North Africa and the obsession with Gaza, doesn’t it?

    Its outside of London . Why the heck would a BBC person know where another place is ?

    I checked a few other sites, and all the global weather sites will find either Israel and suggest Jerusalem, a few that seach on city find Jerusalem straight away.
    However, the Met office seems to share the BBC’s inability to report the weather in Jerusalem. Definitely bias!
