Following the BBC’s refusal to recognize the capital of the Jewish state, members of the Israeli Olympic team prepared a video last week in which they say they are proud to represent Israel “and its capital Jerusalem.”

On its website listing of countries participating in the London Olympics, the BBC had listed “East Jerusalem” as the capital for the Palestinian Olympic team, but listed Israel without a capital.
