NY: Israeli consulate pushes for J'lem to be part of Global Monopoly

The Israeli consulate in New York has launched a campaign for Jerusalem to be included in the new global version of the Monopoly board game currently being planned. The Hasbro Company has organized an Internet vote and the top 10 cities out of a list of 68 will feature in the new global Monopoly. Jerusalem is currently in 7th position and voting closes at the end of the month. The consulate is urging Israel supporters worldwide to log on at http://www.hasbro.com/games/kid-games/monopoly/ and vote for Jerusalem. Next month 2 separate cities will be chosen in a "wildcard" vote and the consul is planning a new campaign for Tel Aviv to be one of the two.
