Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Q: Why is Jerusalem regarded as Israel's capital?
A: Israel declares Jerusalem to be its capital, just like any other nation state sets their capital. Israel's seat of government is in Jerusalem. However, the lack of international recognition is notable, hence the subtext was added "(limited recognition)" as the result of this RfC. For further information see Status of Jerusalem.

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 14 September 2019Edit

Please revert this edit. India is mentioned with more detail three paragraphs below, and this source does not mention India at all, it's only about China.--Grestoremarie (talk) 19:18, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

The lede to this article is a messEdit

There is too much history in the lede - and in the article itself. The lede should be short and relevant to the article, providing a summary of the contents. I will try to improve it.

You removed nearly everything related to the Arab-Israeli conflict and the occupation of Palestinian and Syrian territory. I do not disagree with tightening the lead, but removing anything negative is not that. nableezy - 15:32, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

“David’s Sling” not mentionedEdit

This missile system partially defends Israel – I think this info shouldn’t miss there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 176.199.144.109 (talk) 13:44, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
