Czech publisher under fire for listing Jerusalem as capital of Israel in atlas by Sian Cain (The Guardian)

“A small Czech publisher has found itself embroiled in an international controversy, after one of its atlases listed Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The Czech newspaper Mlada fronta Dnes reported that the Palestinian ambassador to the Czech Republic, Khaled al-Atrash, had complained to the foreign ministry after local Palestinians showed him the atlas, which listed Jerusalem as the capital multiple times the text and on maps.”
