Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Some countries have multiple capitals; often one city is the seat of government while the other is the legal capital. Some Kyoto natives also argue that Tokyo and Kyoto are both capitals of Japan at present; see Capital of Japan. Israel designates Jerusalem as its capital, and seats its government in that city. However, until Jerusalem's political status reaches a final settlement, most countries as well as the United Nations recognize nearby Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv served as the temporary de facto capital of Israel from May to December 1948. The Palestinian National Authority also claims Jerusalem as the capital for their future Palestinian state; but currently the de facto seat of the internationally-recognized Palestinian government is in Ramallah, while the seat of the Hamas-led government is in Gaza City.show more
