it should also accept massad. Since it is a Hebrew word it doesn't have an official english spelling, so that one is controversial.

Yes that's a tautology. The Gaza strip is the Gaza strip. Okay. But... then is it not also Palestinian?

Thank you for the quiz! However, could I have one suggestion? I do think the answer to the Nobel Prize question should be ammended. Two Israelis received it that year - Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres. And also the third recipient, Yasser Arafat, was Israeli-related. And of course, all three of them were awarded for negotiating the Oslo Agreements which enabled (at least for some time) the peace process. I think all three names, or at least Rabin and Peres, should be required as the correct answer.

Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin all won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994. Someone should make another Israel trivia quiz.

Two changes: could you add 'June War' and 'October War' since that is how the Six-Day War and Yom Kippur War are generally described by Arabs and their allies in English? And please do add Shimon Peres to the Nobel answer, even if you don't add Arafat. I wasted lots of time on lots of permutations of Peres' name... Nice short quiz!

Yesterday Hamas announced to the world that, while it would not make a single meaningful change to its charter, they have decided that due to their inability to accomplish anything militarily they would make some superficial changes to wording and see if it was politically expedient to appear less overtly racist.

Wow! Someone contributing to JetPunk admits that Jerusalem as the capital is disputed. It's a start.

Yeah, I mean, why should a country get to choose its own capital?

Why exactly should it be disputed? Jerusalem is the capital! It has been since 1950! This would be like saying that Washington as the capital of USA should be disputed.
reply

May 2, 2017
(69)
No, it wouldn't. Nobody disputes that Washington is the capital of the United States. Though I don't agree with those who feel that Jerusalem is not a part of Israel, they are disputing that Jerusalem is the capital because they don't recognize Israel's control of the territory. So it is more like saying that Crimea is part of Russia (disputed).

It's more like saying that Seoul is part of South Korea (disputed) because North Korea doesn't recognise them...but that's only because North Korea and South Korea hate each other so much they each wish the other one didn't exist.

It WAS. Thanks to the British basically establishing the country. In the 1940s there were 3 official languages in Israel: English, Hebrew, and Arabic. Nixing English as an official language was one of the first things the new country did. I believe that this was because they knew if they did not, then English would become the lingua franca, and that's something they didn't want happening because they were endeavoring to revive a dead language (Hebrew). They actually went really out of their way to avoid using English on signage, packaging, etc. I found Israel is one of the hardest places I've been to get trying to read just English. And it worked, Hebrew is again a living, breathing language with millions of native speakers after being dead for thousands of years. As a linguist I find this incredibly impressive.

Anyway long story short: English is definitely not an official language. Many Israelis don't speak it and it hasn't had official status since 1948 I believe.
