and I know the new capital is technically Ngerulmud. Though I don't buy that it's a distinct city. Lots of less ambiguous things you could change it to like DH or UZ. If you want.

I was taught in school that Tel Aviv is the capital of Israel. Is Jerusalem officially the capital? (The world map has changed so much since I was in school in the 1960s that it's hard for me to keep up.)

If anything, the history of that era might have caused a change the other way, but no, Jerusalem has always been the capital of Israel since 1948. Tel Aviv is a highly populated business centre relatively far from strife, but is not the capital. Jerusalem is the location of the Knesset.

Only Israel considers Jerusalem as its capital. The rest of the world doesn't recognise it and there are no foreign embassies there. Any that were there moved to Tel Aviv in response to the Jerusalem Law in 1980 because Israel's occupation of East Jerusalem is considered illegal under international law. It's also not very helpful in negotiations over a two state solution, but I expect that was the idea.

Israel's occupation is not illegal. Embassies are simply in Tel Aviv because should Palestine ever gain recognition from the UN as a sovereign state, things would get a bit uncomfortable there, and ambassadors could be trapped. After all, there are many countries nearby with similar beliefs that refuse to allow much travel in or out, such as Pakistan. Jerusalem is, however, the capital, and would remain so under any of Israel's five proposed two-state solutions. All of which Palestine rejected, even though Israel was freely giving up vast swaths of land, on the basis that they refused to agree with Israel on anything.
