Jerusalem stateless on new Apple operating system

Apple’s new iOS 7 operating system, like its predecessor, lists Jerusalem without a country.

Jerusalem is one of three cities to be listed in the world clock without a country, the Blaze reported this week. The others are Vatican City and Taipei, Taiwan.

The iOS 6 operating system’s world clock also listed Jerusalem with no country.

Palestinians claim Jerusalem, the Israeli capital, as the capital of their future state. The country listed with Hebron is “Palestinian territories,” as is Gaza. — jta
