We are delighted to be able to report that, following our post yesterday regarding the QI website’s omission of any reference to the significance of Jerusalem to Judaism in an item about the city, the website has now been updated.
The second paragraph of the amended version now reads:
“Today, as well as being the spiritual centre of Judaism, it is the third holiest city in Islam. In Arabic, Jerusalem is most commonly known as al-Quds meaning ‘The Holy.’ Jerusalem is also of great importance to Jesus’s followers where more than a dozen Christian communities live side by side in (not always complete) harmony.”
Well done QI team!
