Actually, I am not aware of any country that officially recognizes
Jerusalem as part of Israel, except for Israel itself.
For most countries, including the USA, the status of Jerusalem is on
hold pending the completetion of a peace treaty, according to
resolutions of the UN. The largest city in recognized Israel is Tel Aviv.

Athletes injure themselves by not taking enough rest after a big match; I would hate to see that happen here.
