The Israel exhibit at Walt Disney World’s Millennium Village makes no explicit mention of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — a subject that had sparked calls for a boycott by some Arab and Muslim groups in the United States and had drawn the attention of the Arab League. But in remarks delivered in the presence of Disney officials, Jewish community representatives and Florida officials, the Foreign Ministry’s director general, Eitan Ben-Tsur, referred three times to “Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.”
