Google declares Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, without mentioning the disputes surrounding it [COMPACTIDEA]

Is this a deliberate pro-Israel act by Google, or an honest mistake by Google's algorithms [based on whatever data/information the algorithms have read on the Web]? I'm inclined towards the former. Google must not be allowed to spew out propaganda-like information as answers/facts, without it mentioning/recognizing any critical surrounding facts. In this case, whether or not Jerusalem, in full or in part, is the capital of Israel or Palestine is disputed. The dispute, and also Israel's occupation of Palestine must both be acknowledged in any "answer" that Google provides for a query. This isn't a simple query with a simple answer. And this lack of simplicity ought to be conveyed, lest there be brainwashing of Google's users.
