Hi,
I wanted to ask you to fix a few things in Israeli cities, that my user's level is not high enough to fix.

1) There are two settlements that are mistakenly categorized under Palestine instead of Israel:
http://www.geonames.org/282536/neve-daniel.html
http://www.geonames.org/283991/efrata.html

Even though technically west bank settlements are not located on Israeli territory, people who live there are Israelies and those cities should be found on Israeli web sites, so it is better to sign those settlements under Israel.

Please fix it.

2) The popular Hebrew name currently set for the city of Tel-Aviv is 'תל אביב',
But it should be 'תל אביב-יפו' (Tel Aviv Yaffo) as both Tel Aviv and Yaffo, are the same municipality since 1949 and 'תל אביב-יפו' is both the formal and popular name of the city.

Please switch the popular name settings from 'תל אביב' to 'תל אביב-יפו'.

P.S.
I believe I've already contributed more than a hundred corrections to cities in Israel.
Please consider raising my user level, as it will make it easier for me to issue fixes.
My user name is: yoshkinawa

thanks.
