Western Wall a No-Go Zone for Israeli Tourism Ad

According to Britain's Advertising Standards Authority, the Western Wall is a no-go zone for an Israeli Tourism Ministry ad.

That's because the ASA judged in favor of a complainant who said the ad "misleadingly implied that East Jerusalem was part of the state of Israel." The ruling said:

We understood, however, that the status of the occupied territory of the West Bank was the subject of much international dispute, and because we considered that the ad implied that the part of East Jerusalem featured in the image was part of the state of Israel, we concluded that the ad was likely to mislead.

Here's the ad in question.


With the ASA on a slippery slope, how much longer till it adopts the even more radical view of PA media that Israel doesn't exist?
