Israeli tourism poster banned in England

WASHINGTON (JTA) — An advertising poster promoting tourism to Israel was banned by a British advertising watchdog.

The Advertising Standards Authority received 442 public complaints about a poster featuring a map that included the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights as part of Israel, The Jerusalem Post reported.

The Tourism Ministry responded that the map was "a general schematic tourism and travel map rather than a political map.”

The advertising authority

nonetheless determined that the map was misleading and prohibited the poster from appearing in its current form.
