UK bans ad for implying Old Jerusalem part of Israel

The Dome of the Rock (R) and al-Aqsa mosque, both in the al-Aqsa mosque compound, are seen in the walled Old City of Jerusalem on April 16, 2014Britain’s advertising watchdog banned an Israeli government tourism advert for suggesting that the Old City of Jerusalem was part of Israel on Wednesday. The newspaper brochure showed a panorama of the walled Old City with the text “Israel has it all”, and was ruled misleading by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which said it implied the UNESCO World Heritage Site was part of Israel. The international community regards the Old City as occupied Palestinian territory, while Israel has claimed it as part of its capital. Following a complaint, the ASA ruled the title of the brochure “Israel Land of Creation” and references to Old City attractions was misleading and banned the advert from appearing again in its current form.
