Forbidden to advertise the Kotel

Iconic 1967 image of Israeli soldiers at the KotelThe Advertising Standards Authority (UK) has just ruled that showing Jerusalem as a tourist destination 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.The ad breached CAP Code clause 7.1 (Truthfulness). Complaint Ref: 114921

Protest this arrogant attempt to support the BDS movement by stealth. The ASA asks you to use their form to lodge a complaint. Complain about them.

In addition, send a written complaint to:

Advertising Standards Authority
Mid City Place
71 High Holborn

Written complaints take longer but are more likely to receive a reply.
