This advert recently appeared in the new National Geographic Traveler magazine. It gives the following false impressions:
• that Palestine is a country
• that Jerusalem is part of Palestine
• that Palestine extends from the Med to the Jordan
• this advertisement would mislead tourists, since on travelling to territory controlled by the Palestinian Authority, they would not find the sites and facilities which the advertisement promotes
As you may remember, the Advertising Authority Agency recent banned an Israeli Government Tourist Office advert for that all of the areas featured on the map were part of the state of Israel.
