GUILTY~Israel Found Guilty of Misleading

Looks like the Israeli "Hasbara" spin machine, spun a little out of control in it's recent add campaign in London, England. I wrote about it here when it happened. The Zionist add campaign for Israel consisted of posters inviting the British people of London to leave their cold rainy country to come and visit sunny happy racist Israel. In their zeal, the Zionist Add Agency went a bit too far with the "spin" and published huge posters they covered the London Underground with. These posters consisted of maps of Israel, showing the whole of Israel as including all of Palestine, Oooopsie!! The ever vigilant British Public noticed something was not quite right and filed hundreds of complaints. Mucho Kudos to them, here's the scoop:
The posters, on the London Underground, sparked hundreds of complaints from pro-Palestinian groups and members of the public.

The Advertising Standards Authority said a map labelled Israel implied the occupied territories were in Israel.

Israel's ministry of tourism said no political message was intended. (Yeah, right mate) It added that its aim was to give tourists an idea of the areas in and around Israel.(What he really means is the future map of Israel if the Zionists get their way)

The ASA said: "We understood that the borders and status of the occupied territories of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and Golan Heights were the subject of much international dispute, and because we considered that the ad implied that those territories were part of the State of Israel, we concluded that the ad was misleading."

They said the advert must not appear again in the same form.
The watchdog upheld complaints from the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, Jews for Justice for Palestine and 442 members of the public. source
Clearly another case of "Liar Liar Pants On Fire" for Israel.
