This Ad Banned in Britain: Brits assert that Western Wall is not part of Israel!

British Ban of Israeli Ad Irks Jerusalem Mayor

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat branded as shameful a British decision to ban an Israeli advertisement that listed holy sites in Jerusalem as part of a tourism itinerary in Israel.

The advertisement [pictured above], which the Israel Government Tourist Office placed in British newspapers, included a photo of Judaism's Western Wall with Islam's Dome of the Rock.

Calling the Western Wall "the heart and soul of the Jewish people and the State of Israel," Barkat said Britain's Advertising Standards Authority had made a "shameful accusation showing a complete ignorance of history."
