The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has censured the Palestinian Diplomatic Mission to the UK for carrying a map on its website that described Israel as Palestine by showing all the land in the region – Israel, plus the West Bank and Gaza – in the colours of the Palestinian flag. Headlined “Discover Palestine”, the interactive map was aimed at promoting tourism. After receiving six complaints, ASA contacted the Palestinian Mission, which explained disingenuously that the map represented “Palestine in 1948” before the creation of the state of Israel.
