Israel has been forced to remove posters which showed the Syrian Golan Heights, West Bank and Gaza as part of Israel.
The obscene images were displayed on the London Underground.
The Syrian Embassy and Palestine Solidarity Campaign told Transport for London about the illegality of promoting tourism in the three occupied territories.
Syria called the posters “offensive”. London Underground has now torn them down.
Of course, Israel claims it was a “professional mistake” and bizarrely goes further – saying LU didn’t tell them to take the posters down, they chose to remove them.
Israel admits it had “a bit of a harsh response” to the posters. 600 complaints to TfL and 300 to the Advertising Standards Authority.
TfL’s quick decision is to be commended. It shows the power of campaigns like this – demand SANCTIONS on Israel and make sure you BOYCOTT Israeli products.
