This appeared in the UK, where this ad appeared:
The UK, where the implication that Jerusalem is in Israel brought down on Israel's Tourism Authority the wrath and prohibition of the advertisement regulation board.
UK = The Ugly Kingdom.

Britain’s advertising regulator has launched an investigation following a barrage of complaints over a “Travel Palestine” advert in this month’s National Geographic magazine which appears to blot out the existence of the State of Israel. The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), the UK’s independent regulator of advertising across all media, told The Jerusalem Post on Friday that in the last few days it had received 60 complaints about the advert – published by the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, “the official website for tourism in Palestine” – which appeared in National Geographic’s Traveller magazine.^
“I can confirm that the ASA has received 60 complaints about the Travel Palestine ad that appeared in the National Geographic magazine,” an ASA spokesman told the Post. “I can also confirm that the ASA has launched a formal investigation into the ad.”
