Call the British Advertising Standards Authority!

Remember the British Advertising Standards Authority? It's time to call them again.
Jaffa, is a Palestinian Arab city, which lies in the West central of Palestine, on the Mediterranean Sea. Jaffa is military occupied by Israel since 1948, and is part of the unified city Tel Aviv-Yafo since 1950.

Founded by the Canaanites in the 18 th century B.C.E., Jaffa has been historically important largely because of its port (which was closed in 1965 to merchant shipping, when the port of Ashdod was completed). The small old port is used as a fishing harbour and became an international marina. The Canaanites named the city Jaffa which meant the beautiful.


In 1947 and 1948 there was sharp fighting in Jaffa, which was largely inhabited by Arabs, and the adjoining Jewish city of Tel Aviv. On the 13th of May 1948 (A day before the proclamation of the State of Israel), the Arab forces in Jaffa were defeated after long fighting with the Zionist underground Haganah and Irgun Zva’i Leumi forces, and the city was occupied by these Zionist Bands.

Today, Palestinian Arabs constitute about 25,000 inhabitants out of a total of 35,000 people. Jaffa has an old fishing harbour, modern boat docks, and a tourism centre. Jaffa is a major tourist attraction with an exciting combination of old, new and restored buildings.
So which is it? Are they claiming all of the current State of Israel, which contradicts their professed desire for a 'two-state solution'? Or are they trying to go back to the 1947 partition lines, which were rejected by the Arabs?

Which shows you Abu Bluff claims ALL of Israel, not just the West Bank and Gaza for a Palestinian State.

So much for that two state solution we keep hearing constantly about.

What could go wrong indeed
