Why do Israel travel advisories have the same spelling and font as the US government?
Israel is planning to launch a new travel advisory that will spell out the country’s travel warnings, and the font used in the warnings is the same font as that used by the US.
A new version of the Israel Travel Advisory will be available this Friday (Thursday, January 23) for those visiting Israel.
“It’s a very important message that will be heard in Israel,” a spokesperson for the Israeli Embassy in the US, which is coordinating the advisory, told The Verge.
“We want to be clear that Israel’s warning system is a direct response to US travel warnings.”
The US government has issued more than 200 travel advisors in the past few years, which are meant to help prevent people from getting lost in the Middle East.
While the UK has been known to follow the advice of its own travel advisory system, the Israeli government has opted to follow US advice on the matter, which means that many Israelis will have to follow a similar advice as well.
The UK government has warned Israelis not to fly into Israel or use the country as a transit point for the US for the next two weeks, while in Israel, the government has said it will also be warning Israelis not travel to the US after next week.
Israel has said the warnings are meant as a “precautionary measure,” but critics say it is actually a way to control the country.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been particularly vocal about the travel advisory’s effectiveness, and said the move could “end up as an anti-Israeli propaganda campaign.”
“We have no reason to fear Israel,” Netanyahu said.
“This is the most important step we can take.
We have a duty to protect our people and to ensure that they’re not harmed by the travel warning system.”
