How To Rewrite History

I was forwarded these scans of on-flight reading material for EasyJet flyers available to persons flying to Jordan.

The cover:

The page with the problem:

Can you see the problem?

a) Actually, Jordan not only shelled Israel but actually did invade Israel at Armon HaNatziv, the former High Commissioner's HQ and later, the UN-base:

the Jordan army opened fire on Jerusalem and on the Jewish communities along side the border. Hundreds of shells fell on Jerusalem. In the late afternoon, the Jordanian troops conquered Armon Hanatziv, which was used as a UN base. Jordanian shells fell on Kibbutz Bet She'an and in Mishlosh, Kfar Saba, Kfar Sirkan, Lod, Ra'anana, Tel Baruch and Tel Aviv.

b) Jordan was illegally occupying a portion of the former Palestine Mandate, including neighborhoods in the eastern section of the city.

c) those "holy sites" also included those that Jordan prohibited Jews from visiting despite the terms of the cease-fire agreement signed in 1949.  Never has religious freedom been more free than under Israel's sovereignty.

Talk about truth-in-advertising.
