This is true, but the routing will be determined by AAdvantage. I believe that connecting through Europe may not be allowed, but I am not sure. You'll probably be forced to route on El Al to HKG then CX to MNL.

if i do the route (which is fine) is it one ticket? my question is does that mean when i get to hkg do i have to recollect my bags and get a new boarding pass, or is my cx boarding pass issued in tlv?

They should do be able to do it as one ticket (though it may be paper). I would guess that your bags should be interlined through to MNL but someone with more experience on this would be able to give a more definitive answer.

Travel via a third region is not allowed. Some exceptions. All this listed in the sticky.

I would suggest looking into a oneWorld Award (though then El Al would not be an option).
