Default Israel nabs fly-in activists at airport

Asked why Israeli authorities consider this particular group of activists a threat, Rosenfeld replied that they have "security backgrounds" or were "involved previously in different activities," including "security issues concerning Israel."
He would not elaborate.
Hundreds of additional activists were expected to arrive on flights later Sunday.
Amira Musallam, one of the coordinators for "Welcome to Palestine," said she was aware of only two activists making it through the airport. She said participants had been told not to lie if questioned at the airport, and that the weeklong program was now in doubt. The program included a project to renovate a school, give participants tours, plant trees and "get to know the Palestinian territories."
Plant trees!?!? Renovate schools!? Thank GOD the Israeli authorities managed to stop these terrorists.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the Israeli police for foiling the activists' plans and called the activists misguided.
"If they want to come check human rights, have them go to Syria. Maybe they can stop the massacre of thousands of innocents. Have them go to Iran and stop the stoning of women. Have them go to Gaza and stop the practice of using children as a human shield for terrorists who fire rockets on our citizens," he said.
Bibi is right.
Go look elsewhere, nothing to see in Israel - which is why they will NEVER EVER allow anyone to come see what is going on.

Visitors can only reach the West Bank through Israeli-controlled land crossings or Israeli airports, though at any given time, hundreds of foreigners, including activists, are in the territory, which Israel captured in 1967.
Travelers headed for Palestinian-controlled areas of the West Bank often report being detained and questioned, sometimes for hours, by Israeli border authorities.
I was not aware of this.
Seems fair to me. Punish the entire nation.

Steve Jobs and I talked about how we wanted to make blind people as equal and capable as sighted people, and you'd have to say we succeeded when you look at all the people walking down the sidewalk looking down at something in their hands and totally oblivious to everything around them! -- Steve Wozniak

Nice straw man, Bibi.
If I weren't out here every day battling the white man, I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity—because you can hardly mention anything I'm not curious about. — Malcolm X

Even Syria does allow observers.
Just Israel that doesn't.

But take our word for it - they are the victims.
As it was, is now, and ever shall be.
