    Israel preparing to block hundreds of protesters expected at airport - The Washington Post

    JERUSALEM — Israel vowed Tuesday to prevent the entry of hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists from Europe and North America expected to arrive in the country this weekend, calling them provocateurs who are intent on disturbing public order.

    The activists are set to board flights to Israel with the aim of participating in demonstrations against Israeli policy in the West Bank. Although organizers say all protests will be peaceful, Israeli officials said the activists would be deported.

    “The provocateurs will be dealt with in a determined and quick way,” said Israel’s public security minister, Yitzhak Aharonovitch. “If they arrive to Israel they will be identified, removed from the plane, their entry into Israel will be prevented and they will be moved to a detention facility until they are flown out of Israel.”

    Last July, Israel blocked a similar effort by preventing scores of activists from boarding Tel Aviv-bound flights in Europe, questioning dozens more upon arrival at the airport and denying entry to 69.

    Israel had tracked the activists on social media sites, compiled a blacklist of more than 300 names and asked airlines to keep those on the list off flights to Israel. Officials say Israel will use similar tactics this time as well.

    “They have the right to enter Palestine. It’s not up to Israel to forbid anybody from coming into Palestine,” said Abdelfattah Abusrour, a local organizer.

    Israel has been jittery about large influxes of foreign activists since a naval raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla in May 2010 turned deadly. The Israeli navy and the activists have each accused each other of sparking the bloodshed in which nine Turkish activists were killed.

    Organizers say this week’s mission, sponsored by an umbrella group called “Welcome to Palestine,” seeks to draw attention toward Israeli travel restriction on Palestinians.

    Visitors can reach the West Bank only through Israeli-controlled crossings, either through international airports or the land border with Jordan. Citing security concerns, Israel bars most Palestinians from entering Israel or using its airport, meaning they must travel to neighboring Jordan to fly out.

    Israel has even tighter restrictions on Palestinians living in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. Few are allowed to enter Israel. Instead, most must arrange permits to go through the southern border with Egypt — a process that can take several weeks during busy travel times.

    At any given time, hundreds of foreigners, including activists and aid workers, are in the West Bank.

    In other developments, Israeli and Palestinian officials said they expect Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to meet next Tuesday in what would be the highest level talks between the sides in a year and a half.

    The officials spoke on condition of anonymity pending a formal announcement.

    Peace talks have been frozen since late 2010 following the expiration of a limited Israeli freeze on West Bank settlement construction. The Palestinians say they will not resume negotiations while Israel continues to build settlements on occupied land that the Palestinians claim for a future state. A low-level dialogue between the sides early this year failed to restart formal negotiations.

    Officials do not expect any breakthroughs at Tuesday’s meeting. Palestinian officials say Fayyad will present a letter asking to resume peace talks based on several conditions Netanyahu has rejected in the past, including a full settlement freeze.

    Good move. Israel knows how to fight against global Islamic terrorism. They don't believe in any non-sense. GoI should learn such things from Israel.

    The vast majority of these protesters are just middle-class westerners with no ties to Islam at all, but ok if you say so.

    So what ? These armchair intellectual and liberals are idiots who don't understand the problem country faces. Few just support to show their liberal and secular credentials. Why they don't show support to 10,000 innocent people killed by Asad in Syria with the help of Iranian backed hezbollah ? Israel is facing terrorism for last 5 decades. Israel is only responsible for her citizen and sovereignty. They have right to defend. That is more that enough.

    Don't you think you're generalizing? I mean we're talking about thousands of protesters here, you think they're all idiot intellectual liberals with no clue?

    If you want to talk about the Assad issue I suggest you respond to my other Syria threads because it's completely irrelevant to this thread.

    I am showing the hypocrisy.

    100 thousand if Muslims were killed by Muslims themselves in Syria, Kurdistan, Pakistan, Balochistan, Bahrain, Iraq, Yemen, Turkey, Egypt, Libya and other Islamic countries. Why don't these Islamist support them ?

    Why the hell no one is talking of 10 times bigger issue of Kurdistan but a tiny Palestine? Muslims are 25% in Israel and living in much better condition than Muslims in many so called Islamic countries like Syria, Balochistan, and so on.

    There is nothing called "Palestine". They have no right to exist. If they have problem with Israel, they are free to go to 50 odd Muslim countries. I am sure, couple of million population won't make any difference. Money is also not the criteria. Islamic countries are hypocrites, they use "Palestine" for the sake of getting support from Muslim countries. It's political tool. They are just doing propaganda.

    “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it” - Adolf Hitler


    If they have balls, why 20 odd countries which hates Israel attack Israel ? Oh wait, they will piss in their pant once Israel launch Jericho missile. :rofl:

    Have you read Mein Kampf?

    ^ Ironically Hitler was talking about Jewish intellectuals spreading the big lie of Socialism and Communism. Quite amusing that you actually used that quote.

    Islamist are following the path of Hitler. Sometime back, Ahmadinejad was praising Hitler to execute jews. Even Paki like you do the same.

    I take a special interest in all global politics, but my focus is on the mid east atm because that is where most tension in the world currently is. If you can't read, I've posted numerous other articles in this very same section, and numerous other sections of this board.

    Go ahead and ignore the other like 175 posts I have that have nothing to do with Israel, you just make yourself look dumber and dumber. This is a game to me.

    But still my accusation remain same. Go and start thread on Syria, Xinjiang, Bahrain, Sindhudesh, Balochistan, Shia killing and other important issues which are much more important than dead issue of palestine. Don't justify yourself to be dumbest. You are no son of Govinda. :rolleyes:

    And when a completely irrational idiot runs out of nonsense to say he... babbles on about even more bizarre nonsense.

    Thanks for playing. I take pride in exposing people like you.

    Don't make idiotic and moronic comment. This is not your Islamist forum where you can do propaganda against our trustworthy friend Israel. I am not irrational but you are proving the one. Exposing me? :rofl: Let members decide!! :taunt1:

    And just to clarify, this isn't propaganda. It's an American news article, which I especially made sure was free of bias and partiality.
