Re:"ISM activist being held at airport as 'security risk' "
Why did you report in favor of ISM member Anne Robinson-Peter, a self-appointed peace-activist, detained last week at Ben Gurion airport?
You downplayed the reason (she tried to lie her way past immigration) Israeli security suspected her of being something other than a tourist. No wonder she was detained. Had this happened in the UK or USA she'd have been sent home on the next plane.
Seems all except Haaretz's reporter know that International Solidarity Movement is a euphemism for Palestinian Solidarity Movement. ISM supports the Palestine Terrorist Authority and its terrorist organizations exclusively. ISM never acted to prevent Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, Al Asqa Martyrs and others from killing Jews.
"International" does not mean, as many may think, that ISM operates in countries other than Israel. Not for them to shield Tibetans from the Chinese; Kurds from the Iraqis; or Christians from the Muslims of Nigeria, Sudan and Indonesia. "International" means simply that the Palestine Terrorist Authority recruits their terrorist collaborators from many countries.
Had your journalist opened their website, she would have seen ISM's thinly disguised intent to prevent Israeli security forces from combating Palestinian terrorist groups. ISM is a Palestinian initiative organized to aid and abet Arabs in their well publicized intention to eliminate the Jewish State of Israel.
Anne Robinson-Peter and her ilk are active Israel-haters if not outright anti-Semites. I am glad an Israeli court permitted her deportation.
Why should Israel or Haaretz give a tinker's cuss about this anti-Israel Movement and their mostly anti-Semitic volunteers?
