Audacity of Dopes 'FLYTILLA' assault on Israel in progress

Some of these activist dopes have been prevented from boarding planes in Europe, bound from Israel . Two Americans have already been deported. Others on Israel’s ‘NO DOPES’ list are being detained at Ben-Gurion Airport. In the meantime protesters are making fools of themselves in their aiport.

J POST (H/T Maria) At least 60 pro-Palestinian activists taken from EasyJet, Alitalia flights for police interrogation; 6 left-wing activists arrested after causing disturbance at airport; undercover agents, police deployed at Ben-Gurion airport.

At Paris’s Charles de Gaulle Airport, fifty pro-Palestinian activists arrived at the Lufthansa terminal hoping to board a flight to Israel, and then refused to leave the terminal afterthey were blocked from boarding the plane, Israel Radio reported. Olivia Zemour, leader of the EuroPalestine organization that is arranging the “air flotilla,” said that the blacklist includes names of 347 activists.  “Charles de Gaulle Airport is under Israeli occupation. We are peaceful people and have no interest in causing disorder at Ben Gurion Airport,” Zemour was quoted by Israel Radio as saying. In Geneva, EasyJet also refused to let 30 acitivists on board a flight to Israel.

Police diverted two passenger aircraft that landed at Ben-Gurion International Airport on Friday, detaining at least 60 suspected pro-Palestinian activists for questioning. Some 20 activists in that group were denied entry.

The flights, one EasyJet from Geneva and one Alitalia, were diverted to Terminal 1, where police combed passengers for pro-Palestinian activists expected to attempt entry into the country as part of the “Air Flotilla,” Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.Police believed a bulk of foreign pro-Palestinian activists were on those jets.
After police finished checking the flights, passengers not connected to the groups of activists were ferried back to Terminal 3.
The suspected activists were taken to aseparate area of the airport for questioning. The activists involved represented a number of different countries, including the United States, Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands.Undercover agents and police continue to be deployed at Ben-Gurion Airport as more “air flotilla” participants were expected to arrive.
Meanwhile, six left-wing Israeli activists were arrested after causing a disturbance in the arrivals area at Terminal Three police added. “Five males and one female are being questioned,” Rosenfeld said. The activists held up signs inside the terminal saying “Welcome to Palestine.” Several of them were taken outside by police where they were arrested and attacked by bystanders.
Earlier Friday, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said that even though hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists taking part in the “air flotilla” were prevented from entering Israel, “the wave was still ahead of us,” adding that in the coming hours approximately 100 activists are expected to land in Israel.
“We’re not taking any chances,” the minister said.During the meeting, the latest security preparedness was discussed, and the minister heard that all security agencies were able to “significantly minimize” attempts by hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists abroad from reaching Israel, by preventing them from boarding at their point of origin, the Public Ministry said in a statement. 

“At the same time, police preparations at Ben Gurion Airport is creating deterrence,” the statement added. “The presence of undercover and overt forces at the airport has prevented many who sought to disturb public order from heading [to Israel],” the statement added. Police are also mobilized at the Temple Mount and along the green line to prevent any disturbances.
There are a number of flights scheduled to arrive this afternoon that immigrationauthorities will pay special attention to, the Police spokesman told The Jerusalem Post. Around 200 foreign activists are believed to have been banned from boarding flights bound for Israel in various European airports.

The Interior Ministry told foreign airlines on Thursday they were required under Israeli law to remove “pro-Palestinian radicals” from flights bound for Israel. He added that “we have a list of some people who are planning to hold illegal demonstrations around the country.”
