What kind of mind would make you think, you can stop a Muslim from killing Israelis just by your protest? I swear, they have no brains.. UPI Israel on Saturday prevented U.S. peace activists traveling with U.S. congressional staff members on a fact-finding mission to the Palestinian territories and Israel from entering the West Bank, according to the activists, the State Department and an Israeli official. Yaffa Ben-Ari, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, said Israel objected to the entry of the peace activists traveling with the U.S. team. The activists were three representatives of the American Muslims for Jerusalem organization and Jews for Peace in Palestine and Israel organization, said Josh Ruebner, head of the JPPI. He said they planned to meet with American and international humanitarian organizations in the West Bank and Gaza. "Since Israel has the sovereign right to decide who can enter Israel and who can't, we have the right to prevent groups who we know ahead of time are coming to demonstrate and cause provocation in places where Israeli soldiers are fighting terrorism," Ben-Ari said. In Washington, the State Department said two of the three "coordinators" with the congressional staff members were denied entry into Israel when they arrived at the Allenby Bridge border crossing from the Jordanian side. The congressional staff members themselves decided not to present their passports to the Israeli authorities for inspection and permission to enter, the State Department said. It wasn't immediately clear which U.S. representatives the congressional staff members were representing. The delegation could not be reached for comment, and Khalid Turanni, executive director of the American Muslims for Jerusalem, refused to provide their names. Ruebner said he was allowed to enter Israel but refused because two other activists were denied permission. Too bad they did'nt meet a homocide bomber to try and "convert" him...snicker..snicker.

While they are there, they need to take a bus ride. Jay [img]http://www.commspeed.net/jmurray/images/iroc-cop.gif[/img]

They've also kicked out many of the ones that were already there (such as the jerks prolonging the siege of the church of the nativity by smuggling in food!). They have to put up with the home-grown peaceniks, but the foreigners have no inherent right to be there.
