Flytilla fail

Ethel C. Fenig
Knowing that an ounce of prevention equals a pound of cure and exercising its sovereign right, Israel correctly prevented hundreds of anti Israel terrorist supporters, mainly from Europe, from flying into the country this past Sunday. The hate filled bigots planned to fly into Israel's Ben Gurion Airport, one of the busiest as peaceful tourists were departing after celebrating Passover or Easter there, disrupt operations while creating publicity for their Welcome to Palestine (sic) campaign. Thanks to some amazing co-operation from airlines and governments in Europe and even Turkey most of the activists (sic) were stopped at their planned departure point.

Those who managed to sneak through were greeted by pro Israel demonstrators in the Israeli airport; Israeli officials handed them a welcoming informative greeting before arresting them and making arrangements for their quick expulsion.

Dear activist,

We appreciate your choosing to make Israel the object of your humanitarian concerns.

We know there were many other worthy choices.

You could have chosen to protest the Syrian regime's daily savagery against its own people, which has claimed thousands of lives.

You could have chosen to protest the Iranian regime's brutal crackdown on dissent and support of terrorism throughout the world.

You could have chosen to protest Hamas rule in Gaza, where terror organizations commit a double war crime by firing rockets at civilians and hiding behind civilians.

But instead you chose to protest against Israel, the Middle East's sole democracy, where women are equal, the press criticizes the government, human rights organizations can operate freely, religious freedom is protected for all and minorities do not live in fear.

Therefore we suggest to let you solve first the real problems of the region, and then come back and share with us your experience.

Have a nice flight.

Probably for diplomatic reasons Israel did not also suggest these faux humanitarians protest the real human rights problems in the European and African countries where their flights originated. But the twisted  racists will not follow the excellent advice from the Israeli government, continuing instead to encourage and support their counterparts, thus hindering any positive solution. And Syrians continue to be slaughtered.
