1. Fly in hooligans
Israeli Police must arrest all the hooligans and put them on trial.If found guilty put them in jail and before deport them,Israel should fine them at least $10000 each
2. No one has a right to enter a foreign country.
Kyle ,   Southpark, CO, USA   (07.05.11)
Border control can decide to admit or refuse anyone holding a foreign passport, for any reason whatsoever. There is no "international law" that says a foreigner must be allowed to enter any country as a tourist. If you believe there is then I suggest trying out this "international law" in Saudi Arabia.
3. Mr. Aharonovitch,
Salma ,   Palestine   (07.05.11)
pro-Palestinian activists are our guests, please do us a favor and show them your true un-Democratic colors . Good luck : )
4. Don't forget passport & customs are photography prohibited z
Eric ,   Tel Aviv & NY   (07.05.11)
Don't forget passport & customs are photography prohibited zone - thus limiting the media blitz that these people want. They should be identified, arrested, and held in press free areas while they are processed and expelled.
5. Good! Don't make statements now. Just do it!
Israeli 2   (07.05.11)
6. Salma "PALESTINE"
David ,   Haifa, Israel   (07.05.11)
He should clarify further Salma... that we will deport ALL Jordanian refugees like yourself. You Arabs do not know the owrd democracy... do not use it.

9. Find a better way to inconvenience them.
Roland Seener ,   London England   (07.05.11)
Deportation costs services and money !
10. To salma#3
john   (07.05.11)
No such state called palestine.You are an ungrateful guest in the only democratic state in the middle east called the Jewish state of Israel.Don't you ever forget it and behave like a decent guests should.
11. #3 No democracy for guests of the occupied.
Joe   (07.05.11)
Or for the occupied themselves. If that's not enough to make peace over, there truly is no hope for you or your guests.
12. A better idea
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (07.05.11)
Everyone entering Israel is required to state the purpose of their visit. If these terrorists lie on their visa applications, they will have broken the law and should be imprisoned. Bread and water. No visits from family, friends or attorneys. After ninety days, throw their sorry asses out of the country. If it's a lesson they want, teach them one that they will not soon forget. This nonsense has gone on far too long.
13. "Fly-in 'hooligans' will be deported" - no kidding.
leo ,   usa   (07.05.11)
How about make them pay before deporting. Keep each in detention until fine and all the expenses are paid.
14. To: No. 8
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (07.05.11)
"David," not "Daviv." You are the last person on the face of the earth to be correcting anyone's grammar, usage and spelling. Trust me on this. I'm pretty good at all three.
15. #12 As usually you shoot off without thinking
Ben Alofs ,   Bangor, UK   (07.05.11)
These people have been invited by 40 different Palestinian organisations. It is their INTENTION on arrival at Ben Gurion airport to state openly that they want to visit Palestine at the invitation of the Palestinian Authority. Usually, if people want to go to Palestine they will have to hide their true intentions, because otherwise they will not be allowed in and are deported. It happened to me several times. If I am honest access to Palestine will be denied. If I lie I will get in. This illustrates the stranglehold the Zionist settler state has on the Palestinian people under occupation in their own ancient land.
16. No, you don't want them as tourists.Blacklist them for life.
Dr. L. Brnd ,   San Diego, USA   (07.05.11)
Israel needs to stop foreign "pro-palestinian activists" from entering Israel at all, or even boarding planes and ships to try to get there - a right Israel has under int'l law.. Abbas' UN "statehood" ploy to bypass peace talks (that require recognizing the Jewish State next door) means that Israel should stop facilitating the PA-Gaza "political tourist" game and honoring past agreements on free passage. There is no legal requirement to let them into Ben Gurion if their purpose is to travel ACROSS SOVEREIGN ISRAELI SOIL to get to the PA and cause trouble. These people should be identified, declared persona non grata for life, and kept out of Israel for good. You don't need their tourist dollars, euros or pounds. If they try, lock them up until their families or governments pay for the costs and damage they created. The US banned Communists from entering the US during the Cold War, and still bans Nazis and neo-Nazis AND ARAB EXTREMISTS from entering the US for any reason. Keep these bastards out of Israel, including Jewish leftists. Israel has a legal and moral right to use as much force as needed to prevent airport terrorism by these thugs. Just beat the crap out of airport troublemakers, confiscate their money and property as compensation, and send them back immediately on the next garbage scow. No country puts up with this.
17. An another blue-eyed "semite" ;) ,...
split ,   US   (07.05.11)
Sounds like KGB academy graduate.
18. #3 I suggest they fly in into your airport . hahahaha
19. give them one deep cavity search .
20. #8 did that make you feel superior? only an uneducated
rachel ,   usa   (07.05.11)
moron would go so low!
21. Learn from countries in Europe
Yael Schlichting ,   Raubling - Germany   (07.05.11)
1. Establish a painful entrance process with far toooooo few officers. Let them wait and offer them only junk-food and water at a far ty high price. 2. Detain them until you are clear how to proceed with them. Negotiate with their home countries and with Gaza. This may take weeks. 3. After you have become clear where to bring this unwanted immigrants to, bring them through another painful emigration process, so that they learn, that in Israel everything has it's order and imigration of supporters of Palestine has a painfully slow but but very very friendly order. They must hate us for our friendlyness, for our sympathetic smiles, for the help we offer to them, because they must bear it for weeks!
22. Not very newsworthy
William ,   Israel   (07.05.11)
His announcement was just a glossing over of the obvious. Deporting hooligans (which are intent on breaking the agreement of their visas thus annulling them) is just the same as "we will arrest and persecute rapists to the fullest extent of the law". His announcement would be better if it came with some pepper - announce the arrest, confinement for an undetermined amount of time of hooligans, a full background check and sharing of intelligence with other global agencies, and finally a big, fat Israeli stamp in their passport, and being placed on a blacklist. The idea is to make them think twice.
23. #3 - but Ben Gurion is not your airport
William ,   Israel   (07.05.11)
Is it common "Palestinian" hospitality to host your guests at other people's houses? You're guests yourselves.
24. #8 - That's it? THAT'S your response?
William ,   Israel   (07.05.11)
You can tell you tripped up a selfish Leftist/Pro-"Palestinian" when they either critique your spelling/grammar, or call you a racist Nazi.
25. #15 - right, and Israeli Visas do not cover trip to WB
William ,   Israel   (07.05.11)
You need a special waiver for that. Did they get that prior to travel. Doubtful because it would never be granted. Therefore, they would have to lie to get the tourist visa, then make their intentions known at the Ben Gurion airport in order to create an altercation - this was admitted to in the articles already. Their intentions, like the attempt to break the blockade around Gaza, is illegal. Until the borders and "Palestinian" sovereignty is negotiated, Israel remains in control per the Oslo Accords which Arafat signed on their behalf - or haven't you researched that part of the story?
26. #15 Ben Alofs
Kyle ,   Southpark, CO, USA   (07.05.11)
Please read my comment #2. If these tourists wish to visit "Palestine" as invited guests of "Palestinians" they do not have to transit through Israel. Amman, Jordan has a perfectly functioning airport and direct flights from most major European cities. If I am invited by friends to visit Dubai am I allowed to transit through Saudi Arabia?
27. #15 - c'mon now, you know "palestinians" aren't natives
William ,   Israel   (07.05.11)
If this is their ancient homeland, why did they speak 20 different languages just 8 decades ago? If so many lived here, why did the majority need to illegally immigrant for economic benefits (per British records)? And if the land is their homeland, why did the Hashemite govt need to flood the West Bank with thousands of Arab families after they ethnically cleansed Jews from their homes and illegally annexed it after they attacked Israel? You can say a lie a dozen times, but it doesn't make it truth, doctor.
28. confiscate everything, drop off in gaza with minimal clothes
ralph   (07.05.11)
on their backs. plus name placed on no-fly list to israel for 20 yrs. who needs these airheads.
29. fly in
Dan ,   USA   (07.05.11)
Impose substantial fines (at least $5 million US per person) and imprison them until they are paid. Force their organizations to support Israel.
30. #15 As usual your fascist ideology blames Jews
Phil ,   Ireland   (07.05.11)
You invent a place called "Palestine" which does not exist, and blame Jews for all the woes of others. You are obviously no stranger to lying because you deny the Jews their ancient land. You are the one shooting off without thinking. Or rather thinking the way fascists think.
