Nine Activists Land, Arrested in ‘Mass Fly-In'

The “massive flytilla” of PA supporters so far has numbered a grand total of nine activists, all of whom were arrested at Ben Gurion International Airport Sunday morning. Three of them were deported immediately. Several Opposition Knesset Members objected to what they called “exaggerated” fears of the pro-Palestinian Authority demonstrators, but Likud Minister Yisrael Katz said, “We are going to defend the borders in every possible way.”
