“Welcome to Palestine” activists, responsible for the recent Flytilla fiasco, have announced that they are planning on organizing an additional campaign, scheduled to take place in late August.

The effort aims at showcasing support for the "Palestinian cause" while exposing “Zionist arrogance against the international activists.”

“Occupied Palestine: Blogging 4 Human Rights & Liberation of Palestine,” stated that about 23 institutions and 15 international activists have agreed to organize a campaign on August 23.

In broken and disjointed English, the blog stated, “The Palestinian organizers had regulated a tour to the activists, who succeeded to reach the occupied territories, to many Palestinian cities and areas and to the Zionist racist Wall in addition to the occupied Jerusalem where they briefed the Zionist violations, settlers’ attacks on Palestinians and their properties, and the Judaization process.

“The occupation authorities arrested early last week, dozens of international activists, who tried to reach Palestine through Lod Airport, coming from several European countries, before they expel them."

On Sunday April 15, approximately 80 anti-Israel activists arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport in an attempt at breaching Israel’s borders and undermining the safety and security of the Jewish state. Fifty-six of the activists were arrested, while eighteen were deported back to their country of origin.
