A locally-based pro-Palestinian activist is detained by Israeli  undercover police officers after protesting at Ben-Gurion international  airport near the Israeli capital, Tel Aviv, Friday, July 8, 2011. Scores of pro-Palestinian protesters trying to reach Israel were blocked at airports in Europe  and two American activists who arrived in Israel were deported early  Friday, Israeli officials said.
The protesters claimed victory as they succeeded in exposing Israel’s discrimination towards anyone wishing to visit the Palestinian territories. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu opted not to address the issue altogether, instead choosing to call the activists ‘hooligans’, despite openly declaring their peaceful intentions. (AP Photo)
