The Nine Britons are released from Israeli Prison and return home
All of the remaining British contingent of Welcome to Palestine 2012
arrived at Manchester Airport last night at 10.30pm, having spent 5 days in
Givon Prison, Ramla. There were never charged with any crime nor given any
explanations to why they were detained in
the first place. The Israeli crackdown
on anyone attempting to openly visit
Palestine is more repressive than ever,
and the British Government is blatantly
colluding in this practice as is evidenced by
'advice' they give on their website.
One detainee is quoted as saying: 'Really the Home Office
should be transparent about it on their website
- if you want to travel to the West Bank, we advise you to lie'.
