Court Orders American Activist Expelled

(Ha'aretz) Relly Sa'ar - Tel Aviv District Court Thursday ordered the expulsion from Israel of Ann Petter, 44, an American activist who came to join a protest against the West Bank separation fence. Judge Oded Moderick said the International Solidarity Movement tries to "disrupt the defense authorities' functioning in the administered territories." "They include confrontations with IDF soldiers, entrenching themselves in terrorists' houses to prevent their demolition, taking Palestinians from one place to another during closures, and acting to disrupt the construction of the security barrier."
