The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

New Ben Gurion Airport Fly-In planned for April 2012
From Olivia Zémor
Bienvenuepalestine (Welcome to Palestine)
October 24, 2011
The new international mission to Palestine on April 15 to 21 is running on all cylinders. The new website of the mission,
WELCOME TO PALESTINE 2012
« We, the undersigned, endorse the call from the Welcome to Palestine 2012 initiative for supporters of Palestinian human and national rights around the world to openly visit Palestine during Easter 2012. There is no way into Palestine other than through Israeli control points. Israel has turned Palestine into a giant prison, but prisoners have a right to receive visitors.
Welcome to Palestine 2012 will again challenge Israel`s policy of isolating the West Bank while the settler paramilitaries and army commit brutal crimes against a virtually defenceless Palestinian civilian population. We call on governments to support the right of Palestinians to receive visitors and the right of their own citizens to visit Palestine openly.
The participants in Welcome to Palestine 2012 ask to be allowed to pass through Tel Aviv airport without hindrance and to proceed to the West Bank to take part in a project there for children to benefit from the right to education. »

Also, you should know that at this point the airline companies have reimbursed almost all of the tickets of those passengers whom they refused to embark under the order of Israel (the few remaining ones will be reimbursed in the coming days). This is a first victory, but complaints have been registered against this illegal discrimination based uniquely on our political opinions.
Many countries are already involved in the organization of this initiative.You can find their contacts on our website or on
