Why Don't They Just Start Stamping 'Leftist' on Passports? 

So is it now official Israeli policy that you can't enter the country if you're a member of the International Solidarity Movement? Anyway, here are examples of barred entry, expulsion, and detention from the last thirty days or so: Ewa Jasiewicz, Adam Wilson, and Anne Robinson-Peter.

The case of Anne Robinson-Peter is particularly troubling in that she was imprisoned in a police detention center at the Ben-Gurion International Airport for 28 days, and she isnt't even that much of an activist. She's an artist from New York who says she never publicized her membership in the International Solidarity Movement and that she was detained "probably because [she is] on the ISM mailing list."
