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

Mystery and `Why can`t they deport me, instead?`
By Adam Keller
5 Oct 2010
Unknown people entered yesterday night the village of Beit Fajr, which is surrounded by settlements on all sides. The unknowns reached the village mosque, set it on fire left graffiti in Hebrew about `Revenge` and `exacting a price`.
Shaul Goldstein, the elected leader of the settlers in this area, protested angrily the media assumption that settlers are responsible for the arson. `The investigation is still at its the beginning, all options are open. Why are we blamed? This is part of an incitement campaign!`
Indeed, it is also quite possible that the mosque was torched by aliens who arrived during the night in a spaceship from Mars. This possibility, too, should be looked into.
`Why can`t they deport me, instead?`
Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Maguire was detained at Ben Gurion Airport. The State of Israel is absolutely unwilling to let her enter the country. Maguire appealed to the Supreme Court, but the state authorities hold firmly to their resolve: no way can she enter the country, not even for a few days. It is dangerous!
`Why can`t they deport me, instead?` remarked Mordechai Vanunu, who had come to the Petach Tikva District court to support Maguire.
But: Mordechai Vanunu, the nuclear whistleblower, can`t get through Ben Gurion Airport, either. The State of Israel is absolutely unwilling to let him leave the country. Vanunu appealed to the Supreme Court, but the state authorities hold firmly to their resolve: no way can he leave the country, not even for a few days. It is dangerous!
