    First, there are no riots. It's the IDF that starts the violence every time. Peaceful protest is not a riot. "Those who come to Israel to encourage the terrorists to kill more Jews should be, at the very least, deported." This is bizarre nonsense. Few, if any, observers encourage or in any way condone attacks on innocent people, whatever their race or religion. They are witnessing and documenting the truth. It is the truth you fear. The vast majority of activists that go to Palestine, including me, are pacifists and absolutely oppose Pal attacks on Israeli civilians. I said so repeatedly at the Palestinian-American University in Jenin. If Israel really wanted the truth to come out, it could set up a booth or facility nearby and tell its side of the story. Thats how real democracies deal with protests. Only those who have something to hide want to deport observers, aligning you with N. Korea, Burma, etc
