    I have no problem with Israel turning away three swedish visitors at Tel Aviv Airport. That is Israel's perogative. But the case of Feiler is very different, because the Israeli authority allowed him into Israel but then attempted to bar him from travelling FROM Israel TO the West Bank. Feiler's lawyer is correct to point out that this Israeli demand is illegal, because under the Oslo accords the Israelis had agreed that they would not do that to foreign nationals. Think about it, Gershon: Allowing Fielder into Israel but not the West Bank means putting a bar on him crossing the Green Line. The Green Line is not Israel's border, Gershon, and so Israel does not have any SOVEREIGN right to do that i.e. what Israel can (and can't) do there is covered by a separate agreement. The Oslo accords, in fact, and in that Israel AGREED that it would not do this. Yet it is doing this. How Terribly Zionist Of Them.
