The activists have themselves declared that this is not in lieu of the flotilla and was planned months ago. To state that it is is disinformation on the part of Haaretz. They also say that all they are going to do at the airport is be frank about the purpose of their visit, which was not the case in the past. Instead of thanking them for their honesty and seeing the advantages in this step we are making a tornado in a thimble out of it. Are we really terrified of a visit by a couple of hundred non-violent, mostly middle-aged ladies come to give moral support to a sector of Israel's residents that we should be filling the airport with undercover agents and running live reports on our media? If they were in sheitels come to support a West Bank yeshiva would anyone be bothering with them?
