Israel: Pro-Palestinian Flytilla activist shows true colors, draws swastika on Ben Gurion Airport wall

(Ynet) A swastika was found drawn on the wall of a holding facility for illegal aliens at Ben Gurion Airport, where several foreign pro-Palestinian activists who arrived in Israel as part of the "Welcome to Palestine" fly-in protest were held.

The activist responsible for the drawing was deported back to his country of origin on Monday. "This was the gift the 'peace activists' left Israel," a source at the Immigration Authority said.

The swastika was discovered by the detention facility employees after two foreign activists – citizens of France and Spain - were removed from the building.

The Immigration Authority said that a photograph of the defiled holding facility wall will be distributed to foreign media by the Foreign Ministry.
