District Court rejects flotilla passenger's deportation order appeal; she has until Sunday to appeal to Supreme Court

An Irish Nobel Peace Prize winner who has been in a Ben Gurion Airport lockup since Tuesday has until Sunday to appeal to the Supreme Court Friday's district court rejection of her appeal against a deportation order.
The Petah Tikva District Court on Friday rejected an Irish Nobel Peace Prize laureate's appeal against her deportation orders over entering Israel while being banned from the country.

Mairead Corrigan Maguire was detained at an airport lockup earlier this week for violating the conditions of her ban imposed in June, when she tried to reach Gaza aboard a blockade-busting ship.

At the time, Maguire was told she could not return for 10 years except with special approval.

The district court rejected her appeal Friday but gave her 48 hours to allow time for a High Court appeal.
I would bet that the Supreme Court will throw out the appeal too. Blockade-busting flotillas are very unpopular in this country.

Its not like a Nobel Prize winner is above the law.

There's no entitlement to enter Israel. And she shouldn't be allowed to come back.

Why don't they extend her ban
