Delicious: Airlines: Let the flytilla 'activists' rot in prisons

In an earlier post, I noted that the airlines are required to return to their departure points any flytilla 'activists' who are denied entry by Israel. There are currently 124 'activists' being held in Israeli prisons who have been denied entry into Israel. The airlines are supposed to return those 'activists' to their departure points any flytilla 'activists' who have been denied entry to Israel. There's just one small problem: The airlines are overbooked. Would you like to give up your seat so that a flytilla 'activist' can be released from jail and sent home?
A senior official for one of the large European carriers told Haaretz on Saturday that "The airlines will have a hard time dealing all at once with large groups of pro-Palestinian activists that Israel wants to deport."

"We're talking about the peak of summer traveling season and the flights are full. We'll have to act accordingly and make different preparations, but first of all, we'll have to receive instructions from the head of the aviation authority in Israel for the deportation of the activists," he said.

"At present, we are unprepared to deal with this, in terms of human resources and in terms of amount of planes," the official added.

The authorities are expected to deport more than 100 pro-Palestinian activists that landed at Ben Gurion airport in the past few days. The last group of 35 activists landed on Friday just before midnight on a Lufthansa flight from Farnkfurt, and were transferred to a police detention facility.

The airline official estimated that the massive deportation will once begin on Sunday, continuing into the week, and will occur in small groups.
And what if the flytilla 'activists' don't want to leave?
The official also said that in the event of violent resistance or physical commotions on the plane on the part of the deportees, the plane's captain is entitled to decide not to carry them on board. The official referenced the return of deportees that arrived in Israel on the Gaza flotilla in June 2010, during which the activists caused disruptions on the flights, delaying them.
Why don't they just tie them to the wings? Heh.

Solitary cells, bread and water rations, infested mattresses on the floor and a hole to pee and poop in.

And charge them for it. They can stay like that forever, for all I care. If any of them die, they can be buried with the rest of the terrorists and their bodies will be released only after playing the additional burial and cargo transport expenses.

Shove them all on an army transport plane, issue them with parachutes and drop them off somewhere, maybe Syria or Egypt.

Another problem is that the protesters become violent just before boarding (as we witnessed personally on Friday) and the airline security won't let them on board.

Carl - deport them to Gaza. Making housing, feeding and taking care of them Haniyeh's problem.

Trying to figure out the reasoning for these airlines. They talk about "people Israel wants to deport". But the airlines brought them in, right? And Israel figured out right away that they are on some list or other? So if it is the thing to do for airlines like Delta to figure out who is on what list and who the Jews are, then why do these other big carriers think that they are not to be expected to keep out these "activists" on Israel's no entry list? And then be oh so put-upon when they have to cart the people back out?

BTW, if there was a no-entry list that the airlines refused to comply with, then I would charge the airlines for the per diem for these "activists". Make them pay for every day - room and board and labor costs for confining them.

@Shy Guy

Solitary cells, bread and water rations....,
Ever the hospitable host, huh Shy Guy? You remind me a certain verse in the Quran .."hardened hearts"..sighhhhh, true indeed were God's words to us. By contrast Islamic hospitality is legendary.

In any case, this isn't just about foreign flotilla activists. Even Israeli citizens are being treated like criminals.

This proves it doesn't stop at Palestinians, or their allies, as i've noted here before, it extends to "stupid Jews" and all those Jews who don't fit your narrow definition of what they should be, as Joseph Dana reports, the Israeli activists are targets just as much as the foreign ones,
After banning international activists from West Bank, Israel tries to do same with Israelis
