Minnesota "Peace" Activist Detained in Israel

From today's Star Tribune:
Kristin (Flo) Razowsky, a Minneapolis-based pro-Palestinian activist who was expelled from Israel in 2003, was detained again Friday at Ben-Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv as she tried to re-enter Israel, according to the International Solidarity Movement.

The ISM said Razowsky planned to oppose Israel's expected effort to deport her again.

In 2003, Razowsky was living in the West Bank and working in an ISM office near Bethlehem when she was arrested and charged with being in an area that Israel had ordered closed to foreigners.

In Minneapolis, Razowsky has advocated for an end to Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Accurate as far as it goes, but a bit incomplete. Here's a bit more information on the ISM to help demonstrate what sort of "peace activists" they are.
