Pro-Palestinian activists who plan on arriving in Israel on Sunday and Saturday as part of a "flytilla" will receive a formal "welcome" letter from the Israeli government upon their arrival.
"Dear activist, we appreciate your choosing to make Israel the object of your humanitarian concerns," the letter reads. "We know there were many other worthy choices.You could have chosen to protest the Syrian regime's daily savagery against its own people, which has claimed thousands of lives,
Iranian regime's brutal crackdown, or Hamas rule in Gaza.
Therefore we suggest to let you solve first the real problems of the region, and then come back and share with us your experience. Have a nice flight." "
