(NEWS) Israel Denies Entry To Sweden MP & Ex-Israeli Who Sailed On Gaza Flotilla

"Israel ousted a Swedish legislator and a former Israeli on Sunday after they failed to uphold rules on entering the country after they had joined the IHH flotilla May 31.

Authorities said that Member of Parliament Mehmet Kaplan, a native of Turkey, and Dror Feiler, who lives in Sweden and has renounced his Israeli citizenship, tried to pass through Ben Gurion Airport without having obtained entry visas in Sweden.

Interior Ministry spokeswoman Sabine Hadad told the French news agency AFP, 'They (Kaplan and Feiler) were perfectly aware of these dispositions but they did not respect them.” All of the passengers on the six ships in the IHH flotilla signed an agreement to request proper authorization from Israeli embassies in their native countries before trying to enter Israel."
