Another day, another humiliation:
Egypt on Wednesday detained and deported Northern Irish Nobel Laureate and anti-Israel activist Mairead Maguire and held up others who had been planning to go to neighboring Gaza, AFP reported.
Maguire had intended to join a delegation of women activists going to Gaza, activists and officials told the news agency. On Tuesday, airport police had already detained and deported American activist Medea Benjamin, also part of the delegation, who told AFP police broke her arm.
Come on, Medea, you’ve had that and worse coming for a long, long time.
But why would the lovely Irish colleen want to go to that armpit, Gaza?
This is not the first time she has tried to enter Gaza and failed. In 2010, Maguire took part in the flotilla that aimed to break Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza.
Following the flotilla, Maguire was expelled from Israel for 10 years. She appealed the decision to the Supreme Court, but the appeal was rejected. She was subsequently deported from Israel.
Egypt controls the only border crossing with Gaza that bypasses Israel, and is accused of colluding with the Jewish state to blockade the territory ruled by the Hamas terrorist group.
“I think it’s sad, what they’ve done,” Maguire told AFP of the reception she and the other activists received in Egypt.
“It is an example and confirmation of the Egyptian government’s compliance with the blockade of Gaza,” she charged.
She’s sad that Egypt is being mean to Hamass: yet another Jew-hater awarded with a Nobel Peace Prize. When’s Farrakhan’s turn?
These antisemites give Leftism—and peace—a bad name.
