Israel plans to present activists scheduled to land at Ben Gurion International Airport on Sunday as part of the "flytilla protest" with a letter "thanking" the protesters for choosing Israel as the destination for their humanitarian demonstration, the "only democracy in the Middle East," as opposed to Syria, Iran or Gaza.

According to Channel 2, the mocking letter will read, "we appreciate your choosing yo make Israel the object of your humanitarian concerns. We know there were many other worthy choices."



The letter goes on to describe the "daily savagery" of the regime in Syria, the Iranian regime's "brutal crackdown on dissent" and Hamas's "hiding behind civilians."

The missive then charges the protesters with choosing to protest against "the Middle East's sole democracy, where woman are equal, the press criticizes the government, human rights groups can operate freely, and religious freedom is protected for all."
