The Jerusalem Post is reporting live from Ben-Gurion Airport, where police have detained a few dozen pro-Palestinian activists who flew to Israel as part of the "flytilla" protest on Sunday.

"Welcome to Palestine 2012,” the umbrella organization overseeing the initiative, calls on activists to “challenge Israel’s policy of isolating the West Bank while the settler paramilitaries and army commit brutal crimes against a virtually defenseless Palestinian civilian population,” according to a message posted on the group’s website.
