Two Israeli pro-Palestinian activists brandished signs reading "welcome to Palestine" at the end of a police briefing given to reporters about the "flytilla" protest at Ben-Gurion Airport on Sunday.

The activists were whisked away immediately by police and were pursued by a number of right wing activists who shouted at them, "go to Syria, hypocrites, what are you looking for in a democracy."

One pro-Israeli activist, Yossi Davidoff said the flytilla activists should be "shown how Hamas in Gaza hangs collaborators while Israel provides medical treatment to Palestinians injured in traffic accidents."

Minor scuffles between the pro-Palestinian and pro-Israel activists broke out before the pair were whisked away by police.
