Two Israeli Arabs were detained in Jerusalem Saturday on suspicion of planning to give out pamphlets against the visit of Pope Benedict XVI. They were caught in the Old City with hundreds of fliers in both Hebrew and English calling to boycott the pope's visit. It was unknown whether the two were affiliated with any organization.
