Three myths for the price of one:
Myth #1: They are truthful, upstanding people.
Security forces arrested a British national, apparently a member of the pro-Palestinian International Solidarity Movement, who entered Israel in August with a changed name to avoid detection by Israeli border control, it was revealed Monday.
Myth #2: They do not support terror.
The man, Andrew MacDonald, had previously visited Israel in 2003 and was expelled by the Interior Ministry after soldiers arrested him while holed up in the home of a suicide terrorist. MacDonald changed his name and sneaked back into Israel this summer.
Myth #3: They are against violence and only engage in ‘passive resistance’.
Security forces detained him in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood Hebron in early November after he assaulted a member of the security forces. He was released, but was detained again on November 25.
