International Solidarity Movement Activist Susan Barclay Successfully Resists Deportation from Israel.

The Israeli Interior Ministry suffered an embarrassing defeat this morning, February 28th, when Judge Mikhaela Shidlovsky-Or of Jerusalem District Court ruled that Seattle native Susan Barclay should be released and allowed to stay in the country through March 10th. Susan, her lawyers, and co-peacekeepers are currently considering their legal options to challenge the March 10th deadline.

At 5:20 am this morning, the Israeli police literally dragged Susan onto a KLM Airlines flight but due to her physical resistance onboard and the defiance of airline personnel, they were forced to take her off the plane. It was the second time the Interior Ministry had tried to fly her out since her removal from the Mikhal Detention Facility.

The attempted secret deportation directly violated the February 23rd ruling of Hadera District Court in Susan's favor. Susan had been detained Thursday, February 20th, during the Israeli military's incursion into Nablus, Palestine where she had been working as a peacekeeper for 10 months. Her lack of access to an attorney and the lack of criminal charges against her were among the many violations of her human rights recognized in the Geneva Convention.

Susan's case has provoked an increased awareness of the scandalous duplicity of the Israeli judicial system, in which thousands of Palestinians are being held in "administrative detention" with no criminal charges filed against them. Supporters of Susan from all over the United States managed to tie up many of the 75 phone lines at the Israeli Embassy on February 27th.
