Sylvia Hale and Vivienne Porzsolt flew yesterday from Athens to Tel Aviv to participate in the “Welcome to Palestine” initiative.

Neither Vivienne nor Sylvia has committed any crime but they have been honest with Israeli authorities about their intention to visit Palestine and their Palestinian friends.
