A locally-based pro-Palestinian activist is detained by Israeli police forces after protesting at Ben-Gurion international airport near Tel Aviv, Israel Friday, July 8, 2011. Scores of pro-Palestinian protesters trying to reach Israel were blocked at airports in Europe and two American activists who arrived in Israel were deported early Friday, Israeli officials said, after Israel increased security at the airport ahead of the activists' arrival and asked foreign airlines to prevent blacklisted travelers from boarding Israel-bound flights.
