Israeli court expels ISM pro-terror activist

The Tel Aviv District Court ordered a pro-Palestinian American activist deported from the country Monday, the latest move against a foreign group opposing Israeli military activity in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

A Tel Aviv District Court judge ordered Adam Wilson, a 28-year-old union organizer from New Orleans, Louisiana, to leave Israel by Tuesday.

Wilson is affiliated with the International Solidarity Movement, a Palestinian-sponsored group in the forefront of protests against IDF military operations and the security fence Israel is building.

ISM activists have sometimes disrupted IDF operations by placing themselves between soldiers and Palestinians.
