A former PLO terrorist turned supporter of Israel was stopped by immigration officials as he boarded a flight to Vancouver. The incident involving Walid Shoebat occurred Monday at a California airport. Shoebat has been warmly welcomed by Jewish audiences across the United States and Canada in recent months, including one in Winnipeg. Shoebat, who grew up in a village near Bethlehem and now lives in northern California, was scheduled to deliver an anti-terrorism lecture in Vancouver.
