Israel plans to deport a British journalist believed to be linked to a pro-Palestinian group. Eva Jasiewicd, 26, was detained Wednesday upon arrival at Ben-Gurion Airport after authorities determined she was using an assumed name, possibly to mask her association with the International Solidarity Movement, officials said. On Thursday, the Defense Ministry ordered her deported by the weekend. An Israeli lawyer hired by Jasiewicd filed a petition against the decision. Israeli officials accuse the organizations of abetting Palestinian terrorist groups in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
