Activists came bearing gifts. They included writing implements for children beginning their school year. They arrived at Jordan's Allenby Bridge crossing in two buses. One vehicle entered Israel. Passengers were denied permission to disembark.

Their passports were collected and stamped "denied entry." The other bus was prevented from leaving Jordan. Many activists participating did so earlier. They know how Israel responds. They come anyway because it's the right thing to do.

Internationals only get in by falsifying reasons for coming. Human rights supporters and others say when governments don't act responsibly, they must respond in protest.

Occupied Palestinians face regular assaults, incursions, air attacks, home break-ins, targeted assassinations, home demolitions, other property vandalized and destroyed, dispossessions, land theft, arrests, detention with or without charges, torture, and other forms of daily state terror.

Yet they persist. Their struggle continues. They do it despite ruthless Israeli persecution. Washington wholeheartedly supports it. Other Western countries either go along, turn a blind eye, or resort to empty rhetorical support.

Hopefully decades of courageous resistance will prevail over unconscionable Israeli injustice. Along with persecuted people everywhere, Palestinians deserve what they've been long denied.
