Interesting but ominous item I caught today. If you visit Palestine, all the more reason to stay away from demonstrations:

Israeli army raids Palestinian city, arrests foreign tourists
Feb 08, 2010

The Israeli army swept into Ramallah in the West Bank Sunday in a pre-dawn raid to arrest two Western tourists.

The women were seized from a Ramallah home where they were staying, after soldiers broke down the door. The two had taken part in protests against the Israeli barrier which has been constructed throughout the West Bank.

One of the women is from Australia, and the other from Spain.

They were named as Bridgette Chappell, of Australia and Ariadna Jove Marti of Spain.

Twenty soldiers armed with M16 rifles took part in the raid. They confiscated cameras, a computer, pro-Palestinian banners and ISM registration forms, according to Ryan Olander, of the United States who was also staying at the home."
