The majority of the group ended up in Ramle Prison. Those of us who are Free Gaza organizers had been hearing some news from them, statements, interviews and letters since they arrived.

05-07-2009 12:58Well, well, the wife of the upcoming MI6”boss” really respects the democratic ideas and open public admin! Its unusual to se the wife of such a “civil servant” reveals that kind of info. But, but, WHAT is her motive? Has Sir John Sawers been out with another woman and getting some thing” on the side”?
