On October 10, 2015 Amin Husain was denied entry into Palestine while returning to be with family and friends. He was deported by Israel after 15 hours of detention, interrogation, a strip search and a body cavity search, the offical reason given was for the “prevention of illegal immigration” and “public security or public safety or public order consideration.” Husain writes, “I am not the first Palestinian to be denied entry into their homeland nor will I be the last. But it is clear that Israel has escalated this practice and we should discover effective ways to fight back.”
