E-mails promote trips to Israel

BAHRAINIS are being urged to ignore e-mails allegedly being circulated by an Arab group promoting trips to Tel Aviv, Israel.

The e-mails by the Reconciliation Charity Society say that it is carrying tourism and political trips to Israel in December.

In the trips, visitors will be able to meet with top Israeli officials and hold political training courses for tolerance among religions and create strong relations with countries in the Middle East, says the society.

Bahraini Society Against Normalisation with the Zionist Enemy newly elected president Badriya Ali said that the e-mails should be ignored.

"The Israelis are killing our brothers every day and yet there are some Arabs, who are heartless, promoting this terrorist country just for money," he said.

"We know that there are a few trying with every mean possible to normalise ties with the Zionists, but Bahrainis can't be deceived with their scams.

"It is true that the Israeli ban office in Bahrain has been closed down, but that doesn't mean that Bahrainis should compromise their principles to go on such trips.

"Bahrainis are not banned from going to Israel and have never been, but no one has ever thought of going there."

She said that even people thinking of going to Israel, should think twice because they were going to a dangerous state, where Arabs and other nationals are being killed.

One of the e-mail recipients said that the promoter was an Arab businessman who was chatting with him on the Internet and constantly sent out such promotions to youth in GCC states.
