Israeli court not to deport French professor

Sept. 17, 2018 3:41 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 18, 2018 3:22 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli court reversed a deportation order against French activist, Frank Romano, after the court had earlier released him from detention to deport him after being accused of "disruptions" at Khan al-Ahmar village, east of Jerusalem.

Romano, a 66-year-old law professor at the University of Paris and author of "Love and Terror in the Middle East," and a holder of a French and American citizenship, was detained last week at Khan al-Ahmar, as he protested Israel's intention to demolish the Bedouin village.

He declared a hunger strike following his detention, calling on Israel to not demolish the village of Khan al-Ahmar.

Romano was then released and allowed to return to the village; where he will continue to protest the demolition in solidarity with the residents, in attempt to prevent the demolition.

Romano was supporting residents of Khan al-Ahmar for the past several days, where protesters have gathered for an open sit-in following the Israeli High Court's approval of demolition.

Khan al-Ahmar has been under threat of demolition by Israeli forces; the demolition would leave more than 35 Palestinian families displaced, as part of an Israeli plan to expand the nearby illegal Israeli settlement of Kfar Adummim.

Last week, the Committee against the Wall and Settlements declared that they will appeal the Israeli High Court's decision, which approved the demolition of the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, at international courts rather than Israeli courts.
