Allow Mazen Salahaldin to travel

We deplore the fact that the Israeli border guards have twice refused to allow Mazen Salahaldin, Headmaster of Abu Dis Boys’ School and leader of  CADFA Youth visit summer 2013 to cross the border to Jordan and travel to the UK with a group of children on an international exchange.

If he was accused of something wrong, he should be charged. But Mazen was given no reason for this refusal to let him travel. He is a headteacher and an appropriate responsible person for leading a group of children on an exchange.

We therefore demand that his  right to travel should be restored and that he should be sent a letter saying so.
