Apartheid remark slammed in Israel

Jerusalem - An Israeli Supreme Court has chastised an Irish Nobel peace laureate for calling Israel an "apartheid state" during her deportation hearing.

Mairead Corrigan Maguire is under a 10-year ban from entering Israel because of her attempt to breach the Gaza naval blockade aboard a vessel in June.

She was detained last Tuesday upon landing at Tel Aviv international airport but appealed the move and asked the court to allow her into Israel to join a human rights delegation.

Maguire's remark about apartheid during her hearing on Monday prompted Judge Asher Grunis to tell her to keep her "propaganda" to herself.

The government opposed a court-proposed compromise that Maguire be allowed to join the delegation for two days and then leave.

The court is expected to rule later on Monday.
