Israel bounced out of court in Turkey

Many thanks to Joe90 for sending this gem to the Just Peace UK list about an Israeli basketball team being forced to flee the court mid-match because of protests from the audience. Joe gets these bits of news because he's an avid follower of the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign:
"Israel's Bnei Hasharon basketball team departed from Turkey early on Wednesday after their game with Turk Telekom in Euro Cup was suspended on Tuesday due to heavy protest by audience."
