An Israeli border police officer stands next to left-wing activists protesting outside a police station in Ashdod, southern Israel, Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2010. Israeli naval forces on Tuesday intercepted a catamaran carrying nine Jewish activists as they sailed toward the Gaza Strip. Israeli forces encountered no resistance taking control of the sailboat and escorted to the Israeli port of Ashdod, the military said. The incident occurred four months after a deadly Israeli raid on an international flotilla, in which nine Turkish activists were killed in clashes with naval commandos. Banners in Hebrew read "Drugs = security hazard?!", left, and "Prostheses are dangerous?!". (AP Photos/Dan Balilty) less
