BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Benjamin Ladraa is a Swedish human rights activist, who walked 4,800 km through 13 countries over a span of 11 months to raise awareness about the Palestinian cause.

Ma'an News Agency interviewed Ladraa after Israeli authorities banned him from entering Palestine upon his arrival at the Allenby Bridge, the Jordanian-Palestinian borders, in July.

During the interview, Ladraa said that "they (Israeli authorities) treated me not too bad, I mean, it's not comparable to what Palestinians are going through when they are arrested in the middle of the night from their homes and tortured."
