Livni cancels UK appearance fearing arrest warrant for war crimes

By Adam Horowitz on December 14, 2009

The Jewish Chronicle reports:

Israeli opposition leader Tzipi Livni canceled a visit to Britain this weekend over fears pro-Palestinian lawyers would seek to have her arrested.

Ms Livni had been due to speak at Sunday’s JNF Vision 2010 conference in Hendon, north-west London. She had also been expected to meet Prime Minister Gordon Brown for private talks.

But she pulled out of the trip for fear of lawyers obtaining an arrest warrant.

International law experts from the Israeli Foreign and Justice ministries have also advised Israeli officials to avoid Spain, Belgium and Norway, out of fear of similar “universal jurisdiction” arrest warrants for war crimes.

Haaretz reports that an arrest warrant for Livni was in fact issued for her role in last winter’s Israeli attack on Gaza. Although Livni’s office has said she canceled her appearance due to “a scheduling conflict,” they also said that “the opposition leader was proud of all the decisions she made as foreign minister during the Gaza war.”

  1. This kind of well needed action by the world court is exactly what is needed for leaders in Israel thinking they are above the law. They are not and their dehumanization of the Palestinians, resulting in a response of “terrorism” does not exclude them from being held accountable.

  3. Put a bounty on her. Wanted for war crimes. There should be hunters willing and able to snatch her for a reward of one million dollars, dead or alive.

  7. Stange how she is now in the same catagory as John Demjanjuk; namely being a potential war criminal depending on where she steps foot.

    Hey what goes around comes around

    Lots of more Jewish war criminals to be found, what about Solomon Morel surely he should be the next “big” criminal to see the inside of a courtroom. He was a “nazi” but worse.

  8. It is high time these killers were brought to justice. They are not true Jews in any sense of the word. They are just murdering bastards.
