Israel condemns UK attempt to arrest Tzipi Livni


news.bbc.co.uk

Israel has condemned as "cynical" the issuing of a war crimes arrest warrant in the United Kingdom for former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni.

The warrant, issued by a London Court on Saturday, was revoked on Monday when it was found Ms Livni was not visiting the the UK.

Ms Livni was in post during Israel's controversial Gaza assault last winter.

I believe that if she had arrived in the UK, the warrant should have been served. Many of us watched as the conflict in Gaza was broadcast. It would have been very interesting if the warrant had been used, an arrest been made and to hear the evidence if this had actually gone to court.

I can imagine the expletives issuing around the foreign office and how embarrassed they must have felt.

I am still scratching my head over this...

I remember this lady's face constantly being on news during the Gaza war justifying bombing schools and killing of innocent people.

The problem here is that both Palestine and Israel have a deep lack of understanding conflict resolution.
Palestine needs to accept that Israel is a nation, and that thier opinion of that nation is irrelavent when weighed against the international attitude, and Israel needs to accept that continued occupation of territory not given them by internationaly recognised borders is illegal , wrong, immoral, and unjust. If both parties accept that they are variously being stupid and ignorant, then maybe they can finaly learn to live peacefully.
As a christian it makes me angry to know that Jerusalem is being used as a political football, where the score is taken in human life.
The other thing that gets my goat about the conflict , is that Israeli weapons manufacturers are talented enough to build anti missile defense systems capable of shooting bullets out of the air, and bringing down any and all aerial bombardment ammo launched at thier territory. But rather than use these technological advancements, they prefer to let the terrorists launch thier bottle rockets at them, and then take a massive unjustified toll of lives on the other side of the border when it becomes vaugely annoying.
The truth is that every member of both the Israeli government, and the leaders of the various groups acting against Israel, need to be locked up for life.

I dont think it was an EU prank, as mentioned above. This is an example of how the law can sometimes bite its own backside. Diplomatic immunity is not granted to Livni due to her not being in the position of prime minister.

The UK government are in a bit of a flap over this as they want to promote relationships with Israel to aid in ME peace talks

IMO its a breath of fresh air to know that the law is sometimes stronger than the UK PTB.

As I suspected, here they go crying to their Zionist counterparts in the UK

"It called on the British government to "act against the exploitation of the British legal system against Israel".

Who wants to bet on how long it will take before the holocaust is mentioned? I say a week. Anti-Semitic? Possibly a day.

I really hope that justice was planned to be carried out for real. I really hope this was authentic.

Reading between the lines of the reports from various souces it seems that the UK government was taken aback by the whole situation and probably had no knowledge of the warrant being processed. Although I bet it was the very same UK government that warned Israel not to let her visit due to the warrant. It would have been realy interesting had she landed.

It was not done by the British government or the European Union. Please read the article.

A group managed to get a court to issue an arrest warrant for Tzipi Livni. Peter Tatchell, human rights campaigner, managed to get a British judge to issue an arrest warrant for Henry Kissinger - which is STILL standing. Similar legal case was brought against Mugabe, but the court rejected the claims.

I quote part of your post" A group managed to get a court to issue an arrest warrant for Tzipi Livni.", This is what is important within the thread and as op I have not maintained that it was the UK government.

The warrant was legaly processed unlike the one for Ehud Barak applied for earlier this year in September. Baraks was not carried out due to his position granting him diplomatic immunity. Livni does not have diplomatic immunity to hide behind.

Would the warrant have been served? now that is a diffirent question, although I like to think that being Israeli does not exempt your from Uk legal process.......I hope !!!

It would've been.

Whether or not the Crown Prosecution Service (or even the Attorney General) would let the arrest lead to trial is a different discussion. However, the warrant was valid.

Political Distraction!

Watch for something REAL to happen over the next couple weeks. This feels like a novel attempt at pretending to be sympathatic to both sides. There is nothing to see here...Move along...


"We will not agree to have Israel Defence Force soldiers, who defended the citizens of Israel bravely and ethically against a cruel and criminal enemy, be recognised as war criminals. We completely reject this absurdity taking place in Britain,"
OP

? Even if they are guilty??


Israel says it fully complies with international law, which it says it interprets in line with other Western countries such as the US and UK.
OP

This should make me laugh
instead I threw up a little in my mouth


I could publish a book, no, I could publish a book of threads to document this failure of even MSM lies.

Bottom Line: This is, and was meant to be a media farce that will hide or prevent coverage of some small but significant imminent legislation. IMO

The UK government are wanting to change the law so that war crimminals can visit Britain without fear of prosecution:


The Government will consider changing the law to ensure Israeli politicians can enter the UK without fear of arrest, Harriet Harman confirmed yesterday. The Commons Leader made the promise after a British court issued an arrest warrant for former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni at the weekend.
Foreign Secretary David Miliband also backed calls for legal reforms, saying it was vital that senior figures from Israel could visit the UK and have a 'proper dialogue'.
Miss Harman told MPs yesterday 'We should be in no doubt that it's important for Israel's leaders to be able to talk to Government ministers in this country. They are important strategic partners.' Her pledge followed a warning from the Israeli government that without changes to the law Britain would cease to have a major role in the Middle East peace process.

This has taken a matter of hours from the Livni warrant...
The Israeli lobby must be working overtime.

I think, though it will be a very large sign, this statement alone will be what's on the sign I carry at the next [protest] I attend.

first, Ill need a lot of paint.
second, Ill need a large piece of construction paper, or cardboard.
Third, I'll use paintbrushes to paint that phrase on my sign,
Then, I'll let in dry.
When it's dry, i'll nail a 2 by 2 board to my sign.
I'll be good to go for the next protest.

Remember???????????????

I'm afraid the folks were Palestinian group not some EU officials as I wrongly guessed before. There is no justice in the world...I am now convinced of it.
