ISRAELI MINISTERS, FEARED BEING ARRESTED, IN BRITAIN, FOR WAR CRIMES.
HAS MADE THEM CANCELLED THEIR TRIPS TO BRITAIN,
IN ORDER TO AVOID BEING ARRESTED, FOR WAR CRIMES,
AGAINST THE PALESTINIANS.
Israeli cabinet ministers, has been avoiding travel to Britain, for
sometime now, because of the efforts, that has been made, by Palestinian
activists, living in Britain, to have them arrested, for committing war crimes
and other crimes against humanity, against the Palestinians.
The Israeli Defence Force minister, Avi Benayahu, says that he has travelled
to Britain, under a false name, in regards to this. Others has also avoided
Britain, including, the Israeli minister Tzipi Livni, who also cancelled her
trip to London, when an arrest warrant was issued for her, by the British
government, in 2009, because of her involvement, in actions, that were taken
against the Palestinians.
Israli minister, Ehud Barak, also faced an arrest warrant, while in
Britain, as also Avi Dichter, who also cancelled his trip to Britain, in
September of that same year. Brigadiere General, Aviv Kochavi, who was also shceduled to study there, but was warned not to go to Britain, for those same reasons. And Avi Ditcher, former head of Shin Bet, Israeli Security Agency, also cancelled his trip to Britain, when he was public security minister.
Effort were being made by Palestinian activists, living in Britain, against
the Israeli government ministers, to have them arrested, for war crimes, against
the Palestinians, when they entered Britain. The British government, has also changed some of its opinions on this matter. It has told the Israeli government, through its foreign minister, William Hague, that no more attempts will be made,
to arrest any of its ministers, for any war crimes, when they set foot on British soil. This ls also little comfort, to some of them, who do not believe, totally, what the British government is also saying, because of the very serious claused, that they have also used, in the arrest warrants, that were made against some of those Israeli minisers, which, the British government, has also now promised to change, as a result of their "new dialogue" with the Isreali government, to stop this action against that government.
