Spanish Court Issues Arrest Warrants for Netanyahu and Senior Israeli Officials

A Spanish court has issued arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other senior Israeli officials for their role in the 2010 attack on the Freedom Flotilla heading to Gaza, local media reported on Friday.

Euro-Mid Observer for Human Rights said that the Supreme Court in Madrid ordered the arrest of ex-foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman, ex-defence minister Ehud Barak, the then-deputy prime ministers Moshe Ya’alon and Eli Yishai, and former state minister Benny Begin, as well as Netanyahu. It also ordered the arrest of Israeli Navy Commander Eliezer Marom, who is among the co-defendants found guilty by the Spanish judge.

According to YaniSafak website, the investigation into this case was launched after Spanish activists on board the main vessel in the flotilla, the Turkish-registered Mavi Marmara, filed a criminal complaint against Israeli officials involved in the raid. YaniSafak said that in June a Spanish court dropped a five-year-old investigation into the raid, but it left open the possibility that the case could be reopened if the specified Israeli officials visited Spain.

Although the case was sent to the Supreme Court, continuous Israeli pressure slowed down the investigations. Nevertheless, said the news website, the judge has sent the list of defendants to the Spanish police, demanding the start of the legal process to issue a red notice for their arrest.

Israeli naval commandos killed nine Turkish peace activists, including one with dual American citizenship, and injured dozens more on board the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara. Spanish activists also took part in the flotilla, which was attempting to break Israel’s illegal blockade of the territory.

      Lynn, please forgive my intrusion, but it won’t matter. I haven’t been on Tap much lately because I’ve been on Face Book, again. I hate it, but decided to try my luck educating people. It is currently a sea of french flags and I have been physically threatened on two occasions for supporting the “terrorist state Palestine” I kid you not. I can’t believe the denial and lack of interest in reality. I’m going to have a breather as I’m frazzled. I will admit that my powers of persuasion are very limited, as are my social skills. I thought reason logic and facts would do it. Sadly all they got me was threats of kickings that it was felt I needed to shut my big mouth.

    Israel to Build Nationwide Fence to Defend Against ‘Beasts’

    Published 9 February 2016.

    http://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/Israel-to-Build-Nationwide-Fence-to-Defend-Against-Beasts-20160209-0045.html

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised to surround the country with security fences in order to protect the nation from what he termed “wild beasts.”

    The Israeli leader used the typically dehumanizing rhetoric on an official tour to Israel’s eastern border, where a security barrier is currently being erected.

    “Will we surround all of the state of Israel with fences and barriers? The answer is yes. In the area that we live in, we must defend ourselves against the wild beasts,” Netanyahu said.

    The Israeli leader also referred to Tel Aviv’s neighbors as “predators.”

    At an estimated cost of US$74.4 million, the new 30-kilometer barrier is being built at the same time as a new airport undergoes construction in the Timna Valley.
