British Police Summon Former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni Over ‘War Crimes’


by Deborah Danan 3 Jul 2016

TEL AVIV – Israel’s former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni was summoned last week by British police for questioning on suspicion of war crimes committed during the IDF’s 2008 Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip, prompting the Zionist Union number two to slam the British legal system as “the theater of the absurd.”

Livni received diplomatic immunity following her receipt of the summons, according to Haaretz.

The Israeli embassy in London received a summons ahead of Livni’s arrival in the country for Haaretz‘s diplomatic conference asking her to appear of her own volition at Scotland Yard’s war crimes bureau.

During Israel’s three-week defensive war with the Hamas terrorist group, Livni served as foreign minister, deputy prime minister, and a member of the diplomatic-security cabinet of then-prime minister Ehud Olmert’s government.

Pro-Palestinian groups in the UK have made many attempts to charge Livni with war crimes, but last week’s police summons was unprecedented.

Speaking Sunday at the conference in London, Livni, who also served as justice minister and headed up peace talks with Palestinians, said the situation could not continue.

“The fact that Israeli decision-makers and army commanders are forced to participate in a ‘theater of the absurd’ when we come to London is something that is not acceptable,” she said. “It’s not a personal issue. It’s a moral issue and this is something that needs to be changed.”

She added that she was “proud of the decisions I made as a cabinet minister in the Israeli government.”

Zionist Union chief Isaac Herzog asked that British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond change the law that allows Israeli politicians to be questioned – especially in light of the wave of recent terror attacks against Israelis.

Herzog said that “attempting to question MK Tzipi Livni makes a mockery of the British government’s calls for unity in fighting radical Islamist terror, and legitimizes those that seek to murder children and terrorize society.”

    Tzipi Livni, a former Israeli minister as well as a war criminal, spoke at Harvard Law School last week. During the Q&A session, a student got up and asked Livni ‘how is it that you are so smelly?’ Some Jews were offended and interpreted the comments as being anti-Semitic.

    The student, a third-year male law student who is president of a pro-Palestine group, has since apologised. The student claims not to have known that attributing smelliness to Jews is a well established anti-Semitic stereotype.

    “We entered the synagogue, which was packed with the greatest stinking bunch of humanity I have ever seen. When we got about halfway up, the head rabbi, who was dressed in a fur hat similar to that worn by Henry VIII of England and in a surplice heavily embroidered and very filthy, came down and met the General (Eisenhower)…The smell was so terrible that I almost fainted and actually about three hours later lost my lunch as the result remembering it.”

      This is something which offends me greatly though I tend to remain silent upon such..

      Many women appear, as they move around, to leave behind a detestably unpleasant and pungent smell.

      The cartoon Cow and Chicken attributed this solely to elderly women as “Granny’s Tangy Bouquet” but as women today seemingly fail to maintain reasonable standards of hygiene it appears to be a mater almost of a majority of women’s tangy bouquet, which reminds us that society is declining in so many ways.

      Personally I hate leaving home without having showered should I offended others as well as doing so makes me feel/look unclean.

      If I have missed the point please feel free to explain these horrible smells.
