The Jewish Chronicle reported yesterday that Israeli War Criminal Mrs Tzipi Livni is heading to Britain following the amendment of Britain’s universal jurisdiction law.
Under the old terms, ethically driven British citizens were able to apply for an arrest warrant for suspected war criminals. That meant that Israeli political and military leaders were strictly advised to stay away from this kingdom.
Legislation has now brought a new requirement aimed at preventing the courts from being used by morally driven individuals. The in-justice secretary, Ken Clarke, outlined how changes would give the Director of Public Prosecutions veto power over arrest warrants.
Mrs Livni was at a risk of being arrested due to her direct role in Operation Cast Lead, 2009.
The recent change of Britain's Universal Law of jurisdiction was the outcome of some relentless Israeli Lobby pressure. As it happens, the Jewish Lobby in Britain promotes foreign interests in our midst but it also damages the ethical scope of British legislation. It clearly manages to derail Britain’s ethical stand.
What British citizens receive in return is indeed an open question. It is about time Britain reinstated its independence. It is about time it is run from London rather than from Jerusalem.
