 When discussing before the House of Commons a change in British law that would ultimately harbor war criminals, MP Gerald Kaufman labeled former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni “the daughter of a war criminal and terrorist”, adding that she was involved in the bloody Operation Cast Lead against the Gaza Strip and the Freedom Flotilla massacre, among a list of other crimes against the Palestinians.

The British Parliament saw heated debates this week when discussing an amendment to the British law that would empower the Public Prosecutor with the rigth to veto arrest warrants issued against war criminals who set foot on British soil. Critics of the law change say the bill was designed to permit Israeli war criminals entry to England without fearing prosecution.

Kaufman said that a change in the law would mean scratching out the few punitive measures, thereby allowing Israeli politicians to enter Britian and evade legal prosecution for the crimes of murder and war.

Lawyers, politicians, religious figures, and many others have called on the British government to refrain from passing the amendment.

Israel announced last November it would freeze strategic bilateral dialogue with the UK unless the latter reconsidered its war crime laws. Shortly after, British Foreign Minister Wiliam Hague said his country would amend a law that currently allows the state to prosecute foreigners accused of humanitarian and war crimes.
