The Tzlippery Slope

December 15, 2009

David Milliband doesn’t seem to realize that Tzipi Livni, who wasn’t arrested last week as she didn’t arrive in the UK, is not an “Israeli leader.”

Our Foreign Secretary said today that “Israel is a strategic partner and a close friend of the UK…We are determined to protect and develop these ties. Israeli leaders – like leaders from other countries – must be able to visit and have a proper dialogue with the British government.”

As a result, “The Government is looking urgently at ways in which the UK system might be changed in order to avoid this sort of situation arising again.”

Yet Tzipi Livni is not an “Israeli leader.” She is an ex-Foreign Minister and as the head of the political party Kadima. Generally, opposition politicians do not enjoy immunity around the world – and in any case, human rights which respect the immunity of butchers is pretty intolerable.

The fact that Milliband is seeking to erase what few means we have in this country of pursuing mass murderers when they arrive in this country is sickening.
