    TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- A member of Israel's parliament narrowly escaped an arrest warrant issued for him in London over the weekend for suspicion of war crimes, Israeli media reported.

    Under advice from the security officials in Israel, Yedioth reported, Peretz pushed his return up from Sunday to Saturday evening -- a crucial move as the warrant was issued right after his departure.

    Well lets put this in perspective

    You won't need to look hard to find complaints about the arrest of Sheikh Raed Salah

    LONDON, (PIC)-- British authorities have postponed the appeal hearing of Sheikh Raed Salah, leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, due to the absence of a judge that has the power to decide in his case.

    The leader of 1.7 million Israeli Arabs was detained a week ago under a travel ban that he learned about after entering the country to give a series of lectures.

    Meantime, Israeli media sources say former Israeli Minister of Security Amir Peretz managed to evade an arrest warrant for war crimes issued in the UK as he was scheduled to lecture at the London University.

    Sheikh Salah chose to remain in the UK to challenge the deportation decision which was based on allegations of anti-Semitism.

    Authorities have allowed Salah legal visitation and his lawyers met with him for two hours without barriers in the Bedford immigration detention center.

    Zahi Nujeidat, a lawyer and spokesman of the Islamic Movement in 1948-occupied Palestine, expressed optimism regarding Salah’s case. He said that if Salah wanted to comply with Britain’s orders he could have left for his country at any moment.

    Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonoth said former Israeli security minister Amir Peretz was able to escape from England from an arrest warrant over accusations of committing war crimes during Israel’s 2006 war with Lebanon.

    He was able to evade arrest and flee the country before police got to him, according to the source.

    That certainly interfered with his plans of spreading islamistic evil and lies.

    And some wonder why Britain is being tossed away by America.

    Britain has tossed the West away and allowed Muslims to gain much power.

    That of course is what it is about and making sure our Government is not acting in a biased way. The issue you introduced concerns

    Universal Jurisdiction | Amnesty International

    We have had a problem recently with Pro Israelis wanting to get the law changed so that Israeli suspected war criminals will not be arrested and will be able to come here freely

    Defend Universal Jurisdiction | Jews for Justice for Palestinians

    I know this has gone through Parliament, I think it has been sent to committee...but both major parties used to want to make this change to excuse Israelis - Ed Miliband's view on Israel are not really known yet. He is keeping them close to his chest.

    The second issue is extremely nebulous - keeping out people who are viewed as a threat to the country and was introduced after 9/11. This is what Sheikh Salah is detained about. If there was a problem he should have been told what the problem was before he arrived so that he could appeal and he clearly should not have been allowed in. But allowed in he was and gave talks both in Parliament and other places which gave absolutely no cause for concern...so there is concern about why he was deemed to be a threat and concerns that this is illustrating bias in the UK government.

    Ropey clearly missed the point. Israel, it would seem was given the nod and the wink about the arrest warrant for Peretz so they could tell him and he could escape before arrest. The bias being shown is towards not against Israel.

    You can never debate can you, you always wet yourself and get in a tiz..you just cannot argue a point, you need to abuse.

    I suspect the reason is you have no argument.

    Timore began by saying how Peretz had escaped the UK and avoided arrest. I thought that that gave a suggestion that the UK was anti Israel and that that was indeed a wrong evaluation. In order to show this I illustrated the treatment Sheikh Raed Salah was receiving as opposed to Danny Rothschild in order to show that if the UK government currently has a bias it would appear to be pro Israeli. Ropey seemed to think it was the UK government who wanted to arrest him rather than law as Tinmore pointed out so I clarified it.......and then you come on with this diarrhoea

    Only people who are wanted for war crimes can be arrested under Universal Jurisdiction.

    It is so with Peretz

    Wanted: Amir Peretz

    You know that Israel used new rules of law in Lebanon 2006 The Dahiya Doctrine which allowed her not to abide by the rules of war concerning proportionality and care of civilians.


    Dahiya doctrine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You know I do not have any respect for you because you cannot debate but only insult and normally ignore your posts. I have replied to your abuse this one time...but that is it. Enjoy!
