War Crimes Trials?

Activists attempt to bring charges against the Israeli leadership in the international court system.

Bracing for a onslaught of international lawsuits, Israeli officials responsible for ordering and executing the Gaza offensive are now facing the very real possibility of being arrested and tried for war crimes in the ICC. An activist site launched from within Israel has issued arrest warrants for Tzipi Livni, Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak and urges anyone who has knowledge of the suspects’ plans for international travel to immediately contact The Hague. The age of Israeli impunity seems to be giving way to a harsh new reality.

We cant deal with all the worlds evils in one go but Israel has committed many evils in its short history and it is way past the time to deal with it. So if you have any morality, stop blubbering and do something now Speaking as an Israeli with morality - and a proud Jew, I'll tell you all some home truths. If you haven't got the guts to deal with the real genocidists on the planet, the Sudanese and Rwandans - and obviously nobody on this list has that kind of moxie - stay out of our affairs. It's none of your business what we do here in Israel. To be blunt, the Arab terrorists in Gaza got what they deserved - they deserved far more deaths: something that can yet be accomplished by executing the terrorists who now are daily fed by the Israel Prison Service. There is no reason to feed this human trash when Jews in this country are going hungry or homeless. As for those of you blubbering about our half-hearted attempts to defend ourselves, you haven't a moral leg to stand on. YOUR GRANDPARENTS DID NOTHING TO STOP THE SATANIC EVIL OF THE NAZIS. So, you have no right to open your mouths now. Your grandparents, by ignoring our plight 70 years ago, stripped you any moral authority. FULL STOP. Thus, IMHO, the appropriate response to the Norwegians who have decided to issue arrest warrants for Tzipora Livni, Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert is to close down the Norwegian Embassy in Tel Aviv, recall our ambassador in Oslo, get him and his family out of Norway, THEN seize the Norwegian ambassador and his staff, and tell the Norwegian government that as long as they are considering actions which constitute acts of war against the Jewish State, their ambassador and his staff can rot in an Israeli jail. If the Norskies want to send soldiers over, we can always transship them back to Norway in body bags on the next Maersk liner docking here.... Mind you all, I think that Tzipora Livni, Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert, along with Shimon Peres and others, should be arrested, tried for treason and hung by the neck (the penalty for treason in Israel). But that is OUR BUSINESS not yours. If you can't deal with the true evils in the world, stay out of our affairs and be grateful we don't interfere in yours.
