£50 for an Audience with Israeli “Justice” Minister on War Crimes Wanted List

50 for an Audience with Israeli Justice Minister on War Crimes Wanted List

By Stuart Littlewood

The 2014 Annual Congress of the University and College Union Scotland (UCU Scotland) has voted unanimously to condemn the planned visit by Israel’s Tzipi Livni, wanted for war crimes, says StopTheJNF.

In 2009 Livni cancelled a visit to London when she discovered an arrest warrant had been issued against her, along with Ehud Barak and retired general Doron Almog, on the grounds that she had been a member of the Israeli war cabinet which organised the slaughter of more than a 1400 Palestinians. In 2011 she was given a rare diplomatic passport by the UK Government to protect her from further risk of arrest and prosecution.

People are now being invited to pay 50 for an “audience” with this appalling woman at a provocative meeting of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) to be held at a secret central London venue on 15th May. UCU Scotland Congress has called on Home Secretary Theresa May to refuse Livni entry to the UK.

It’s provocative because 15th May is Nakba (Catastrophe) Day, when Palestinians remember the Zionist blitz of ethnic cleansing in 1948 immediately before and after Israel declared statehood on 14th May. 750,000 Palestinians were driven from the homes and farmlands by Jewish terror gangs and Israeli militia creating the worlds largest refugee population. Others were massacred in the process. During 1947-50 the JNF is said to have provided information to Zionist militia to facilitate the murder and expulsion of Palestinians.

Israels illegal occupation, ethnic cleansing, land theft, house demolitions, blockade and restrictions on movement have continued for 66 years. Therefore pulling such a stunt on Nakba Day is pretty sick.

StopTheJNF are urging a letter-writing campaign to MPs asking them to request the Home Secretary to block Livni’s visit, which they say is an incitement to hatred. They explain that the JNF is a Zionist organisation established in 1901 for the purpose of obtaining Palestinian land for the sole use of Jewish settlers and excluding Palestinians from their own lands. It has obliterated pre-1948 Arab villages by planting forests and parks. JNF UK, believe it or not, enjoys charitable status. Tony Blair and Gordon Brown are honorary patrons; so was Agent Cameron until he removed himself from the shameful list, under pressure it is claimed. Brown said Livni was “most welcome in Britain any time”.

Tzipi Livni is accused of war crimes because of her role in the indiscriminate bombing of Palestinians in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. For her to speak at an event hosted by an organisation implicated in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine on a day when the world is remembering the victims of that heinous act, would be a racist provocation, say StopTheJNF.

The Home Secretary recently barred Dieudonn , the French comedian who does the Dr Strangelove salute that’s now claimed to be antisemitic. He has been in all kinds of trouble for allegedly inciting racial hatred, but he’s a harmless pussycat compared to the bloodsoaked Livni.

Tzipi Livni, amusingly described as Justice Minister and Chief Peace Negotiator, is no ordinary hatemonger. She’s an A-list Zio-psychopath steeped in terror and violence. Her father Eitan and her mother were both prominent members of the Irgun, the terrorist outfit that bombed the King David Hotel, the headquarters of the British Mandatory Government, in 1946 killing 91. She also served in Mossad, Israel’s intelligence and assassination agency.

Livni, as Israel’s Foreign Minister, was up to her pretty neck in the slaughter inflicted by Operation Cast Lead on Gaza. She has shown no remorse. And when over 1,400 Gazans (including 320 children and 109 women) had been shredded, mangled and incinerated, and thousands more horribly maimed, her office issued a statement saying she was proud of the operation. Speaking at a conference at Tel Aviv’s Institute for Security Studies, she said: I would today take the same decisions.”

Sheltering Israel’s terrorists

The Fourth Geneva Convention is supposed to protect civilians under military occupation. no violence to life or person, no cruelty or torture; no taking of hostages; no outrages upon personal dignity; no collective punishment, no sentencing or executions unless ordered by a properly constituted court affording all the judicial guarantees demanded by civilised peoples.

In the wake of Israels 22-day devastation of Gaza and wholesale murder of its civilians the Zionist regime not only blocked humanitarian and reconstruction aid but also denied access to teams investigating allegations of war crimes.

Former UN Special Rapporteur Professor Richard Falk put the ongoing war crimes problem quite simply when he said: “The idea of Nuremberg after World War 2 was that crimes against the peace, crimes against humanity and war crimes are also offences against the whole of international society. The law that was applied to surviving German criminals of WW2 wouldn’t be respected unless those who sat in judgment upheld it in relation to their own behaviour.

“Universal jurisdiction is part of the struggle against impunity for the Israeli military and the country’s political leaders, said Falk. Israel enjoyed impunity because it didn’t call those who violated international criminal law to account and because the US, and to some extent EU, had insulated Israel from its responsibilities as a sovereign state.

The UN’s Goldstone report and the international law panel appointed after the Gaza flotilla incident also raised the issues of impunity and accountability. Falk feels that the most effective way of implementing international law is now through the activism of civil society and through national legal institutions.

Universal Jurisdiction is – or was – a good tool for the job. A private individual could apply to a magistrate for an arrest warrant if he had serious evidence. The Attorney General’s consent was needed for the prosecution to go ahead, but even if that consent was withheld the magistrate might still issue a warrant if he considered there were reasonable grounds for suspecting a war crime had been committed and admissible evidence established this.

The bringing of a private prosecution for a criminal offence is an ancient right in common law and, in the words of Lord Wilberforce, “a valuable constitutional safeguard against inertia or partiality on the part of the authority.” And the beauty of the private warrant is that it can be issued speedily. Lord Diplock, another respected Lord of Appeal, called it a useful safeguard against capricious, corrupt or biased failure or refusal of those authorities to prosecute offenders against the criminal law”.

And that’s precisely what we’re up against – a capricious, corrupt and biased administration that wants to let ‘friendly’ war criminals off and protect them from arrest while they visit Britain. The government argued that foreign politicians, no matter how blood-soaked, should never be made to feel unwelcome and that the Law of Universal Jurisdiction impeded Britain’s ability to use its diplomatic powers. So the law has been changed for the benefit of Livni and her gruesome colleagues. Now the Director of Public Prosecutions will consider each application at the arrest warrant stage. This, of course, means political interference and delay, enabling suspects to slip away thanks to the very inertia and partiality Wilberforce warned about.

The principle that no-one, regardless of nationality, should feel able to commit war crimes with impunity, has been jettisoned so that the likes of a former Israeli foreign minister who was responsible for the murderous assault on Gaza’s civilians in 2008/9 – and all the other Israeli thugs for that matter – need no longer fear arrest if they come here.

If a country like Britain, with its proud constitutional tradition, applies international criminal law only to those it doesnt happen to like at the time, such as Saddam Hussein, Slobodan Milosevic or Syria’s Assad, the rule of law which depends on equals being treated equally is utterly discredited. Double standards become very manifest; it also has the effect of saying that geopolitics and foreign policy always trump the law, observed Falk.

The UK, like all other countries that think themselves civilised, is under a solemn obligation to seek out those suspected of having committed grave breaches of the Conventions and bring them, regardless of nationality, to justice. In other words, there should be no hiding place for the worlds vilest criminals.

Over to Mrs May. Does the Home Secretary really see Tzipi Livni as less hateful, less disgusting than Dieudonn ? Let’s see if she has the integrity, if not the balls, to tell Livni her ‘special protection’ passport is revoked and to steer well clear of the UK or face arrest and be carted off the The Hague.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
