:lol: Good luck dude!

he has diplomatic immunity in any case so the UK won't be doing that.

Fuck me, Australia should have arrested Putin last year for being an arsehole and over the downing of MH17 and the troubles in Ukraine. Well Duh! :lol:

100k sigs and it gets a hearing in parliament. That's the least we can do for the victims of Israel's crimes against humanity.

Is Britain suicidal? Putin did send 4 ships for us to practice on and they were all over the place and couldn't even talk to each other. He couldn't wait to leave after that.

You won't even get a hearing in Parliament because that would become a diplomatic incident and Israel would be pissed off.

If the victims have a case, then the ICJ is the place to go to or the UN.

BTW, I would sign the petition if I was British because all victims should have their side of the story told and it was a tragedy to see people get killed.

But I don't agree that this was a war crime at all because a war crime is deliberate wholesale murder, and there was nothing deliberate about Israel killing innocent civilians.

Nevertheless, the victims deserve their justice too.

it seems if you are a prime minister of a country you are allowed to murder people and you would not be arrested. this is the message I got from them.


The Government has responded to the petition you signed – “Benjamin Netanyahu to be arrested for war crimes when he arrives in London”.

Government responded:

Under UK and international law, visiting heads of foreign governments, such as Prime Minister Netanyahu, have immunity from legal process, and cannot be arrested or detained.

The British Government has invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as head of the Israeli Government, to visit the UK in September. Under UK and international law, certain holders of high-ranking office in a State, including Heads of State, Heads of Government and Ministers for Foreign Affairs are entitled to immunity, which includes inviolability and complete immunity from criminal jurisdiction.

We recognise that the conflict in Gaza last year took a terrible toll. As the Prime Minister said, we were all deeply saddened by the violence and the UK has been at the forefront of international reconstruction efforts. However the Prime Minister was clear on the UK’s recognition of Israel’s right to take proportionate action to defend itself, within the boundaries of international humanitarian law. We condemn the terrorist tactics of Hamas who fired rockets on Israel, built extensive tunnels to kidnap and murder, and repeatedly refused to accept ceasefires. Israel, like any state, has the right to ensure its own security, as its citizens also have the right to live without fear of attack.

The UK consistently urged Israel to do everything possible to avoid civilian casualties, to exercise restraint, and to help find ways to bring the situation to an end. The UK continues to urge the parties to give priority to reaching a durable solution for Gaza which addresses the underlying drivers of conflict, and to take the necessary practical steps to ensure Gaza’s reconstruction and economic recovery.

We welcome the fact that Israel is conducting internal investigations into specific incidents during Operation Protective Edge. Where there is evidence of wrongdoing those responsible must be held accountable whatever their position in society. Both parties must also demonstrate robust and credible internal investigations which are in line with international standards. We have also encouraged the Israeli authorities, as we do all countries, to cooperate with the independent Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) regarding the preliminary examination into the situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories since 13 June, 2014, whilst noting that Israel is not a State Party to the ICC.

The UK is a close friend of Israel and we enjoy an excellent bilateral relationship, built on decades of cooperation between our two countries across a range of fields. Our priority for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict remains the achievement of a two-state solution, based on 1967 borders. We continue to believe that negotiations will be necessary in order to achieve this, and that both parties need to focus on steps that are conducive to peace. The UK Government will reinforce this message to Mr Netanyahu during his visit.

Ask them to explain the arrest of Slobodan Milosevic.

Ok here is some Geneva Convention 101 for fools and idiots.

What constitutes a war crime?

The NAZI deportations of Jews and their mass slaughter is a war crime.

Summary executions of civilians by NAZIs constitute a war crime.

The summary execution of POWs is a war crime.

A TAF airstrike on Polis in 1967 is NOT a war crime if civilians were killed unless it is proven that it was deliberate.

TAF Airstrikes in Cyprus are NOT a war crime if civilians were killed unless deliberate.

Turkish executions of captured Cypriot soldiers is a war crime.

The execution of Cypriot civilians is a war crime.

The rape of women is a war crime.

Turkish Ethnic cleansing in Cyprus is a war crime!

The slaughter of YAZIDI and Turkmen civilians cannot be a war crime because DAESH are not a State and they are not a legal combatant hence the Geneva Convention does not apply to them but it does apply to coalition forces.

school children are caught in the crossfire between 2 opposing combatants and are killed, is not a war crime.

Civilians killed by land mines is not a war crime.

IAF Airstrikes on GAZA are not war crimes because the killing of civilians was not deliberate within the declared zones of Military Operations.

So boys, no leg to stand on I'm afraid!

Therefore, all Kafeneio type charges against Israel are dismissed!

Further to this, your idiocy belittles real war crimes wherever they have occurred. Unfortunately innocent civilians get killed, but that does not mean a war crime has been committed.

The law is explicit and clear!

Consider a war crime to be similar to first degree murder with intent. Anything that is not first degree and without intent cannot constitute a war crime.

Next idiots please! :D
