The e-petition had 91,426 signatures on Tuesday. The UK Government has ruled out arresting the PM of Israel.
A petition to the UK parliament calling for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be arrested for war crimes when he arrives for a state visit later this month has gained nearly 100,000 signatures.
The e-petition had 91,426 signatures on Tuesday. However, despite nearly reaching the 100,000 target that would allow it to be considered for debate in parliament, the UK government has ruled out arresting Netanyahu when he arrives in London.
In its response to the call for his arrest over the deaths of Palestinians during Israel’s Gaza offensive last year, the government said: “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.”
Damian Moran, a software designer from Manchester, northwest England, told Anadolu Agency he launched the petition on Aug. 7 because “I have had enough”.
The petition calls for Netanyahu to be arrested under international law over the “massacre of over 2,000 civilians in 2014.”
I am sure a lot of Muslim immigrants to he UK rejoiced over 90.000 signatures for the arrest of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Had they lived in 1938, they would have hailed the Nazis rounding up Jews in Berlin too. Let this also be a warning to the natives of UK, who have signed this petittion.
The rise of antisemitism in London is alarming. The state of Israel is the only functioning democracy in the Middle East. The Zionist state is a oasis of liberty surrounded by totalitarian regimes, some of them middle age styled Islamic dictatorships.
That 2.000 people in Gaza lost their life in the last islamic war on Israel, is regrettable. Sill the number is less than one per cent of the people killed in the barbaric Syrian civil war. In Gaza, the killed persons at large were Islamic terrorists who kept on firing missiles into Israel, overruling several warnings from the IDF. Israel have both common sense and international law on her side.
I have still not seen a petition for the arrest of Syrian president Basher al-Assad. Or what about sending the Ayatollah of Iran behind bars? Why not issue an arrest warrant for the leaders of Boko Haram?
The level of hypocrisy in London has just started to give a foul smell. Did all these anti-democratic elements come up from the gutters?
May Jesus the Messiah have mercy on all deceived souls. Amen.
