British authorities planned to arrest Israeli ex-general

It's nothing new that the British put on such lowbrow shows of hypocrisy - and stupidity. It's been reported today in the UK Guardian (via Bloghead) that the UK police were going to arrest a retired general who was flying to Britain to help raise funds for disabled children for "war crimes" during the late-80s intifada perpetrated by the Arabs:
The arrest warrant was issued on Saturday at Bow Street magistrates court, central London. It is believed to be the first warrant for war crimes of its kind issued in Britain against an Israeli national over conduct in the conflict with Palestinians.

Despite the alleged offences occurring in the Gaza Strip, war crimes law means Britain has a duty to arrest and prosecute alleged suspects if they arrive in Britain. The warrant alleges Mr Almog committed war crimes in the Gaza Strip in 2002 when he ordered the destruction of 59 homes near Rafah, which Palestinians say was in revenge for the death of Israeli soldiers. The warrant was issued by senior district judge Timothy Workman after an application by lawyers acting for Mr Almog's alleged Palestinian victims. According to legal sources, before granting the warrant Mr Workman decided his court had jurisdiction for the offences; that diplomatic immunity did not apply; and there was evidence to support a prima facie case for war crimes.

If Mr Almog had been arrested he would have been bailed on condition that he did not leave Britain. The attorney general would have to have sanctioned any prosecution against him for war crimes.
Naturally, this is all more important and meaningful to the British than the murderous deeds committed in past years by PLO terrorists like the now thankfully deceased Yasir Arafat, or even Mahmoud Abbas himself, or even the Hamas's own murderous deeds. If that's how Britain is going to continue to behave, then I'd figure it best to boycott the country, and would not consider it worth visiting or living in either.
