Feminist Org to Livni: Give Yourself Up
The Israel-based Coalition of Women for Peace has sent a letter to MK Tzipi Livni, who served as Israel’s Foreign Minister during last year’s counter-terrorism offensive in Gaza, siding with those who wish to have her arrested by British authorities for her role in the war.
MK Livni received notice of a warrant for her arrest in Britain this week.
The Coalition of Women sent her a translation of the Goldstone Report on Wednesday, and explained in an attached letter, "We are convinced that if you refer to the report, you will understand why British citizens and organizations have turned to the courts with a request to issue a warrant for your arrest."
The Coalition quotes Livni as having said, on January 13, 2009, that "we have proven to Hamas that the equation has been altered. Israel is a state that, when its citizens are shot at, will respond insanely. And that's a good thing."
The Coalition wholeheartedly supports the Goldstone Report’s conclusions accusing Israel of war crimes – although the report was overwhelmingly condemned by many bodies, including, for instance, the U.S. House of Representatives. In a 344-36 landslide vote, the House describes the report as “irredeemably biased and unworthy of further consideration or legitimacy," and called upon President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to “continue to strongly and unequivocally oppose any endorsement of the [report] in multilateral fora.”
Antisemites manage to subvert any cause in their direction, and have taken over any lefty cause out there. I'm surprised Copenhagen confrence isn't focused on condemning and hating Israel and Jews too. (or am I just not digging enough, perhaps anti-capitalism and UN extortion isn't all that it seems to be)
