NGO Monitor: Livni Trip to Britain Represents Delegitimization
Had the UK not passed amendments to the “Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill 2010-11 Livni would have been arrested.
Jerusalem - Following the passage of amendments to the UK’s “Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill 2010-11,” which now requires the consent of the Director of Public Prosecutions before an arrest warrant is issued for a privately-instigated prosecution, opposition leader Tzipi Livni will arrive in Britain on Thursday, October 6 for meetings. “Tzipi Livni’s trip to Britain is a significant achievement against political advocacy NGOs that had hijacked the UK legal system for their own agenda,” says Anne Herzberg, legal advisor for NGO Monitor. “NGOs such as Palestinian Center for Human Rights, Yesh Gvul, Al Haq, and Al Mezan, and their British partners Daniel Machover, the Hickman & Rose Solicitors firm, and Irvine, Thanvi, Natas, and Imran Khan & Partners initiated highly politicized PR stunts in the form of meritless legal cases, all under the guise of ‘justice’ and ‘human rights.’” Lawfare, which attempts to label Israelis as ‘war criminals,’ is part of the broader Durban strategy, led by NGOs, to delegitimize and politically isolate Israel.Not surprisingly, George Soros funds some of these anti-Semitic groups
Daniel Machover (co-founder Lawyers for Palestinian Human Rights and head of civil litigation for Hickman & Rose Solicitors) – in concert with the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) and Yesh Gvul – submitted evidence files to the Anti-Terrorist and War Crimes Unit of the London Metropolitan police regarding former IDF Southern Command Chief Maj. Gen. (res.) Doron Almog. When police declined to act on the files, lawyers applied for an arrest warrant. Almog traveled to London, but did not leave the plane once he learned of the arrest warrant (Aug. 2005). An unsuccessful suit was filed in 2004 against Shaul Mofaz. PCHR is funded by the EU, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Ford Foundation, Open Society Institute, Oxfam NOVIB; Yesh Gvul’s funding is completely non-transparent.Good on the UK, this is a step in the right direction. Another step in the right directionthe UK could do is arrest members of the Muslims Against the Crusades for sedition and solicitation of murder. MAC stepped over the line with their press release: "Is the assassination of Obama legal"?
