Nowhere to hide

The times may be changing?

“General (res.) Doron Almog, former head of the Israel Defence Forces’ Southern Command, escaped arrest Sunday by the London police’s anti-terrorist and war crimes unit, when he remained on an aircraft that had landed in Heathrow airport and returned with it to Israel several hours later.

“Almog had arrived in London on an El-Al flight. Israel Ambassador Zvi Hefetz learned of a plan to arrest him for allegedly perpetrating war crimes during the intifada, and quickly informed Yaki Dayan, head of the political department in Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom’s bureau.”

People like Almog will soon learn that pursuing the “war on terror” comes at a very high price. Western leaders should not be immune from international prosecution. I can think of a few others to add to the current list.
