Ex-foreign minister Livni who cancel plans to visit the UK in December last year, fearing arrests for the part she played in the war crimes against the people of Gaza, has now changed her mind and says she will indeed visit the UK specifically to test the arrest warrant process - in order that Israeli 'are able to travel freely'. The Israeli government has put a ban on current members traveling abroad for fear of arrest.
But of course Israelis can and do travel freely - it's the criminals that should not be allowed to without facing a court of justice for their crimes.
Britain is braced for a diplomatic row after a senior Israeli politician warned that she was preparing to travel to the UK, where she faces an arrest warrant for alleged war crimes.
Tzipi Livni, the former Israeli Foreign Minister and now the leader of the Opposition, said that she wanted to test promises by David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, that he would change the law to ensure that she was not arrested for her role in last year’s Gaza offensive.
