Israeli former Minister Cancels Belgium Visit fearing Arrest for Gaza War Crimes

IMEMC News | – –

Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni has reportedly cancelled her trip to Belgium, according to the PNN, over threats of arrest for war crimes in Gaza.


On 23 June, 2010, a group of victims filed a complaint in Belgium, with the Federal Prosecutor, against a number of Israeli military officials, including Livni, for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in the Gaza Strip.

In the 2008-2009 war on Gaza, 1,500 Palestinians were killed.

Livni served as Minister of Foreign Affairs between 2006 – 2009, under former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, and was due to arrive in the Belgian capital on Monday to unofficially attend a conference on anti-Semitism in Europe.

  1. It probably would have been interesting if she had gone there anyway, got arrested, and a trial were held.

    Ah, but facing the music is not exactly the style of powerful people, certainly including the pernicious string-pullers in Israel.

  2. Remember dear Obama refusing to say one word of condemnation from the Israeli killing of 6 Palestinians which broke the truce with Gaza on his Election Day, to the whole massacre and its end when he was inaugurated.
    Just the start of Obama’s “cool” terms as POTUS.
