On the 30th of January 2009 the high court in Spain decided to open a war-crimes investigation into a former Israeli defence minister and six of his military officials. And You won’t believe who that former Israeli defence minister : Our old friend Ben-Eliezer !!!
The war crime of Eliezer this time goes back to 2002 when Israel bombed a building in the Gaza Strip killing 14 civilians and a Hamas comander Salah Shehade . Among the victims were Nine Children
If found convicted Ben-Eliezer will be wanted across the EU.
Of course Israel attacked this decision and Livni came and said the Spanish FM called her and told her not be worry because Spain decided to correctÂ that mistake regarding the jurisdictions !!??
Livni described this as an abuse of Spanish judicial system , I won’t be surprised because she herself is a war crime.
ItÂ is worth to mention Eliezer killed Arab POWs in 1967 in what is better known as the Shaked affair.
Historically this is not the first war crimes case against Israel in Europe , I remember that famous Palestinian lawyer in UK Michel Massih tried to push similiar case in the British courts , I think he managed with one of the IDF generals who canÂ´t put his foot in the British soil now.
