Egypt threatens to arrest Netanyahu....

And this is from a country at peace with Israel....
Egypt's prosecutor general has reportedly opened an investigation into complaints filled by activists and MPs, calling for the arrest of Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak upon entering Egypt.

According to Egypt's Daily Star, the complaint, submitted on 3 June, accuses Israeli officials of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity during the Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla, which left nine Turkish nationals, including a dual US citizen, dead.

Citing international laws and conventions on the protection of civilians, including the statute of the International Criminal Court, which allows countries to arrest war criminals and subsequent trials in international courts, the complaint was filed by 51 activists and members of parliament.

Petitioners include civil rights activists Ibrahim Yousri, Abdel-Halim Qandil, coordinator of the Kefaya movement for change, Hamdi Qandil, journalist and spokesman for the National Association for Change, and opposition and independent MPs Saad Aboud, Gamal Zahran and Hamdin Sabbahi, will be heard by Prosecutor General Abdel Meguid Mahmoud on Saturday, Qandil said.

Qandil told the Egyptian newspaper that "the decision is a surprise and I don't have any explanation for it," while Yousri, who filed the complaint, said the decision was a "positive step" and told Daily News Egypt "the decision isn't something new for the Prosecutor General."

“He [Prosecutor General] is a man who does his job with integrity and objectivity and implements the law."

The UK was all set to arrest livni tzipi last year over her role in the Gaza attack. Amazing how what they seem to think is okay is frowned upon in other countries isn't it.

Hanz, if you remember, the arrest warrant was issued by a dopey judge who didn't have the authority to do so, at the request of a barmy far-left hate organization.

Even Labour said it should never have happened and will never happen again.

These facts must have slipped your mind, right?

Nope, didn't slip my mind at all. An arrest warrant was granted regardless of who issued it.
