T  
The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu – who bears direct responsibility for Israel’s war crimes in Gaza last summer – has been invited by the Government to visit Britain.

However, the man to blame for the deaths of more than 2,000 Palestinian women, children and men in the space of seven weeks, will face a hostile reception from hundreds of thousands of British people.
Last year, more than 150,000 people marched through the streets of London and other towns and cities across the UK in protest at Israel’s massacre in Gaza. Their integrity in standing up to Israel’s war crimes should be matched by our government.

A petition – calling for Netanyahu to be arrested for war crimes – has been already been signed by more than 72,000 people in just over two weeks.

News & Events
Mohammad Allan
 
After 64 days on hunger strike, the Israeli High Court’s suspended Mohammad Allan’s administrative detention.
Allan remains in a critical condition, and medical examinations indicate he suffers from brain damage due to a sharp drop of Vitamin B1 levels in his brain as a result of the hunger strike. Mohammad Allan, a lawyer, started his hunger strike in protest at being held under administrative detention, without charge or trial – a process in which Israel holds hundreds of Palestinian prisoners in violation of the Fourth Geneva convention.
The act of suspending his administrative detention leaves open the option for Israel to re-detain him if his medical condition improves.
Hamas and Tony Blair
Despite the media furore about proposed discussions with Hamas and Hezbollah, it has now been revealed that former Quartet representative, Tony Blair, has been meeting the Head of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal, for some time.
