    "There is an extradition treaty between the UK and Dubai. Which is the treaty that would apply. And obviously in his current job Netanyahu cannot travel incognito" Sigh, reading your posts is like waiting for the proverbial monkey to eventually write Hamlet. Eventually you're bound to get SOMETHING right. Where to begin? How about your howler about the "treaty" with Dubai? Dubai is not a state and no such treaty exists. There is one with the UAE, but it is discretionary -- largely because of serious doubts expressed at the time as to whether there was an "independent judiciary" in the UAE. Which brings me back to the point about how that discretion is likely to be exercised ... Finally, in the highly unlikely event the law even matters to you, even assuming that Bibi steps down, his immunity for these sorts of acts would continue rationae materiae (even though his immunity rationae temporis for non-official acts would disappear). Guess your fellow analysts at the pub missed that.
