55-year-old Argaman, currently deputy Shin Bet chief, to replace Yoram Cohen in May 2016.22:00 11.02.16 | 0 comments
The law is there to catch war criminals. Milliband seems to be attemtping to make decisions to prosecute war criminals into political decisions - as in we'll only prosecute war criminals the government doesn't like, while war criminals the government does like will be OK. If they can do that without changing the law, they might just get away with it. If they have to change the law to do so, and I suspect they would, I doubt it will happen. I can't really see Milliband and Brown standing up and trying to explain to a sceptical House of Commons that the government should be trusted on deciding who's a war criminal instead of judges. For some reason, Milliband and Brown have decided to suck up to Israel. I'm not sure why, whether it's for pro-Israel labour donors, or because they're afraid of prosecutio themselves, or because they think they need to keep Israel sweet to maintain UK influence in peace negotiations. Suspected Israeli war criminals will probably still be arrested.
