If a British judge issues an arrest warrant against Zippi Livni, who was only the Foreign Minister during the alleged commission of war crimes in Gaza, it makes sense that Ehud Barak who was the Defense Minister and, in effect, direct overall commander of operation, also be investigated for war crimes. Britain will not issue now an arrest warrant against Barak because he enjoys diplomatic immunity being a government minister, but Livni is merely an MK at the present time and has no immunity. (Remember Pinochet, a senator during his arrest in England?) The basic problem in that Barak refuses to allow an independent Israeli investigation into alleged war crimes, and agrees only to an IDF investigation. Let the fox be guarding the chicken coop. So let Barak be cooped in Israel when he is no longer minister.
