Israeli fears of possible war-crimes prosecutions - more evidence

Paraphrased from this this Al Jazeera report.

Opening the winter session of the Israeli parliament on 12th October 2009, Binyamin Netanyahu denounced the UN Goldstone report saying: "The report encourages terrorism and threatens peace" and adding that he would "never allow any of the country's leaders or soldiers to be put on trial for war crimes."
Note: Never mind any prima facie evidence; In the Zionist/Orwellian view of the world, neither Israel, its leaders, nor any of its soldiers - by definition - can possibly be guilty of war crimes.

Netanyahu added:
"We will not agree to a situation whereby Ehud Olmert, Ehud Barak and Tizpi Livni, who sent soldiers of the Israeli Defence Forces to defend our values and citizens, are subject to charges at The Hague. We will not agree to a situation whereby army officers and soldiers will be condemned as war criminals"
Mere mention of 'The Hague' in this context breaks new ground. It clearly demonstrates that attempts at prosecutions are seen as likely. I agree. They ARE likely and rightly so; though for the usual weary litany of reasons, I am less sanguine about prospects for their success.

To the extent that international travel by potential defendants is inhibited and the paranoid warmongering apartheid nature of the Zionist Project forced on a congenitally reluctant MSM, they are still worth pursuing though
