Britain seeks arrest of Israeli general for ‘war crimes’

Tuesday, September 13, 2005 | 
Israeli reserve general Doron Almog narrowly escaped arrest in Britain for alleged war crimes! When Almog arrived in London on a private visit, Israeli military attaches warned him not to get off the plane because detectives were waiting to arrest him. The arrest warrant alleged that in 2002, Almog ordered the destruction of 59 Palestinian homes in Rafah, a terrorist stronghold in Gaza known for weapons smuggling from Egypt. The warrant was issued at the request of a pro-Palestinian Moslem group. Almog stayed on the plane and returned to Israel. “Look at the paradox,” Almog said. “On 9/11, I land in London and they try to arrest me, the same person who fought terror more than anyone.”
