Eric Pickles calls justice for war criminal Netanyahu ‘completely absurd’

Eric Pickles has called the quest for justice ‘completely absurd’ as UK citizens demands that war criminal Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be arrested.


A petition signed by 80,000 people calling for the arrest of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he visits Britain in September has been branded “completely absurd” by Conservative MP Eric Pickles.

I welcome the government’s unambiguous response which reiterates its support for Israel’s right to self-defense and condemnation of Hamas’s terrorist tactics,” Pickles told the Telegraph newspaper.

The petition will have no impact upon the UK-Israel relationship which is stronger than ever and Prime Minister Netanyahu’s forthcoming visit will enhance it further.
