Tzipi Livni is the most recent Israeli official to deal with the fear of accountability for her military decisions. Despite claims to the contrary, she has canceled an upcoming visit to the UK, citing “scheduling conflicts”, while simultaneously issuing a statement that she was “proud of all the decisions she made as foreign minister during the Gaza war.”
She can be proud of whatever she wants, but her pride is not necessarily sanctioned by international law.
Having canceled a speaking event for the Jewish National Fund out of fear of arrest, its clear her pride is insufficiently strong to overwhelm her fear of accountability.
Update: She’s not the only one. Ditto for Moshe Ya’alon, deputy prime minister and minister for strategic affairs.
