FU UK: Thousands Sign Petition Calling to Arrest Netanyahu in London
Nearly 35,000 sign online petition calling for the arrest of Israeli PM during visit to London. British Embassy: It won’t happen.
A petition calling for the arrest of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during an upcoming visit to London has garnered more than 34,000 signatures, but the British Embassy in Israel said on Tuesday there is no chance that will happen.
The petition, which appears on the website of the British Parliament, notes that Netanyahu is due to visit London in September and adds, “Under international law he should be arrested for war crimes upon arrival in the U.K for the massacre of over 2000 civilians in 2014”.
As of Tuesday evening, the petition was signed by 34,966 people out of the 100,000 its organizers are hoping to achieve.
Under British law, the government must respond to all petitions that get more than 10,000 signatures. At 100,000 signatures, the petition could be be considered for debate in Parliament.
