A London court last year issued a warrant for the arrest of opposition leader Tzipi Livni over her role in Israel's war in Gaza, launched at the end of 2008 when Livni was the foreign minister.
Livni reportedly cancelled a trip to the U.K. in December for fear of being arrested after the warrant was filed against her following an application by Palestinian activists.
If in doubt, keep them out. If you're fools change the rules.
