Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and seven other former and current government officials are at risk of arrest if they set foot in Spain, after a Spanish judge effectively issued an arrest warrant for the group, it has been reported.
According to the Latin American Herald Tribune, Spanish national court judge Jose de la Mata ordered the police and civil guard to notify him if Mr Netanyahu and the six other individuals enter the country, as their actions could see a case against them regarding the Freedom Flotilla attack of 2010 reopened.
The other men named in the issue are former defence minister Ehud Barak, former foreign minister Avigdor Leiberman, former minister of strategic affairs Moshe Yaalon, former interior minister Eli Yishai, minister without portfolio Benny Begin and vice admiral maron Eliezer, who was in charge of the operation.
The case – which was put on hold by Judge de la Mata last year – was brought against the men following an attack by Israeli security forces against the Freedom Flotilla aid ships in 2010, which was trying to reach Gaza.
It concerns the Mavi Marmara ship, the main civilian vessel in a fleet of six that were attempting to break an Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip. The six ships were carrying around 500 passengers, humanitarian aid and construction materials. The Israeli Defence Force stormed the ship in a raid that left nine human rights activists dead. A tenth activist died later that month due to wounds sustained in the raid.
The Israeli Prime Minister and other officials now face charges in the case, should it be reopened.
An Israeli foreign ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nachshontold the Jerusalem Post: “We consider it to be a provocation. We are working with the Spanish authorities to get it cancelled. We hope it will be over soon.”

My thoughts exactly!
“What, these piss-ant Spaniards dare defy me!!!!” “Get those olive grove bullbozers out, we’re going to Spain!”, said an unrepentant, self-gratifying, egotistical, insanely delusional, and excessive masturbator, Benjamin NutJobYaHoo, lowest joo-scum and current Anti-Christ. “Let’s crush those olive branches.”
“… Spanish national court judge Jose de la Mata ordered the police and civil guard to notify him if Mr Netanyahu and the six other individuals enter the country,…”
Funny, that doesn’t sound like any arrest warrant that I’ve ever heard of.
“The Israeli Prime Minister and other officials now face charges in the case, should it be reopened.”
Wouldn’t want to be accused of anti-Semitism or anything, right?
“It is my decision whether to reopen the case and I have decided there is………ugh!, choke, blood-curdling scream, “We interrupt this broadcast to inform you today’s weather will shift between “partly sunny” to “partly cloudy” for most of the day.” “The press conference you have been watching has been postponed.”
