IDF Brig.-Gen says he traveled to UK on a false name

IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen Avi Benayahu on Monday said he traveled to the United Kingdom on a false name over fears of being arrested for alleged war crimes, in an interview with Defense News.
"In my last visit to London, I had to assume a false name because well-funded anti-Israel activists are exploiting universal jurisdiction powers to wage lawfare against us," Benayahu explained. "It's absurd, and I understand the government is trying to legislate changes to prevent this."
Benayahu said that, "The British and other European governments are just as concerned as we are about terror, and leaders are realizing that whoever feeds the snake of radical Islam will ultimately get bitten."
