British politicians are becoming increasingly concerned with the phenomenon of homegrown activists seeking to highlight alleged misconduct and war crimes by British soldiers during the Iraq war. There have been a few cases where activists have succeeded bringing British soldiers to trial.

A British Member of Parliament recently expressed sympathy for Israel, whose soldiers and officers are faced with similar challenges posed by foreign-funded NGOs like Breaking the Silence, which lectures international audiences about alleged Israeli army war crimes, and B’Tselem which seeks to document alleged human rights violations in Judea and Samaria.

Andrew Percy, a Conservative Member of Parliament in Britain told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that given the “vexatious and frivolous and ideologically-motivated legal challenges,” of those seeking undermine the the ethical conduct of soldiers, he sympathized with the Israeli government’s position on the matter.
