The Hunt for Dan Halutz at Harvard

In what has to be the most incendiary press release we’ve received today at the office, Harvard-based group the Alliance for Justice in the Middle East announced that “activists and community members will converge today at Harvard Business School (HBS) in search of notorious war criminal Dan Halutz, last spotted there attending an executive management course.” Halutz, Israel's former defense chief, resigned earlier this year under pressure for his military’s failures in the 2006 war in Lebanon and has since enrolled at Harvard Business School. The Alliance takes issue specifically with what they see as his “policy of indiscriminate bombing that entailed widespread war crimes” during the war. Despite such language, Halutz is not, of course, actually being sought for prosecution as a war criminal. Spokesperson for AJME, Darryl Li, said via email that “our action was not aimed at confronting Halutz directly but rather in alerting the community that there was a war criminal in their midst.” But, the question that springs from all of this is: what will happen if these activists do indeed come across their man?
