In a Preemptive Move, Netanyahu Calls for ‘Sanctions’ against ICC

The Palestine Chronicle | January 21, 2020

Right-wing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for imposing sanctions on the International Criminal Court (ICC), following an earlier announcement by the court that it intends to investigate alleged war crimes in the occupied Palestinian territories.

“The US government under President Trump has spoken forcefully against the ICC for this travesty, and I urge all your viewers to do the same, to ask for concrete actions, sanctions, against the international court – its officials, its prosecutors, everyone,” Netanyahu said during an interview with Trinity Broadcasting Network.

Meanwhile, the ICC announced on Tuesday that it will delay its debate on the issue, which is intended to determine “whether it has the jurisdiction to probe alleged Israeli war crimes in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem due to a procedural error related to the filing’s page limit,” The Guardian newspaper reported.

Editor of The Palestine Chronicle, Palestinian journalist Ramzy Baroud commented that “the high level of the ICC investigations places the legal push against Israel at an entirely new level.”

“This is uncharted territory for Israel, the United States, Palestine, the ICC, and the international community as a whole. There is little doubt that some joint Israeli-American effort is already underway to develop strategies aimed at countering, if not altogether dismissing, the ICC investigation,” Baroud added.

  1. Well, since it’s all fake, we can all relax. I don’t know what Israel is shooting for but it ain’t happening. Hey, Israel, go fuck yourself. You and the United States should fail, immediately. You’re disgusting.

  2. Nuttyahoo said what? He has no power. Forget his carrot and stick. Sure he thinks his army is loyal to him. That’s so funny though since he’s nothing but a douche and everyone HATES him. The American government is also nothing but douches. I hate you all.

  5. Typical response from Netanyahu. If he can’t get away with crimes against the Palestinians, get his attack dog, the USA to apply sanctions. Both the USA signed the “Statute of Rome ” forming the International Criminal Court”, but BOTH Israel and the USA refused to join, obviously realizing that THEY would both be subject to International Law.

    There is NO Depth to which Netanyahu won’t sink, in his Lunacy. It’s a fair indication that they both want to be renegades from the ICC.
