  4. Is it any wonder, that both Israel, and the ‘mighty’ USA are the only two countries not to sign up for the International Criminal Court?

    But, Why were both countries granted “Observer Status” at the ICC? (as Israel also enjoys at the UN, but is NOT bound by the UN’s decision making?

    If you want to know WHO the real villains are in this world, just look at which countries who abstained from joining the ICC.
