On February 8, Infinitum News wrote that the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague had decided on 5 February that they have jurisdiction to investigate Israelis and Palestinians for alleged war crimes that have taken place in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) , Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu already criticized the decision and called the ICC for a political tribunal, read MIFF’s article here.

– Today, ICC proved that they are a political body and not a legal institution. The ICC ignores real war crimes and is rather pursuing the state of Israel, a rule of law with a strong democratic government who is not a member of the ICC, says Netanyahu, who believes the decision is a victory for Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups and added:

-ICC ignores the right of democracy to defend itself against terror.

Three judges assessed whether the ICC has jurisdiction in the field, something like Israel and many other countries have argued that they do not have – read more here. It was not a unanimous decision. Judge Péter Kovács disagreed with the other two judges:

“I do not find that the majority approaches or have arrived with an appropriate argument in their answer to the questions presented for the Salen, and in my opinion, they have no legal basis under the Roma Articles of Association, and even less in accordance with The international law “writes Kovács in what cannot be interpreted as other than an extremely strong disagreement.

Meanwhile, Israel has considered whether they will cooperate with the ICC.

– Whereas IDF soldiers fight with the highest morality against terrorists as daily commits war crimes, the Court of The Hague has decided to condemn Israel. There is no other word for it than hypocrisy. A body created to fight for human rights has become a hostile body that defends them as a trample on human rights, Netanyahu said.
