International Criminal Court Wants to Prosecute War Criminals (good luck with that)

The International Criminal Court (ICC) announced applications for arrest warrants for leaders of Israel and Hamas for the ongoing war in Gaza. The media is fixated on arrest warrants for Israel and ignoring the fact that Hamas is also on the line to answer for their crimes. What is at stake is not global leaders’ reputations but civilian lives.

The ICC has applied for warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant. The Prime Minister condemned this on Twitter with this angry response ringing the antisemitism dog whistle. Israel is not a member of the ICC, like the United States, and has long refused participation with the court due to its ongoing warring ways.

U.S. State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said that the ICC doesn’t have jurisdiction over Israel and if Palestinian authorities want to settle this, they should go to the Israeli courts. LOL.

The ICC applied for warrants for the following Hamas leaders: Yahya Sinwar, Mohammed Diab Ibrahim Al-Masri and Ismail Haniyeh, declaring that these men “are criminally responsible for the killing of hundreds of Israeli civilians in attacks perpetrated by Hamas (in particular its military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades) and other armed groups on 7 October 2023 and the taking of at least 245 hostages.”
