Sudan: Netanyahu and Al-Bashir Should Have Their Day in Court by The Namibian

Please make a donation at our Indiegogo fundraising campaign.

Should the ICC indict the four-time Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for war crimes and genocide being committed in the occupied/colonised Palestine, it will make history… Unlike Al-Bashir, Netanyahu has not been directly charged but he has slammed the decision by the International Criminal Court to launch a preliminary investigation into possible war crimes in the Palestinian territories, calling such a move “absurd”. He says Palestinians do not have a state and can only get one through direct negotiations with Israel. “No state, no standing, and no case.” Quite a stupid argument to say the least. But thank God – the ICC has now admitted Palestine as a member.

Hypocrisy is not a four letter word by Tariq A. Al-Maeena

In its short history, the [International Criminal] Court has dealt with crimes of aggression primarily in some countries in Africa.  Despite repeated calls, it has continued to ignore calls for investigations into crimes committed by Israelis against Palestinians.  It has remained mysteriously silent about the massacres of the residents of Sabra and Shatila and the butchery of civilians in Jenin crafted by Ariel Sharon the Israeli premier at the time, followed by the public display of the genocide of the women and children of Gaza at the behest of the current Israeli premier, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Palestine and Israel: Abusive marriage? by Jules Rabin

The colossal disparity in those figures is suggestive of “abuse” on a scale so vast that it proclaims a wanton disregard by Israel of Palestinian lives in the mass: a virtual antechamber to genocide. And that’s a part of the case that the Palestine Authority aims to bring before the International Criminal Court, where it has just gained standing: the scale of the killing in Gaza and the scale of the destruction of Palestinian infrastructure, generally, with swaths of densely settled Gaza bombed to rubble as far as the eye can see, while the Israeli infrastructure was barely touched by the hopeless barrages of rockets flying in from Gaza.

The Irish Times: Internationalising the conflict

In withholding $127 million in Palestinian Authority (PA) customs revenues from the authority, as retaliation for its application to join the International Criminal Court(ICC), the Israeli government has once again dangerously escalated tensions… The Palestinians may also have difficulty in making the case that, however reprehensible, the Gaza killings rise to the ICC prosecution threshold for genocide or war crimes, of “unimaginable atrocities that deeply shock the conscience of humanity”. Are they a deliberate strategy or the byproducts of a misguided but “legitimate” war? These are legitimate questions and Israel should prepare to answer them instead of taking revenge on those who ask them.

Humanitarian Hypocrisy by Shad Saleem Faruqi

Many human rights agencies including the International Criminal Court (ICC), the UN Security Council, the Human Rights Council and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights are selective about their commemorations and condemnations. Mass murderers in the USA, Israel, UK and France appear absolutely immune from international sanctions. For example the ICC has ruled repeatedly that there is “insufficient evidence” for it to investigate Israel for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.

Israelis must pay for their war crimes By Tariq A. Al Maeena

In its short history, ICC has chased down events in relation to crimes of aggression primarily in some countries in Africa. However, despite repeated calls, it continues to ignore calls for investigations into crimes committed by the Israelis against Palestinians. It has remained mysteriously silent on the massacres of the residents of Sabra and Shatilla and the butchery of civilians in Jenin, crafted by Ariel Sharon, the then Israeli prime minister, followed by a public display of pre-designed genocide of women and children of Gaza at the behest of the current Israeli premier, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Saudi Gazette: Have we forgotten Israeli war crimes in Gaza?

In its short history, the ICC has investigated crimes of aggression primarily in some African countries.  Despite repeated calls, it has continued to ignore crimes committed by Israelis against Palestinians.  It has remained mysteriously silent about the massacres of residents of Sabra and Shatila, the butchery of civilians in Jenin crafted by Ariel Sharon the Israeli premier at the time and the public display of genocide of the women and children of Gaza at the behest of the current Israeli premier, Benjamin Netanyahu… The question then for the ICC is this:  When will it hold the Israelis accountable for such continued barbarity?
