Netanyahu Calls for Sanctions Against ICC

Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minster, has called for sanctions against the International Criminal Court, and urged support from other nations, particularly the United States. Netanyahu said, “I think that everybody should rise up against this. The US government, under President Trump, has spoken forcefully against the ICC for this travesty. 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 also said, “They are basically in a full frontal attack on democracies: both on democracies’ right to defend themselves, and on Israel’s right – the Jewish people’s right – to live in their ancestral homeland, the Land of Israel.” The ICC opened an investigation into alleged 2014 war crimes two weeks ago.
