ICC vs Israel: Fallout of a War Crimes Investigation
Date and time: Sunday, October 18, 2020, 7 pm Israel Daylight Time (UTC+3)
Critical questions and concerns emerge as the International Criminal Court at The Hague nears its final decision on whether to launch a criminal investigation into Israel for alleged war crimes violations.
The ICC supposedly exists to provide a forum in which nations and individuals can bring the world’s worst human rights violators to justice. Unfortunately, the court has not lived up to this high purpose.
Almost as soon as the ICC opened its doors in 2003, enemies of Israel and the United States have used the court as a politicized weapon to resolve disputes through prosecution while harassing political and military leaders.
The court’s chief prosecutor has opened investigations targeting Israel and the United States, even though both countries are not ICC members and boast their own independent and competent judicial systems.
Why is the ICC so preoccupied with Israel?
Does the court pose a real threat to the Jewish state and its leadership?
What are the implications of a criminal investigation into Israel for other democracies?
How should Israel and the US respond to the prospect of foreign nations arresting their citizens and extraditing them to the ICC for trial?
