Five-part series, “Israel Attacks the International Criminal Court, but Its Arguments Fall Flat.”Written by Vermonter James Marc Leas, in TruthoutThis series of articles was written in response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s assertion that three International Criminal Court provisions could preclude Israeli nationals from being investigated or prosecuted by the ICC. The five articles present the facts and the law regarding each of those provisions. They argue that a fair prosecutor should find that ICC provisions would not exclude ICC investigation and prosecution of Israeli nationals (political and military leaders) who allegedly committed war crimes in occupied Palestinian territories.The Israeli government campaign was explained by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in a statement he read out from his office on January 17, 2015. He argued that (1) Palestine is not a state; (2) the Israeli legal system upholds the highest standards of international law; and (3) Israel was acting in self-defense against terrorism.1st Installment: Pounding the Table, Israeli Officials Malign International Criminal Court
