Wackjob International Criminal Court Seeks Arrest Warrant For Netanyahu

It’s utterly insane that the ICC would equate Netanyahu with the leader of Hamas, which is designated a terrorist organization by the U.S., U.N., and E.U.

ICC requests arrest warrants for Netanyahu, Hamas leaders over ‘war crimes’

An International Criminal Court prosecutor announced Monday that he has filed applications for arrest warrants against Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Hamas leaders for allegedly committing “war crimes” during the conflict in Gaza.

Prosecutor Karim Khan said in a statement that based on evidence collected and examined by his office, he has “reasonable grounds” to believe Netanyahu and Gallant “bear criminal responsibility for… war crimes and crimes against humanity committed on the territory of the State of Palestine.”

He said those alleged crimes include “starvation of civilians as a method of warfare” and “intentionally directing attacks against a civilian population.”

Khan also said he is seeking arrest warrants for Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, its top political leader Ismail Haniyeh and its military commander Mohammed Dief.

The Hamas terrorists were pretty much included as an afterthought. Not like the ICC is actually going to try to get them

Israeli war cabinet member and opposition leader Benny Gantz blasted the ICC’s announcement Monday, saying “the prosecutor’s position to apply for arrest warrants is in itself a crime of historic proportion to be remembered for generations.”

“While Israel fights with one of the strictest moral codes in history, while complying with international law and boasting a robust independent judiciary – drawing parallels between the leaders of a democratic country determined to defend itself from despicable terror to leaders of a blood-thirsty terror organization is a deep distortion of justice and blatant moral bankruptcy,” he added.

Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz said the move is a “historic disgrace that will be remembered forever,” The Associated Press reports.

Neither the IS or Israel are part of the ICC, though, Palestinians are, despite really having no nation. Why? To blame Israel

(Politico) “I will feverishly work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle in both chambers to levy damning sanctions against the ICC,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said shortly after the news became public.

In a statement, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said that “Khan’s kangaroo court has no jurisdiction in Israel to pursue these anti-Semitic and politically motivated ‘charges,’” adding that he looks “forward to making sure neither Khan, his associates nor their families will ever set foot again in the United States.”

The outrage was not isolated to Republicans. Democrats representing large Jewish American communities also slammed the decision. In a post on X, Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-N.Y.) slammed the warrants as “not justice but rather retribution against Israel for the original sin of existing as a Jewish State and the subsequent sin of defending itself amid the deadliest day for Jews since the Holocaust.”


Progressives, however, celebrated the decision. “If Netanyahu comes to address Congress, I would be more than glad to show the ICC the way to the House floor to issue that warrant. Ditto for Hamas leader,” Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), a past head of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, posted on X. A handful of progressive Democrats have previously indicated support for an arrest warrant.

Well, of course they’re saying this, but, not saying a damned thing about the Hamas leaders. I wonder why?

Secretary of State Antony Blinken came out against the warrant requests Monday afternoon: “We reject the prosecutor’s equivalence of Israel with Hamas. It is shameful,” he said in a statement. “This decision does nothing to help, and could jeopardize, ongoing efforts to reach a cease-fire agreement that would get hostages out and surge humanitarian assistance in.”

In a statement, President Joe Biden called the announcement “outrageous” and stated that “We will always stand with Israel against threats to its security.”

Good on Blinken and Biden. But, how long does that last when the unhinged, Jew hating base bleats at Biden?

    The ICC Prosecutor humiliates William Teach without even trying. In fact, the arrest warrants originally documented were those against the assholes in Hamas! Hardly an afterthought. We fully understand that ultra-far-right MAGAts prefer not to read but here ya go, sparky:


    Yahya Sinwar, Mohammed Diab Ibrahim Al-Masri (Deif), Ismail Haniyeh

    On the basis of evidence collected and examined by my Office, I have reasonable grounds to believe that Yahya SINWAR (Head of the Islamic Resistance Movement (“Hamas”) in the Gaza Strip), Mohammed Diab Ibrahim AL-MASRI, more commonly known as DEIF (Commander-in-Chief of the military wing of Hamas, known as the Al-Qassam Brigades), and Ismail HANIYEH (Head of Hamas Political Bureau) bear criminal responsibility for the following war crimes and crimes against humanity committed on the territory of Israel and the State of Palestine (in the Gaza strip) from at least 7 October 2023:

    Extermination as a crime against humanity, contrary to article 7(1)(b) of the Rome Statute;
    Murder as a crime against humanity, contrary to article 7(1)(a), and as a war crime, contrary to article 8(2)(c)(i);
    Taking hostages as a war crime, contrary to article 8(2)(c)(iii);
    Rape and other acts of sexual violence as crimes against humanity, contrary to article 7(1)(g), and also as war crimes pursuant to article 8(2)(e)(vi) in the context of captivity;
    Torture as a crime against humanity, contrary to article 7(1)(f), and also as a war crime, contrary to article 8(2)(c)(i), in the context of captivity;
    Other inhumane acts as a crime against humanity, contrary to article 7(l)(k), in the context of captivity;
    Cruel treatment as a war crime contrary to article 8(2)(c)(i), in the context of captivity; and
    Outrages upon personal dignity as a war crime, contrary to article 8(2)(c)(ii), in the context of captivity.

    Prosecutor Khan continues on with accusations against the Hamas leaders…

    Regarding Gallant and Netanyahu:

    Starvation of civilians as a method of warfare as a war crime contrary to article 8(2)(b)(xxv) of the Statute;
    Wilfully causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or health contrary to article 8(2)(a)(iii), or cruel treatment as a war crime contrary to article 8(2)(c)(i);
    Wilful killing contrary to article 8(2)(a)(i), or Murder as a war crime contrary to article 8(2)(c)(i);
    Intentionally directing attacks against a civilian population as a war crime contrary to articles 8(2)(b)(i), or 8(2)(e)(i);
    Extermination and/or murder contrary to articles 7(1)(b) and 7(1)(a), including in the context of deaths caused by starvation, as a crime against humanity;
    Persecution as a crime against humanity contrary to article 7(1)(h);
    Other inhumane acts as crimes against humanity contrary to article 7(1)(k).

    Read the entire document (warming, it is long and has some big words). Both Wacky William and FOX Noise are propagrandizing you.

    Wacky William responds: but, not saying a damned thing about the Hamas leaders

    Blinded by the hate…

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Neither the United States nor Israel recognize the ICC. Palestine became a member of the ICC in 2015.

    • Brother John says:

      Neither the US nor Israel should recognize the ICC, just as they should refuse to recognize the UN.

      Palestine isn’t a real country.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Neither was Israel before 1948. The recognized Palestinian territories are Gaza and the West Bank, both overseen by Israel.

        Israeli settlers are illegally moving into the West Bank, often protected by Israeli soldiers.

        Have you heard of the potential two-state solution? You should look it up.

        What all have to realize that Israel is not going anywhere. The anti-Zionist, destroy Israel crowd needs to accept that reality. The Palestinian-haters need to accept that the Palestinians need a homeland.

        • Dana says:

          Israel existed 3,000 years ago!

          Have you heard of the potential two-state solution? You should look it up.

          And Prime Minister Ehud Barak signed on to a negotiated proposal, in late 2000, but Yassir Arafat tore it up, his ostensible reason being that it did not include the so-called ‘right of return,’ but, in reality, because he knew he would be killed by the Palestinian irredentists.

          Hamas explicitly reject the two-state solution.

          The Palestinian-haters need to accept that the Palestinians need a homeland.

          They have one. It is called Jordan.

          • Professor Hale says:

            Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005. Hamas has had uncontested control in that area since then. What do they have to show for it? They could have built a state. They could have disbanded the “Camps” and established permanent neighborhoods. Instead they built tunnels, stockpiled arms and trained a military force that specialized in extortion and oppressing their fellow citizens. Hamas doesn’t want a 2 state solution. Why should Israel give them one? When Gaza was run by Israel, the Israelis invested in infrastructure, built industry, agriculture and commerce. Hamas crushed all of that and sold the bones for scrap metal. “2 state solution” is the proposal that comes from people who do not have skin in that game.

            Of course, If the inept Biden administration, that is really run by unelected and unknown people from the shadows, had not lifted sanctions from Iran, then Hamas would not have had their attacks fully funded and approved by Iranian leaders.

  4. Professor Hale says:

    ICC, like other Euro-trash institutions (EU, NATO, UN, various high commissions) are all run by leftists. Leftists in the ICC hate Netanyahu as much as the leftists in his own country do and as much as leftists here in America hate Trump. Leftists in Israel are still trying to arrest Netanyahu and put him in prison for various things. Global Leftists all read from the same book because they all want the same thing: A world run by people like themselves. Imprisoning political opponents to keep them out of power is just another page leftists turn to when elections let them down.

    • h says:

      The last casualty count I read of Hamas was 7000, out of 30000 fighters, out of a Gaza poplalation of 2 million ( more densely packed than Manhattan)
      Bibi has already asked the Palestinian for help, first by taking over the Rafah crossing. The PA has refused.
      Dana how exactly do you see Israel “winning”?
      By killing Sinwar?
      By destroying Hamas? Is that even possible? at this point it looks like only 25% of Hamas fighters have been killed.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Do you believe the US should leave all these international orgs? UN, NATO, International Court of Justice, all our treaties etc.

      • Brother John says:

        The UN, NATO, the ICC, the WHO, absolutely, without hesitation. The loyalty of anyone thinking otherwise should immediately be suspect. All of their properties on US soil should be razed, plowed under, and the ground sown with salt.

        The rest we can decide on a case-by-case basis, but the odds aren’t good.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Haha! That’s a good one.

          It’s time for the United States of America to close its borders; stop all incoming international flights; expel ALL non-citizens; close the ports to incoming shipments; keep ALL our gas and oil; reopen our coal mines; recall all our troops; stop all foreign investments; stop all exports; use OUR Iron Dome defenses over all of America!; stop ALL foreign entanglements (UN, WHO, NATO; extradition treaties, etc); Internally – to Make America Great Again we MUST assess the loyalty of all “Americans” by their writings, words, downloads, views, protests, associations, voting history; we MUST halve the federal code every year until Americans are truly free…

          In about 10 years of internal rebuilding the US can slowly start to re-engage with the world.

  5. Dana says:

    The only war crime is the losing of it. Israel will win, really has already won, and no one can arrest the winners.

    Yahya Sinwar will never be tried for war crimes, because he will either be killed as Israel attempts to capture him, or, if captured, he will be tried in Israel. While Israel doesn’t have the death penalty for ‘ordinary crimes,’ it does for crimes against humanity, and Mr Sinwar will be hanged.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Mr Dana typed: Israel will win, really has already won

      Then why are they continuing to kill babies, children, women and men? Vengeance? Retribution? Sending a message to other enemies? Cruelty?

      • CarolAnn says:

        I love it when you take stupid stuff literally and think you’ve proved the point. Are you really that ignorant? Do you really believe that in a literal sense Israel has already won? Of course you don’t so why do you type stupid stuff about killing babies and children and women? Because you think it makes you a peacekeeper of some sort I guess. It doesn’t, it makes you look foolish and naïve.

        Now that Zelensky has stayed beyond his term and is now a Nazi usurper and a tyrant all those women and children he kills he kills for nothing except sheer power. Ohh and they get the Democrat party their money. And genocide Joe is 10%.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Hi CarolAnn,

          Hope all is well with you and yours. Perhaps I AM naive to take Mr Dana’s proclamations literally. I’ll try to divine what he means from now on. In general, I respect Mr Dana’s knowledge and reasoning, but I detect recently a turn in him toward more knee-jerk reactions.

          Do you really believe that now is good time for Ukraine to hold an election? They are fighting for their lives against Russia.

          We understand that Trump followers believe Ukraine should execute President Zelenskyy, give up and give Ukraine to Russia.

          Can you guide us to the evidence that the Democrats and Biden are receiving money from the Russian invasion of Ukraine?

          BTW, against whom is President Biden committing genocide? No disrepeck (h/t Ali G), but do you even know what genocide means?

      • Dana says:

        Then why did the Allies continue to bomb and assault Germany after January of 1945, when they had already clearly won?

        The elder President Bush made a huge mistake, stopping the first Persian Gulf War after 100 hours, after Iraqi forces had been expelled from Kuwait, after the war was already won, because his advisers and he thought that Saddam Hussein would surely fall after the humiliating defeat. Just as Adolf Hitler and his henchmen had to be removed from power, so do the entire leadership and most of the ‘soldiers’ of Hamas need to be removed.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Mr Dana,

          YOU, not I, claimed that Israel had already won. So now there i more that Israel has to do to REALLY win?

          How many more of the babies, children, women and men in Rafah must die to REALLY win? 20%? 50%?, 100%?

          And what about the Palestinians in the West Bank?

          The “war” won’t be won until Israel can live with minimal threats. That millions of Palestinians have a homeland and self determination. That the concept of destroying Israel percolating through reactionary Islam is no longer.

          The Saudis, once the most dangerous Islamic fundamentalist kingdom, is now less reactionary with NO government opposition to Israel. How? They kicked the reactionary fundamentalist Wahhabis out of power, the separation of mosque and state! Religious fundamentalism is a global problem being anti-reason, anti-science, anti-progress, anti-freedom, anti-democracy.

  6. MrLiberty says:

    The only crazy thing is that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Bill and Hillary, Obama, Biden, Trump, and thousands of others have NOT ALSO BEEN charged with war crimes or crimes against humanity.

  8. Professor Hale says:

    In other news, Zelensky is now officially a usurper and insurrectionist. He has no official or legal authority to remain in office. His elected term ended yesterday and he previously cancelled elections to chose his replacement. Will Western powers stop taking his calls now that there is no fig leaf of “democratically elected leader” next to his name? Will the ICC demand his immediate removal? He should step down immediately and call for elections, but he won’t. Western corrupt leaders could not tolerate anyone running Ukraine who might halt the gravy train. Trump tried and the corrupt people in our own congress impeached him for it. It seems, corrupt people really don’t like it when someone wants them to stop. Nor would Western “leaders” tolerate a Ukrainian patriot calling for an end to the slaughter of Ukrainian men in a pointless war. Since Zelensky is a puppet of the West, it is not just he who is illegitimately holding onto power. The hand inside the puppet is also illegitimate. Just like the hand that is stuck up Biden’s shirt making his lips move.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Right-wingers mouth the Kremlin line on President Zelenskyy, forgetting or ignoring the imposition of martial law, a result of Russia’s invasion.

      Russia’s Putin has a direct line to Trump who tells his devotees what to believe and say.

      If Trump, his MAGAt brigade and Putin want elections in Ukraine, they should have Russia stop the bombings and go home.

      Ukraine-hating Americans emerged from the ashes of Trump’s doomed campaign where he begged and cajoled Mr Zelenskyy to find political “dirt” on now President Biden. Zelenskyy didn’t, Trump lost, Putin invaded… Trump and his True Believers (TB) now hate the Jewish Zelenskyy, calling him a Nazi faggot and a corruptocrat stealing BILLIONS of US dollars!!

      Is their a reason Republicans want Russia to conquer Ukraine? Duh, Trump the Great demands tongue-baths from his Worshippers.

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        We in the MAGAt brigade truly love when you start talking crazy like that. You usually sound unhinged but when you talk like this you go from unhinged to tingly psychopathic.

        You have a dog in every fight and a position on every argument and you’re always wrong. Especially on something as stupid as this. A, Republicans don’t want Russia to conquer the Ukraine B, couldn’t care less, and C trump doesn’t care one way or the other frankly and neither do we. Only you pro Nazi genocidal Ukrainian lovers seem to care.

        Trump and his True Believers (TB) now hate the Jewish Zelenskyyyyy, calling him a Nazi faggot and a corruptocrat stealing BILLIONS of US dollars!!

        First of all we don’t hate Zelenskyyyyy for being Jewish or a faggot. We hate him because he is stealing our national treasure and as a corruptocrat is stealing the money that we’re sending to his country for himself and his fellow autocrats. The United States of America has no dog in this fight even though you do. We were friendly with both the Ukraine and Russia under Trump. End of the genocidal maniac in the White House hadn’t changed the paradigm we still would be and there probably would be no war in Europe. Of course you left us live for war all you have to do is look back at the history of the last century to see that Nazis, communists, socialists everybody at war all the time all you leftists. Can the worst of all are you American democommies. Americans that hate America and don’t want us to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      You may not have noticed but Russia invaded Ukraine with the intent of destroying it. If that doesn’t justify ‘martial law’ what the fuck does??

  10. h says:

    Prof Hale, Trump says he will be a dictator on day 1. Do you have a problem with that? I do

    MAGA seems to now hate our traditional Euro democracy allies. They are more aligned with Russia China North Korea the Saudis. They like strong autocratic dictators with strong CONSERVATIVE social views. No trannyism or that LGBTQ stuff in those countries. Re-education camps and conversion camps for all who have wrong think.
    MAGA now champions Neville Chamberlain “peace in our time” over Churchill in regards to Ukraine. Republicans USED to be strong on defense, wtf happened?

    Prof Hale must live in bizzaro land when he thinks that there can be fair elections held in the middle of an invasion. In the last election Zelensky got over 80% of the vote.

    If Israel is your Gold Standard of morality, remember that Israel supports Ukraine and has sent them advanced radars, and prior to Oct also allowed “Israeli “volunteers” to fight there.
    Judge a man or country by who their friends are

            So yeah, fuck off, you delicate little flower.

  11. Elwood P. Dowd says:


    Why do you believe everything that Trumputin tells you? So you take Putin’s word that President Zelenskyy is protecting the Nazis. That’s stupid.

    And we know how the far-right feels about Jews. But we’re not sure why you call him a faggot other than it’s the mindless general slur used by far-rightists. It would be hard to make the case that President Zelenskyy is a coward. Most men who call others faggots are bothered by their own feelings that they dare not admit.

    Do you have ANY evidence that Mr Zelenskyy is stealing money for America? Please tell us.

    The West does indeed have a dog in the fight. Russia invaded a nascent Democracy neighbor because Putin wants to rebuild the Russian empire. Russia is an autocracy with ample natural resources. He thought Ukraine would roll over and the whole thing would be over in a week – it’s been 3 friggin’ years. Our closest allies in Europe want to squelch Putin’s expansionary greed. If the West gives him Ukraine, he’s likely to start nibbling at the Baltics, even though they are NATO members (until the next President Trump leaves NATO).

    Do you agree with Mr Trump that the US should leave NATO?

    Can you re-interpret what you meant here?

    End of the genocidal maniac in the White House hadn’t changed the paradigm we still would be and there probably would be no war in Europe. Of course you left us live for war all you have to do is look back at the history of the last century to see that Nazis, communists, socialists everybody at war all the time all you leftists. Can the worst of all are you American democommies.


  12. Professor Hale says:

    In other news, it is amazing that the same people who claim Trump is a threat to democracy are just fine with how their elected president, Joe Biden, has been usurped and replaced by an unknown number of unelected people who rule America from the shadows. It is clear even to Democrats that Joe Biden is not running things. Democrats only care about “Democracy” if the outcomes agree with their agenda. Otherwise, shadow government dictatorships are OK with them. Democrats want to select Biden again because, as puppets go, he is relatively harmless. Harris is cut from the same cloth. High on ambition, low on ability, high on loyalty to the shadow government.

  13. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    I don’t think it’s possible for any non democommie to get a fair trial in America any longer. If it wasn’t proved during the kangaroo courts of the J6 committee what they’re doing to Trump proves it beyond any shadow of a doubt. Of course I get that beats the old days they would just roll into your homestead and kill everybody and burn it down like they did at Waco, or shoot your family to death like they did at the Ruby Ridge. They’ve settled down I guess. Now instead of killing you they just incarcerate you. Indefinitely. Or entangle you in lawfare to the point where you’re bankrupt. What a lovely judicial system the democommies have created for America.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      We agree with Mr Brandon. America is lost. Our elections are all fraudulent with “they/them” deciding all outcomes. Our judicial system is rigged where “they” allow thugs to roam free, but “they” put patriots in prison indefinitely. “They” put the successful on trial tying up their time and resources. “They” control everything now – what to read, what to view, what to say, what to think, what to eat, what to drink, what to drive, where to piss and shit, who you can associate with…

      And who are “they and them” (TNT)? It’s a mysterious, nefarious group of super-wealthy, communist-leaning, international manipulators, mostly European, most of whom we’ve never heard of, but includes some input from George Soros, the Rockefellers, Russian oligarchs, RAND, The Pope, Dalai Lama, Taylor Swift, Chomsky, Gates, Xi…

      The output (efferent) arms of this octopus are the mid-level “lifers” we find (at least in the US govt) at the Federal Reserve, DOJ, FDA, EPA, non Supreme Court courts, DOD etc – what we now know as the Deep State. The US Deep State comprises unelected state actors whose actions are controlled by the “TNT” handlers. The global media are another important and significant efferent arm of the “TNT”.

      Only Mr Trump can wean America from the “TNT” teat. Why Donald? TNT cannot control The Donald! He is not one of them and they have no leverage. That is why the fear him so. Could anyone other than the TNT have the power to file 88 charges against a former and future US President? Could Brandon, LOL? The TNT is pulling the strings in the states of GA and NY AND the Feds.
