We Have Their Attention on Israel

Barb Wire

A couple weeks ago, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu schooled the world, the press, former President Jimmy Carter, and the Obama administration on the barbaric tactics employed by Hamas in using civilian people and facilities to protect their munitions. He called Hamas’ horrific actions, “child sacrifice.” The Prime Minister also met with a congressional delegation headed by Congressman Steve Israel (D-NY). The Congressman told the NY Post after the meeting…

The Prime Minister asked us to work together to ensure that this strategy of going to the ICC [International Criminal Court] does not succeed.  Netanyahu wants the US to use all the tools that we have at our disposal to, number one, make sure the world knows that war crimes were not committed by Israel, they were committed by Hamas. And that Israel should not be held to a double standard.

Mr. Netanyahu is rightfully concerned that anti-Semitic sentiments, like those fostered by former President Jimmy Carter calling Israel’s attacks on Hamas “war crimes,” will rise to the level of international backlash and formal charges of criminality.

Liberty Counsel stands by the Israeli Defense Forces’ use of power to defend itself against an enemy whose stated purpose is the annihilation of the Jewish state. We will also stand with Israel should there be any movement toward charging the nation with war crimes in an international tribunal.
