Israel is on trial at the UN, and is trying to turn the tables and put the UN on trial.
They really do cry out as they strike you.
Israel will pursue its war against Hamas until victory and will not be stopped by anyone, including the world court, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a defiant speech Saturday, as the fighting in Gaza approached the 100-day mark.
Netanyahu spoke after the International Court of Justice at The Hague held two days of hearings on South Africa’s allegations that Israel is committing genocide against Palestinians, a charge Israel has rejected as libelous and hypocritical. South Africa asked the court to order Israel to halt its blistering air and ground offensive in an interim step.
“No one will stop us, not The Hague, not the axis of evil and not anyone else,” Netanyahu said in televised remarks Saturday evening, referring to Iran and its allied militias.

The case before the world court is expected to go on for years, but a ruling on interim steps could come within weeks. Court rulings are binding but difficult to enforce. Netanyahu made clear that Israel would ignore orders to halt the fighting, potentially deepening its isolation.
Israel has been under growing international pressure to end the war, which has killed more than 23,000 Palestinians in Gaza and led to widespread suffering in the besieged enclave, but has so far been shielded by U.S. diplomatic and military support.
Thousands took to the streets of Washington, London, Paris, Rome, Milan and Dublin on Saturday to demand an end to the war. Protesters converging on the White House held aloft signs questioning President Joe Biden’s viability as a presidential candidate because of his staunch support for Israel during the war.
Obviously, the Hamas attack was a legitimate military operation, whereas what Israel is doing is simply mass murder.
I think that is obvious to everyone.
It’s unclear how Jews are planning to function in a world where they are feared and hated, more or less universally.
Aside from some portion of Fatmericans, I don’t think anyone supports Israel, on the whole earth, after this Gaza thing, and I don’t think anyone is going to forget this in the next several hundred years.

Protesting for Palestine.
Protesting to end the slaughter.
Protesting to end the genocide.
Sunak and Starmer do not speak for the people.
Sanctions against Israel now.
