UK Government Lawyers Jewing the ICC to Delay Netanyahu Arrest Warrant

Why is the UK so insanely Jewish?

There aren’t even that many Jews there, and somehow these people are as Jewish – if not more so – than the Americans.

The Guardian:

An intervention by the UK government at the international criminal court is expected to delay a decision over whether an arrest warrant can be issued against the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, for alleged war crimes in Gaza.

Judges at the ICC ruled on Thursday they would allow the UK to make legal arguments in the case as they consider whether to approve requests made by the ICC’s chief prosecutor for warrants against Netanyahu and his defence minister, Yoav Gallant.

According to court papers, after the prosecutor made the requests the UK argued that the judges hearing the case must address “outstanding” questions about the ICC’s jurisdiction over Israeli citizens before deciding whether to issue the warrants.

The decision to allow the UK to submit arguments in the case has caused concern among some international law experts that Britain’s intervention is politically motivated and an attempt to reopen legal issues many argue have previously been settled.

In February 2021, a panel of ICC judges issued a ruling confirming the ICC had jurisdiction in the occupied Palestinian territories. The decision cleared the way for the ICC’s previous chief prosecutor to open a criminal investigation into alleged atrocities in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

However, last month the UK government told an ICC pre-trial chamber the 2021 ruling “did not determine” jurisdictional issues relating to the Oslo accords, the interim peace agreements signed between the Palestine Liberation Organisation and Israel in the 1990s.

UK government lawyers argued the judges have to therefore “make an initial determination” over whether the ICC can exercise jurisdiction over Israeli citizens “in circumstances where Palestine cannot exercise criminal jurisdiction over Israeli nationals pursuant to the Oslo accords”.

Experts said the decision to allow the UK to intervene on this issue could cause delays to the arrest warrants case, though a former ICC official familiar with the 2021 case said the jurisdictional issues had been resolved and, if challenged, would be “dead on arrival”.

What does the UK gain from supporting Israel so strongly?

At least with the US, we can say “well, there’s this massive Jew lobby that ensures the government is permanently run by the Jews.”

But the UK doesn’t really even have that.
