Netanyahu Denounces War Crime Probe of Israel
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has again denounced the move by the International Criminal Court to launch an inquiry into possible war crimes committed against the Palestinians. In a recent televised speech, he called the move “absurd.”
Netanyahu said the “ultimate folly” of the decision was that the democracy of Israel, a world leader in fighting terrorism, was being investigated by the ICC. At the same time, he said, “the terrorist criminals of Hamas” will be pressing the charges.
He said he would not be surprised if the Islamic State, al-Qaida and Hezbollah followed suit.
