ICC to launch investigation into alleged Israeli war crimes – TV7 Israel News 14.01.20

Shalom and good evening, this is TV7 Israel
News broadcast to you from Jerusalem; And in today’s top stories;
Jerusalem is bracing itself for possible measures, which the International Criminal Court in
The Hague might take against the Jewish State in the near future, in light of a recommendation
that was made by the court’s chief prosecutor, to commence with an investigation into Palestinian’
claimed allegations that ‘Israel had committed war crimes and crimes against humanity.’ Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, in a televised
address to the Iranian Parliament last night, referred to the downing of the Ukraine International
Airlines flight 752 “an unforgivable error.” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson insists
that the United Kingdom is not keen on war with the Islamic Republic of Iran; and calls
on U.S. President Donald Trump to provide an alternative to the 2015 nuclear agreement. Jerusalem is bracing itself for possible measures,
which the International Criminal Court in The Hague might take against the Jewish State
in the near future, in light of a recommendation that was made, on the 20th of December 2019,
by the court’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, to commence with an investigation into Palestinian’
claimed allegations that Israel had committed war crimes and crimes against humanity. In her public announcement, the ICC’s Chief
Prosecutor insisted that ‘all the statutory criteria for the launch of an investigation
have been met,’ in defiance of repeated legal objections by Israel – which is not
a signatory of the Rome Statute – over a lack of the court’s jurisdiction across
the internationally disputed territories of east Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza Strip. “Today, I announce that following a thorough,
independent and objective assessment of all reliable information available to my Office,
the preliminary examination into the Situation in Palestine has concluded with the determination
that all the statutory criteria under the Rome Statute for the opening of an investigation
have been met.” “In brief, I am satisfied (1) that war crimes
have been or are being committed in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza
Strip ; (2) that potential cases arising from the situation would be admissible; and (3)
there are no substantial reasons to believe that an investigation would not serve the
interests of justice.” Bensouda further insisted in her statement
that because the Palestinians, which she referred to as the State of Palestine, had requested
the intervention of the court she did not require to request approval from judges to
start an investigation. “As there has been a referral from the State
of Palestine, there is no requirement to seek Pre-Trial Chamber’s authorization before proceeding
to open an investigation.” Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, whose
government in Ramallah submitted the request for an ICC investigation into alleged Israeli
war-crimes, praised the Chief Prosecutor’s decision as an “accomplishment” that opens
the door for the Palestinian narrative to be internationally adopted. “Today is great day for us because we accomplished
what we need because from today the international crime court will start to accept all the issues.” In contrast to the Palestinian leader’s
celebratory remarks; Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to the Chief prosecutor’s
decision as “a dark day for truth and justice.” “This is a dark day for truth and justice. The ICC prosecutor has decided not to dismiss
outright the Palestinian claim against the State of Israel. It is a baseless and outrageous decision. The court has no jurisdiction in this case. The ICC only has jurisdiction over petitions
submitted by sovereign states. But there has never been a Palestinian state. The ICC prosecutor’s decision has turned the
International Criminal Court into a political tool to delegitimize the State of Israel.” Netanyahu further highlighted the absurdity
of the prosecutor, who blatantly ignored the history of the Jewish people. “The prosecutor has completely ignored the
legal arguments we presented to her. She has also completely ignored history and
the truth when she says that the very act of Jews living in their ancestral homeland,
the land of the Bible, that this a war crime. We will not be silent. We will not bow our heads before this outrage. We will continue to speak out against this
travesty of justice.” In spite of Israel’s vocal objection to
the investigation, the International Criminal Court has begun to draft international arrest
warrants against senior Israeli officials. If the International Criminal Court’s judges
accept the prosecutor’s request and authorize beginning an investigation, then within 90
days, international arrest warrants will be issued against a number of senior Israelis,
who will be defined as suspects of war crimes. Those warrants will be valid in all countries
that are members of the International Criminal Court. Under those circumstances, both past and present
Israeli officials will be liable to be taken into custody while overseas. Meanwhile, in response to this development,
the Israeli Foreign Ministry has begun to pursue political and diplomatic avenues, to
enlist as many friendly countries around the world as it can to apply pressure on the ICC
to decide against beginning an investigation. Israel has thus far received pledges of support
from the United States, Canada, Australia and Hungary, as well as Germany, which expressed
only partial support. The countries that support Jerusalem’s position
argue that the Palestinian Authority is not a sovereign state and, as such, is not authorized
to join the International Criminal Court and to sign international treaties. Furthermore, they also voiced support for
Israel’s position vis-à-vis the dispute over territory and borders, which can only
be resolved by means of direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian leadership. Now in other news;
The Israeli government in Jerusalem had recently asked of the defense establishment to issue
entry-permits into Israel for 500 Palestinian businessmen from the Hamas-controlled Gaza
Strip, in direct response to the relative-clam that presides in Israel’s southern sector. The 500 entry permits are expected to be issued
in addition to the 5,000 Palestinian businessmen who have already been authorized to enter
the Jewish State. Furthermore, in addition to the 500 businessmen
that are expected to be granted entry into Israel – if the Hamas-controlled territory
remains peaceful – Jerusalem is also expected to issue entry permits to Palestinian laborers
from the coastal enclave. Nevertheless, it is important to note, that
the latter course of action is faced with adamant resistance by the Israel Security
Agency, Shin Bet. While senior IDF officials vocally support
granting Gazan Palestinian work-visas, in efforts to alleviate the economic distress
within the Jihadist infested territory; the Shin Bet has consistently opposed the measure
at the present juncture in time, for fear that the Jihadist groups in Gaza would exploit
the Palestinian laborers – who would be permitted to enter the Jewish State – for intelligence
purposes. Turning now to the Islamic Republic, where;
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, in a televised address to the Iranian Parliament last night,
referred to the downing of the Ukraine International Airlines flight 752 “an unforgivable error.” “As soon as I discovered the crash was not
normal and ordinary, I put in a lot of effort to shorten the investigation so that we know
exactly how the plane crashed.” / “It was a very painful and unforgivable
error and I immediately ordered the people in charge to inform the people.” The Iranian leader reiterated his country’s
apology over the deadly incident, which claimed the lives of 176 people, and stressed the
need to form a special court that will exercise so-called justice. “I promise that the state with all its will
and facilities will follow up this issue. This is a very important issue.” / “The judiciary should form a special court
with a high-ranking judge and tens of experts. This is not an ordinary case; all the world
will be watching this case of ours.” It is important to note that Iran’s judiciary
announced this morning that arrests have been made over the shootdown of Ukrainian airliner. Judiciary spokesman Gholam-hossein Esmaili
was quoted by Iranian state media saying that “extensive investigations have taken place
and some individuals have been arrested.” Esmaili stopped short, however, of providing
details regarding the number of the detained suspects. Meanwhile in London;
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson insisted that the United Kingdom is not keen on war
with the Islamic Republic of Iran. In his first interview of the new year with
the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Breakfast program, the Premier called on all parties
involved to ‘dial tensions down’, while at the same time, accusing the Ayatollah regime
of holding the Iranian people captive. “I don’t want a military conflict between
us, between the United States and Iran. Let’s dial this thing down. And you know Iran, when you look at it, it’s
an amazing country. It’s 80 million people. It’s got a young population. They’re literate. They should be orientated towards free markets,
towards our way of doing things. And yet they’re the captives. They’re the prisoners of this approach, this
government that they have. With regard to the nuclear deal with Iran,
Prime Minister Johnson urged U.S. President Donald Trump to provide an alternative to
the 2015 nuclear deal – that will offer the international community widely desired
assurances that will ultimately stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. “My point to our American friends is, look,
somehow or other, we’ve got to stop the Iranians acquiring a nuclear weapon. I think that’s the most – that’s what the
the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action agreement does, the JCPOA. But if we’re going to get rid of it, then
we need a replacement.” For more information on Israel and its region

  • I try to wake people up to the fact that most of the muslims that have scurried into Gaza since the RE-ESTABLISHMENT of The State of Israel have zero heritage in The Holy Land. is-lame is the most obvious false religion in the entire world, just a few hours of reading islamic literature would convince most non imbeciles of this.

  • Read my lips UK, you cannot negotiate with Terrorist Ayatollah Clownships . Impossible. They Lie ,and cannot be trusted. ☝️😡🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • The only war crimes are the ones that the Arab Palestinians do. They dont belong in Israel. They should go back to Egypt , Syria, Iraq. Israel only belongs to the Jews .☝️😡🇺🇸

  • The killings of Christians thruogh north Africa east Africa and western Asia for the past 30 years are war crimes that they won't address.

  • Why should USA do anything. If certain people do not want to get with the rest of the world.. than take them out of the world society until there willingness to be non threat to the world

  • ICC act like GOD division harassment to Small Nation politically motivated bias you must really investigation strains who are guilty of provoking terrorist act proxy by Iran and other countries

  • Reynaldo Enrique Román Riveros says:

    The International Criminal Court should be outlawed!! They're on the wrong side of history!! Shame on them for their hostilities towards Israel!! Am Israel Chai!!!🇮🇱

  • As Benjamin Netanyahu has said the Iranians will never honor any agreements especially concerning nuclear weapons. Isolate them and let that government shrivel and die. They will be defeated during the Ezekiel war. Then Israel will have to suffer the tribulation in order to return to God. It is a process repeated from the Old Testament to today with all of mankind. Stubborn disobedience is the human condition.

  • Maam pls try and find something else to do,aslo investigate the rockets fired into southern israel, you are just a busy body you icc

  • Yael Yohann Ben Levi says:

    Fatou Bensauda is a Muslim and of course will be sided on Muslims side bec. her religion dictates so, therefore is Bias to accuse Israel of all fraud war crimes!

    Our world is suffered still by obsessed Islamic political ideology, we Eritrean /Agazian-orthodex also victims of this ideology, why? Why we Eritrean like Isreal victims of malti-system ! Icc is one of the systems. But as long as Israel live, strategically we are also safe , long live Israel !

  • USER112358134711 says:

    Mrs Bensouda ignores the crimes of China, Iran, Syria, Turkey, Venezuela, Myanmar, Philippines etc and occupies her staff only with the country with millions of brutal enemies, Israel. Is that another coincidence…?

  • Yael Yohann Ben Levi says:

    Iranians military hit the target plane for the fuel of Revenge but hit the wrong target not by
    mistakes but to give the world a message that they are willing to sacrifice other civilians including Iranians to keep Iranian military power throughout the world & every region in the middle east!

  • Tell the ICC the Jewish State will respond if Fatou Bensouda says the word "Israel", which she seems to purposefully avoid. Maybe this was the only way they could keep her from calling Israel "The Occupation." Good thing the UN is fair and impartial, I can see why they gave her the job.

  • Sence when the international icc has the right over Israel
    How can't the icc can'tsee that the palestenian are d the real terroris

  • This woman is obviously delusional, if not demonically influenced. #1 There is no palestinian state, #2, Israel is the only democracy in the Middle east, which does not persecute people of other faiths. #3 Irán, which is the #1exporter of terror around the World, and has openly cursed, and threatened, Israel by driving them into the sea, which should be the country, tried for crimes against humanity, is not condemned. Truly the prophecy, "I will bring all nations into the valley of jehoshaphat, and will plead with them There for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and parted my land. JOEL 3:2 Is being fulfilled. Pray for Israel, and the pea e of Jerusalén.

  • Rajendran Nallappan says:

    Don't bother the stupid 1sided ICC. The have taken bribe from Muslim organization. Corrupted culprits. Benjamin stand strong, The Almighty God bless Israel

  • Satan, and his world system, will never stop lying against God's chosen nation and people, until our Lord crushes him, for the last time, under His feet, and we see him kneel, and hear him confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. I am brother Jonathan praying for your requests, and am so honored to do. Thank you brother for trusting me with those sincere requests. Rest assured, I shall never let you down my beloved brother. God bless you, and then, bless you more.

  • Iran is a grown nation that has led and supported terror for over fifty years.

    The UK wants us to bribe Iran. There is a reason why the UK is having so many problems, they lack a backbone.

  • Let the world move on to their on strategic its from bore olam when messiah comes Israel will recognize all through the will of God

  • What about in iran,syria,iraq,libya,venezuela,china etc… human right violation? where are you there? why you are focusing in only one democratic nation israel all over MEast?…. see yourself in a mirror….

  • Jesus Gives Beauty for Ashes says:

    Yes, praying for the peace and Salvation of Israel. May God bless you as you broadcast reliable news out to us in these last days. Thank you so much! You are doing a wonderful job!! With love from USA ♥

  • This all have to happen, else how God can smite his people's enemy. My father told propheside thirty years ago. It's time for all Israelites come together before God, He will deliver them from his enemies. PM B.Nathaniyahu is doing great job for his people.

  • At 4:59. THE LAND OF THE BIBLE….AMEN…..God will take care of his people and his land which is Israel and the U.S.A will always help defend Israel the land of God and God people…. End of story

  • Ritchie Ben Natsarim says:

    ICC you lost your credibility the moment you sided with a clan in the Philippines that made the Filipinos suffer for more than three decades. It is good that in your hypocrisy, the Philippines stopped funding you! We paid you from Filipino taxes…the same people who you wanted to continue to suffer! I left the Philippines permanently 5 years ago because of the Cojuanco corruption you support! The Filipinos today are lucky lest the deceptive #msm narrative.


  • Question remains how free world could liberate Iranian people from the clutches of Mullah theocracy ? Why are we so helpless in front of people like Ayatollah, Kim Jung UN, … etc who hold their citizens hostage ? NK is even more scary with nukes increasing its range every month ! And then we have pseudo-democracy like Pakistan with 150 nuclear warheads and 60+ terrorist outfits masquerading as charitable NGOs ! 🇮🇳❤🇮🇱

  • ICC knows in advance that crimes had been committed – why any investigation? its like shooting an arrow in a tree trunk and paint the bulls' eye around it.

  • Rajesh Gowda.Y.R. says:

    Salvation and Peace in the Covenant Land of Israel, May the Lord Yahshua/Jesus Christ turn upside and reverse all the wicked hateful decisions of International Criminal Court's politically motivated wicked decisions.!!
    Unrelenting prayers and blessings to the Jewish Nation Israel and for the City of our Lord/God Jerusalem.!!

  • Lobmib Tanpiall says:

    And how about the War Crimes of Palestine, Iran, Iraq, Syria,Turkey Yemen, Egypt, Lebanon etc???? Is that FAIR ICC???God bless Israel !!!

  • morgan malibumulumba says:

    Chaim Lanetzs Yisrael ! Everlasting Life Israel! Not long time ago has my Dear Friend shared the Truth in the U.N Assembly and said(Search ,Dstroy and Ferrify) He meant the Iranian Nuclear facilities) The Unfaithful Goverments always leads Pain,Destruction and Sorrow. May the Almighty God of Abraham,Issac and Jacob(Israel) bless His Nation Israel, Amen!

  • ICC seems ignorant who started the war in Israel. Since the Arabs were defeated now they accuse Israel of war crimes. How stupid! Why not investigate Syria, Russia and Iran for war crimes in Syria?

  • This thing Fatou Bensauda is a completely ignorant woman, she has no shame to have an agenda of her own, we must call this act Corruption of Truth.

  • It is easy to see how the Iranians have not to say a word about their General Sulaiman, all of this came to an end when Iran shot down the Ukrainian airliner, as all of you can see, The God of Israel will shame these poor and deadly enemy. If this had not happened maybe the situation will be different. I do hope that all the Muslims everywhere may open their eyes and wake-up and change, I know it is wishful thinking, none the less, I hope. I must remind everyone, that no one who stands against Israel will prevail. Thus says The Lord "I will bless those who bless you, and I will course those who course you" Please don't forget This. Thanks, TV7 Israel News, Shalom.

  • Am a child of God says:

    Oh God of Abraham God of Isaac and God of Jacob whatever the plans of the evil people scattered in the name of yeshua hamasheya amen 🙏

  • The International criminal courts are stacked by secular athiests communists and terrorist supporters. The United States does not recognize any of these evil evil antisemites..
    In the End the Lord wins and the Messiah will sit on the throne of David.

  • Adding 4+3 and getting 8 is an error. Proclaiming to the world that Iran would exact vengence then shooting down a 737 with 176 passengers is murder.

  • Thanks Mr.Prime minister .I want justice from heavenly court not International court because it is standing there to reject the truth of the Bible.

  • This is a waste of money,Isreal will be found guilty but USA will not let anything happen to the Israelis.The ICC.,NATO,& all other bodies made by Europeans & Americans r puppets of America.So many times Israel has been found guilty of war crimes,forcibly taking Palestinian land ,nothing done to date .THe Europeans & Americans can wage wars and put sanctions against Muslim countries only. The ICC will only show the world the truth because they can’t deny it,but no action will be taken.

  • Hell's a poppin says:
