Shocking bipartisan movement underway that has the Radical Left nervous

The Radical Left has been forcing their agenda on the world for years. But now, all of that is about to change

Because a bipartisan movement is underway that has the Left nervous.

A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers has raised serious concerns about the credibility of the International Criminal Court (ICC), warning that the court risks undermining its standing if it proceeds with arrest warrants for Israeli officials.

These warrants would be in response to Israel’s military actions against Hamas following the October 7 massacre.

Reports suggest that the ICC may be considering arrest warrants for key Israeli figures, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, and Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi.

This development comes amid a contentious backdrop of international relations, where the legitimacy and jurisdiction of the ICC are frequently questioned by several major nations, including the United States, Russia, China, and India.

A senior Biden administration official emphasized to Axios that the United States does not recognize the ICC’s jurisdiction in this matter and opposes any ICC investigations into Israeli actions.

The sentiment reflects a broader skepticism about the ICC’s actions, which some U.S. officials and lawmakers perceive as overreaching.

This skepticism has prompted some U.S. lawmakers to draft legislation aimed at sanctioning ICC officials involved in the investigation into Israel.

These proposed sanctions highlight the growing tensions between the ICC and the United States over issues of sovereignty and international law.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has vocally opposed the ICC’s potential moves, asserting Israel’s right to self-defense and criticizing the ICC’s actions as a threat to democracy and an affront to all countries fighting terrorism.

“The threat to seize the soldiers and officials of the Middle East’s only democracy and the world’s only Jewish state is outrageous,” Netanyahu stated. “We will not bow to it,” he affirmed, declaring Israel’s determination to continue its defense efforts against what he described as genocidal terrorists.

U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson called the potential ICC actions “disgraceful” and “illegitimate,” arguing that such moves would undermine U.S. national security interests and could set a dangerous precedent that might affect American political leaders, diplomats, and military personnel.

Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) and Representative Ritchie Torres (D-NY) also expressed their disapproval on social media, emphasizing the potential damage to the ICC’s judicial and moral standing and criticizing the perceived injustice of targeting Israel for defending itself against Hamas attacks.

Representative Brad Sherman (D-CA) highlighted the inconsistency in the ICC’s prosecutorial decisions, noting the court’s failure to address significant atrocities in other regions such as Syria, Sudan, and Tigray.

“Instead, the ICC apparently considers warrants on Israeli leaders for legitimate self-defense. Such a decision would be outrageous, and I condemn it,” Sherman stated.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) went further, suggesting that any move by the ICC to target Israeli officials would align the court with what he called “genocidal terrorists,” undermining its credibility irreparably. Cruz called for strong U.S. sanctions against the ICC should it proceed in this manner.

The bipartisan response underscores a rare unity in U.S. politics regarding the support for Israel and the opposition to terrorist groups and any support for them.
