Netanyahu 'Invokes Another Genocidal Biblical Reference' While Scolding The ICC ChrisMenahan

Benjamin Netanyahu made yet another veiled allusion to "wiping out Amalek" during his speech denouncing the ICC, Mondoweiss reports.

The remark, which Netanyahu only made in his Hebrew speech intended for Israeli consumption, was reportedly "sending a message that he will not make the same mistake as King Saul by not completely eradicating Amalek." 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has argued that there have only been a few dozen officially confirmed deaths from starvation among Palestinian civilians in Gaza over the course of the Israeli war with Hamas, dismissing the International Criminal Court's accusations as blatant lies.

On May 20, the International Criminal Court announced that it was seeking arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his defense minister, and three leaders of Hamas for war crimes committed in Gaza. President Biden denounced this demand, stating that, “There is no equivalence between Israel and Hamas,” and also denied that Israel was carrying out a genocide.

This is part of a long-running pattern for Biden and his advisers.

Will Israel eventually come up with its own Hague Invasion Act

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell on Tuesday commented on the International Criminal Court (ICC) issuing arrest warrants for top Israeli officials over alleged war crimes in Gaza. He stressed in the statement that all European Union member countries will be legally required to oblige.

In recordings obtained by The Grayzone, a self-proclaimed soldier from Israel’s infamous Netzah Yehuda battalion detailed his unit’s killing of a 78-year-old Palestinian-American, and flaunted his genocidal views. After announcing plans to sanction the battalion, the Biden administration has inexplicably pulled back.

The UN said Tuesday that it halted food distribution in the southern Gaza city of Rafah due to the lack of supplies and that no aid trucks were entering the Strip through the US-built pier, The Associated Press reported.

Israeli officials have agreed on a more “limited” operation in the southern Gaza city of Rafah that won’t be opposed by President Biden, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius reported on Monday.

Ignatius said Israeli officials have reached a “consensus” about a “final assault” against four Hamas battalions Israel believes remain in Rafah.
