Germany: ICC asking for arrest warrants for Hamas leaders is logical, not so for Israel

A request by the International Criminal Court for arrest warrants for Hamas leaders is logical and no comparisons can be made with Israel’s prime minister and defense minister, for whom warrants are also being sought, a German government spokesperson says.

“The accusations of the chief prosecutor are serious and must be substantiated,” says the spokesperson. He adds that Germany assumes Israel’s democratic system and rule of law with a strong, independent judiciary will be taken into account by judges deciding whether to issue the warrants.
