Netanyahu tells Fox he’ll fight against ICC’s ‘perversion of justice’

In an interview with Fox News, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls the move by the ICC to launch a probe into possible war crimes by Israel and the Palestinians “an outrageous decision.”

He says the decision targets “the one democracy in the Middle East” while ignoring countries such as Iran snd Syria, which he contends are serial rights abusers.

“This is pure anti-Semitism,” he says, and “an affront for all democracies.”

He vows to “fight for the truth, fight against this perversion of justice until it is null and void.”
