Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that the ICC decision to open an investigation into Israel is “the epitome of anti-Semitism and hypocrisy.”
“The State of Israel is under attack tonight,” he says.
“The court set up to prevent the recurrence of the atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis against the Jewish people is now turning against the state of the Jewish people,” Netanyahu charges. “Of course, it does not say a word against Iran, Syria and other dictatorships that are committing real war crimes.”
The prime minister promises to act “to reverse the scandalous decision.”
