Democrat Congressman Rips The ICC Over Israeli Arrest Warrants

 Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) slammed the International Criminal Court during an interview over the weekend over the arrest warrant applications that they filed for Israeli leaders last week.

The ICC filed for arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant for what they claimed were war crimes in Israel’s war against the Hamas terrorist organization.

Moskowitz made the remarks during a Sunday interview on “Fox News Sunday” with host Shannon Bream when asked about the development from last week.

“When [Syrian dictator] Assad killed 300,000 civilians using chemical weapons if you recall, which was a red line for this country, did the ICC go after Assad? No, they didn’t because they said Syria was not a party to the ICC,” he said. “People have asked them to look at the human rights violations in China, have they gone after China? No, the ICC has specifically said China is not a party to the ICC.”

“But is Israel a party to the ICC? They are not, and yet they are now going after Israel,” he continued. “This is totally political. The ICC is irrelevant. They have no jurisdiction. We might as well call them the Harry Potter Ministry of Magic. They’re irrelevant because Israel is not a party to their treaty.”
