Trump and Netanyahu: To be Charged with War Crimes by International Criminal Criminal Court

Published on June 4 as “Operating Outside the Rule of Law: Washington Pressures International Criminal Court”.

According to Philip Giraldi, Donald Trump, a shameless Zionist puppet , is Israel’s partner in crime. America and Israel are both joined at the hip and are currently under investigation by the International  Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes. Both countries  are now widely regarded, and justifiably so, as gangster states. 


There is apparently no limit to what the United States and Israel can get away with without any consequences.

The United States has been waging devastating economic warfare against Iran and Venezuela while also blaming China for a global health crisis that it is unwilling to help address due to its withdrawal from the World Health Organization.

Israel meanwhile is planning on illegally annexing significant parts of the Palestinian West Bank in July, with a green light from the Trump Administration, and no one in Europe or elsewhere is even interested in initiating serious sanctions that might lead to the postponing of that decision.

TRUMP AND NETANYAHU:
PARTNERS  IN  CRIME

Both leaders are engaged in acts of wanton cruelty toward the Palestinians, such as blinding children by shooting them in the eyes. Meanwhile the plunder of Palestine and the annexation of its lands continues at full throttle with  Donald Trump’s full support.  


  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has even stated flatly that the remaining Palestinians who would be annexed will not become Israeli citizens – they will instead be “subjects” of the Jewish state with no guaranteed rights or privileges.

The American Establishment is totally committed to the principle that the United States and Israel should have a “free hand” in dealing with other countries in their respective spheres of influence. That effectively means controlling the narrative so that the U.S. and the Jewish state always appear to be victims of other nations’ unprincipled behavior and also creating an environment where there can be no effective legal challenges to aggressive action.

Indeed, the one organization that was specifically set up to deal with issues like aggressive wars and ethnic cleansing, the International Criminal Court (ICC) at the Hague, has been specifically targeted by both Washington and Jerusalem to deny it any jurisdiction in situations where either country is involved.

Neither Israel nor the United States has recognized the ICC for the obvious reason that they are primary sources of egregious human rights and international law violations.

Israel is particularly concerned over its numerous war crimes, to include its violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention which forbids “the transfer, directly or indirectly, by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies, or the deportation or transfer of all or parts of the population of the occupied territory within or outside this territory.”

The ICC has, in fact, been targeted recently by both the Trump Administration and Congress.

Two weeks ago, a bipartisan group of 69 United States senators submitted to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a letter condemning the “dangerous politicization of the court” that “unfairly targets Israel.” The Senators urged Pompeo to continue his “vigorous support of Israel as it faces the growing possibility of investigations and prosecutions by the International Criminal Court.” The letter included the claim that “actions currently underway could lead to the prosecution of Israeli nationals…” even though “the ICC does not enjoy legitimate jurisdiction in this case.”

The assertion that the ICC does not have jurisdiction is questionable at best as the “Palestinian State” has observer status and is a member of international bodies at the United Nations. It is also a signatory to the Rome Statute that established the ICC. The Senate letter itself was predictably written by Ester Kurz, the legislative director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is the leading Israel advocacy group in the United States. A similar letter was also circulated in the House of Representatives, which added an “American issue” by criticizing the ICC’s intention to investigate United States war crimes in Afghanistan. It received 262 signatures.

Anticipating the threat to Israeli interests, the U.S. Congress has long made security and other assistance to the Palestinian Authority conditional, suspending all support if “the Palestinians initiate an International Criminal Court (ICC) judicially authorized investigation, or actively support such an investigation, that subjects Israeli nationals to an investigation for alleged crimes against Palestinians.”

As Donald Trump has de facto cut off virtually all assistance, including the humanitarian aid given to refugees, the punishment for going to the ICC is essentially moot and the Palestinians have consequently moved ahead with their complaint in an attempt to upset the timetable for Israeli annexation.

The Senators’ letter surfaced at the same time as a warning was issued by Pompeo to the ICC that focused on Israel but was clearly intended to derail any attempts to look at American war crimes in Afghanistan. He claimed that the ICC is a political body, not a legitimate judicial institution, and accused chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda of maliciously investigating “Israeli war crimes in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem.” His complaint paralleled the Senatorial letter, which is perhaps no coincidence, in claiming that the court has no jurisdiction and the Palestinians are not “sovereign” and therefore have no standing to go to the court in the first place.

And Pompeo concluded with a threat: “A court that attempts to exercise its power outside its jurisdiction is a political tool that makes a mockery of the law and due process. If the ICC continues down its current course, we will exact consequences.”

Israel has also claimed, as does the United States, that it is not subject to ICC “trial” because it has a functioning court system that is capable of punishing war criminals. Of course, the fact is that Israel does not do so and the U.S. only does so when embarrassed.

The most recent American war criminal was convicted by military courts and then pardoned by President Donald Trump. He was even feted at the White House.

Bensouda announced in November 2017 that she would proceed with an investigation of alleged U.S. war crimes in Afghanistan. The Trump Administration expressed its anger by criticizing her in tweets, canceling her visa to the United States, and threatening legal action against her, her staff and even ICC judges. The White House warned that if the ICC even dares to detain an American citizen the United States would use military force to release him or her. President Trump, Pompeo, and John Bolton all called the ICC “political, corrupt, irresponsible, unaccountable, and lacking transparency, and therefore illegitimate.” The critique sounded oddly enough like an accurate description of the Trump Administration itself.

Chief Prosecutor for the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda, who has been timid about confronting Israel in the past, is now reportedly proceeding with the Palestinian complaint. She has also been authorized to proceed with her investigation of American crimes in Afghanistan. If there is to be an actual trial, high-level politicians, officials, and military officers from both Israel and the U.S. could be summoned for questioning. If the summonses are ignored, which is probable, the prosecutor could then issue international arrest warrants, meaning that they could be arrested and extradited to the Court if they were to travel to any of the 123 countries that are parties to the Rome Statute.

So, one can expect both the United States and Israel to continue their defamation of the ICC, to include the threats of armed response coming from Washington.

An attack on The Hague might be unimaginable in the real world, but the past three years have demonstrated that Donald Trump is capable of almost anything.

  1. I remember the condemnation heaped upon the head of Yassar Arafat for being “terrorist”. The United States government advocated that condemnation like it advocated the destruction of South Africa. Now, we white Americans are about to suffer the same fate as the Palestinians and South Afrikaners. The president in whom some of us placed great hope has betrayed us – but to whom can we turn for leadership? We must begin to consider the establishment of secret cells – much like the IRA did in Ireland; much like Arafat did in the ME. “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars” comes to mind…

    1. (COMMENT REPOSTED FROM PREVIOUS KAMINSKI THREAD)

      Take care Gilbert. Do not be a sacrificial lamb. Guerilla tactics, lots of sniping and go after the Antifa scum. The Rothschilds, Soros, etc will be hard to get as they are covered by layers of security. In a time of no laws, it is time for the outlaw to arise. Things can only get worse in the USA as corruption is ingrained and IS the system you are trying to eke out an existence within.

      The system is loaded against you. ….There are no good Jews, as Jesus said. One way or another they all worship their high priesthood, the Red Shielders or Rothschilds. Every single facet of our lives is now part of Bolshevik Satan worshipping. It is like trying to live in an apple that is rotten to the core. The only way out of that apple’s stench is by destroying the apple.

      It is time for the revolt of the truth loving, decent people. If the scums’ blood must fill rivers, so be it. I’m not waiting around for God to judge them, as he’s had over 2,000 years to deal with the insidious priesthood.

  2. gun sales going sky high now, white people buying guns, shelves empty…
    blacks stealing them…
    blacks arrested for attacking whites, but they’ll never do any time…
    not enough room in prisons now, so what do the globalist governors do?
    they close prisons, eliminate police departments… a clear act of national sabotage…
    it’s been said before “the first rule of war is treachery”…
    eventually they’ll end up like the guy who invented the guillotine, killed in the reign of terror they fostered…
    why any jew or liberal white politician would think his kind will be spared by these mobs of savages is beyond me… of all the white people blacks detest Jews are probably on top of the list…
    it’s only a matter of time now until the bbb hits the cities…
    the gangs are the enemy militias…

  3. Aside from killing Palestinian on a daily basis, Under Crime Minister Satanyahu ISISrael has beome America’s Military Contractor in Syria, as it hits targets inside Syria on a weekly bases while the world looks the other way.

    Prove it!!!

    1. Exactly Mr Pat! When will people get the fact that it’s all for show. It’s laughable. The corridors of power are a plaything for the jews.

      There are no foreign powers. They all work together to manufacture the destruction of European ethnicity and civilisation.

      The heads of white men are so confused. There are over 20,000 mercenaries operating in the middle east region as guns for hire. The large portion of them are of white European stock.

      Prove it!!!

      There’s no need for such juvenile aggression or rudeness to Admin. LD does not need to justify her title to you personally when the answer to your question lies in this quote at the end of the article. Note the underlined sentence in bold print:

      “Chief Prosecutor for the International Criminal Court Fatou Bensouda, who has been timid about confronting Israel in the past, is now reportedly proceeding with the Palestinian complaint. She has also been authorized to proceed with her investigation of American crimes in Afghanistan. If there is to be an actual trial, high-level politicians, officials, and military officers from both Israel and the U.S. could be summoned for questioning.

      When there is talk of “arrests warrants” and “extradition” to the Hague for trial if the perpetrators set foot in any of 123 countries, this is exactly the same as saying that Trump and Netanyahu will be “arrested and charged with war crimes” if they dare to leave America or Israel and visit any of 123 countries.

      1. Silent Reader,

        I think Pat’s comment is perfectly legitimate.
        You need to put your axe away and join the human race.

      2. A silly question, since there’s no such thing as a male or female as such. We are all what we identify with at a particular moment. Thus I may be “male” during daylight hours, going to work in a suit and tie. As soon as I get home, I change into a dress and high heels and greet my “husband” with a kiss. Then I fix my makeup in the bathroom mirror. I am fluent gendered or ambisexual, swing six different ways depending on my mood. I refused to be pined down as male or female.

      3. I apologize for my off-topic comment. But you need to apologize to me for calling me a “transgender freak”. That is totally unacceptable. You are a tinpot dictator who abuses your power as a monitor of this site to oppress and persecute the transgender minority. I demand an apology at once, you hateful little tyrant.

      4. SR –

        FYI – I was challenging the PROSECUTOR – not LASHA…

        I saw the words “REPORTEDLY” & “COULD” too many times for the PROSECUTOR’S statement to have any teeth.

        So… calm down & STOP GUESSING!!! 🙂

      5. Pat,

        Sincere apologies. I stand corrected.
        I got my shoelaces tangled up and came a cropper.
        OUCH! 🙂

  5. I was under the wrong impression that no one could sue the state of ISISrael in US court of law (not a written law) much less to file war crimes against Israeli official in the US. I was wrong.

    According to Feb. 26, 2020 article in the Common Dreams. Palestinians filed a suit against Trump, Crime Minister Satanyuhu, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, US Ambassador David Friedman, Jared Kushner and others for their involvement in ‘the denationalization and dehumanization of Palestinian population” in the the occupied Palestine. I am not holding my breath. I will be happy to see when the European nations and other issue a warrant for the their arrest..

  6. Successive US governments have brought shame on the Great Rpeublic by fulfilling the Zionists’ wish list.

  7. More little ditties while waiting for the earth to heave and the sky to fall….

    Trump’s paws have no claws
    His growl a stark reminder
    of flapping jaws
    for sterile cause
    The role of paper tiger
    ****************
    The strident prose
    and insolent pose
    These evil charms of voodoo
    Whom Satan chose
    to tend his groves
    one Benny Netanyahu

  8. You and I are same but on two different road yours is Christianity and mine is Islam

    ADMIN: If you love Islam, then I advise you strongly not to use words like f*uck — even with an asterisk — as you did in a previous comment. The Prophet, as you know, would not have approved of this.

  9. “So, one can expect both the United States and Israel to continue their defamation of the ICC,…”

    So could we get the Anti-Defamation League / ADL to defend the ICC? Is that reasonable? (I’m new to this stuff.)
