'ICC Was A Hoax From the Start': How The Rules Were Broken To Deny Justice To Israel's Victims in Gaza - by Ali Abunimah
"The International Criminal Court (ICC) was a hoax from the start.' So said Michael Mandel, a professer at Osgoode Law School at York University in Toronto, in response to the ICC's shocking decision yesterday to refuse jurisdiction over Gaza war crimes without even referring the matter to judges.
'It's disgraceful but not surprising that the ICC has dismissed Palestine's complaint against Israel. It sat on the complaint for over three years, always proudly announcing that it was investigating it to give the appearance of impartiality. Meanwhile the ICC jumped to attention in less than three weeks when the US government, which is not a signatory to the treaty wanted to go to war with Libya, justifying Western aggression with bogus charges against the Libyan regime.
Ocampo and company have been busy putting Africans on trial for crimes aided, abetted and exploited by the rich countries, while the US government killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and tens of thousands of Afghans, and Israel has been committing Nuremberg's 'Supreme International Crime' of aggression against the Palestinians for 45 years.."
but bring on Joseph Kony..
