The International Criminal Court (ICC) has once again demonstrated its troubling bias by seeking arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant. The charges against them — "willful killing," "starvation of civilians as a method of warfare," and "willfully causing great suffering" — are gross misrepresentations of Israel's efforts to defend itself against Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

The ICC's move to target Netanyahu is unprecedented, marking the first time the court has pursued the leader of a close U.S. ally. This decision comes despite Netanyahu's prior appeals to President Joe Biden to prevent such an outcome.

The ICC's accusations fail to recognize the context of Israel's actions, which are aimed solely at neutralizing a persistent and violent threat.

Hamas, which initiated the current conflict with a brutal attack on Israel on Oct. 7, is a recognized terrorist organization responsible for heinous acts including murder, rape, and kidnapping of innocent civilians.
