A shocking arrest warrant is sending Washington, D.C. into total hysterics

The world is going down the tubes faster than ever. And now heads are about to roll.

Because a shocking arrest warrant is sending Washington, D.C. into total hysterics.

The International Criminal Court stated Monday that it is seeking arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on war crimes accusations, a move widely condemned as a “historic disgrace.”

The allegations are related to the deadly terror attacks on Israel on October 7 and the subsequent conflict in Gaza, the court’s head prosecutor, Karim Khan, said in a statement Monday.

Warrants are also being requested for Israel’s Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, Hamas terror head Yahya Sinwar, and two other senior Hamas officials, Mohammed Deif and Ismail Haniyeh.

The Hamas terror chiefs are charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity, including annihilation, m*rder, torture, r*pe, and hostage snatching.

Israel has been charged with “wilful k*lling,” “starvation of civilians as a method of warfare” along with “wilfully causing great suffering.”

“My office submits that the war crimes alleged in these applications were committed in the context of an international armed conflict between Israel and Palestine, and a non-international armed conflict between Israel and Hamas (together with other Palestinian Armed Groups) running in parallel,” the prosecutor said.

Khan witnessed firsthand the “devastating scenes of these attacks and the profound impact of the unconscionable crimes” during the Oct. 7 Hamas slaughter.

“Speaking with survivors, I heard how the love within a family, the deepest bonds between a parent and a child, were contorted to inflict unfathomable pain through calculated cruelty and extreme callousness. These acts demand accountability,” he said.

Israel’s foreign minister, Israel Katz, denounced the prosecutor’s pursuit for arrest warrants against Israel’s leaders as “a historic disgrace that will be remembered forever.”

He promised to organize a special committee to oppose any such move and to work with world leaders to guarantee that no warrants were issued against Israel’s leaders.

A number of U.S. legislators were quick to blast the prosecutor’s decision, with Sen. Lindsay Graham calling it an “outrageous decision” and a “slap in the face to the independent judiciary in Israel, which is renowned for their independence.”

Upstate New York Rep. Marc Molinaro (R-NY) branded it a “mistake” that will “forever damage the credibility of the ICC.”

“There can be no equivocation. Prime Minister Netanyahu is the leader of a democracy and is defending Israel’s right to exist following the horrific October 7th attacks,” Molinaro said.

“Hamas is a terrorist organization responsible for the deaths of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians.”

Former National Security Advisor John Bolton said the judgment demonstrated the ICC’s “fundamental illegitimacy.”

“To aid our ally Israel, the U.S. should take steps both in Congress and in the White House to condemn the ICC and impose sanctions, as I have previously suggested,” he said.

The International Criminal Court (ICC), headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands, has the authority to try persons with war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.

Israel is not a member of the International Criminal Court and contests its jurisdiction.
