IN 2014 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked US lawmakers to help fend off Palestinian claims that his country engaged in “war crimes”.

Netanyahu met with a group of US legislators, including Rep. Steve Israel (D-LI,) to discuss the country’s tense security situation and some fissures in US-Israel relations. Netanyahu asked the delegation to help Israel stay out of the International Criminal Court, where its attacks on Gaza could come under scrutiny .

“The prime minister asked us to work together to ensure that this strategy of going to the ICC does not succeed,” Rep. Israel told The Post by phone from Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu is a war criminal and that makes the USA an accomplice to war crimes for aiding and abetting these, that's why the US is afraid to now step away and leave Netanyahu to his fate.

Israel has been part of US international CRIME WAVE virtually since its inception, Israel knows where all Americas bodies are buried. US crimes against the peoples of sovereign countries ,from Central America to Africa to Iran. Israel and the US have been partners in these crimes.

Do you think Israel has lost the right to exist?

MellowGuy the answer to your question is NO and that's a firm NO.

Israel like every other people has the right to exist. What it doesn't have the right to do , is invade another country, hold 2 million of that countries citizens hostage for over 60 years while effectively stealing their land by building settlements for hundreds of thousands of Israelis outside Israels defined borders.

Nice try though, lumping me in with all those other fringe savages and murderers who would love to kill every Jew in the Middle East.

It's quite disturbing to see Americans so indoctrinated with pro Israeli propaganda, they cannot even muster a word of dissent against the murderous war criminal government of Israels Netanyahu. Maybe that's why Americans sit mute , while their own government commits atrocities world wide in their name.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
