  1. The ICJ referenced the on the ground reports from many United Nations officials. Many had been harassed by Israel or denied access.

    Letter by the Secretary-General to the President of Security Council invoking Article 99 of the United Nations Charter | 6 Dec. 2023 |

    WHO refutes Israel’s accusation at the Executive Board meeting yesterday that WHO is in “collusion” with Hamas and is “turning a blind eye” to the suffering of hostages being held in Gaza. Such false claims are harmful and can endanger our staff who are risking their lives. | 26 Jan. 2024 |

    Both the U.S. and Israel have doubled down on UN officials and institutions to delegitimize them, the John Bolton doctrine.

  2. Many interesting headlines out there … 🤒

    The Hague’s decision means Israel is now in the dock for genocide | TOI |

    US doubles down on dismissing genocide claim despite ICJ ruling | NSC John Kirby |

    ICJ’s Gaza decision shores up [post-WWII UN] rules-based order and puts west to test

    The ICJ ruling is a repudiation of Israel and its western backers

    Hopes of wooing the Global South to create a new world order always had an element of fantasy. Gaza should finally put an end to them. 

    The hypocrisy of the old western colonial world on display … adds to France’s defeat in Africa recently. The ICJ ruling will be welcomed by the Arab states and Iran alike. Certainly China is the triumphant third party.

  3. Israel nominated Aharon Barak as its ad hoc judge in the ICJ case brought by South Africa.

    Barak’s meticulous rulings and academic scholarship cover an impressive range of fields of law and knowledge and have promoted rights- minded discourse inside Israel. Given this background, however, Barak’s record on the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) is overwhelmingly disappointing.

  4. Blinken’s Effort to Mediate Pointless

    By God almighty … how can Antony tour the Middle East with a straight face and plead for upholding humanitarian law? Highly incredible … resign.

    U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken dismissed a case filed by South Africa against Israel at the International Court of Justice accusing it of genocide, calling the allegations “meritless” and saying they distract from efforts to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza.
